What's New at IBT 776
The IBT has scheduled a conference call for January 28, 2018 to update UPS and UPS Freight members on the process of negotiations. Full details on how to participate can be found below:
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCA) regulations pertaining to Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) are being implemented through a multi-year phase in program.
Local 776 recently conducted an ELD training seminar to familiarize affected individuals with the rule and their responsibilities under it. The ELD rule is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier and faster to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data. Drivers must understand and be able to use ELDs by the required deadline, including how to annotate and edit RODS, certify RODS, and collect required supporting documents. They will also need to know how to display and transfer data to safety officials when requested.
For more information on the ELD implementation please follow the link below:
On January 10-11, 2018, lead negotiators for the UPS Freight contract, Kris Taylor and Shawn Dougherty, met with members at the Harrisburg and York terminals. The purpose of meeting with the members was to discuss contract proposals and answer questions pertaining to the contract negotiating process. Joined by Local 776 President Edgar Thompson and UPS Freight Business Agent Spencer Dearth, the group logged several miles walking the dock and meeting with the members through the course of the two-day tour of the facilities. Preparations for negotiations by the IBT have been occurring for months for the UPS Package and UPS Freight contract and are scheduled to begin on January 22, 2018. The two UPS contracts expire in July 2018, with the UPS Package contract the largest collective bargaining agreement in the country.
