On This Day in 1874
American photographer Lewis Hine born in Oshkosh, Wisc. His powerful photographs showing kids at work were instrumental in changing child labor laws in the United States. When Hine was commissioned to document the construction of the Empire State Building, he photographed the workers in precarious positions while they secured the steel framework of the structure, taking many of the same risks that the workers endured.

UPS Members Offer Contract Proposal Recommendations
Updated On: Aug 08, 2012

August 8, 2012

   More than 60 UPS members met with President Denis Taylor and Business Agent Eric Wood Sunday, August 5, to review the current "National Master United Parcel Service Agreement and Atlantic Area Supplemental Agreement," and discuss proposal ideas for the next round of bargaining.

   The current agreement expires July 13, 2013, but the bargaining process begins September 27, 2012 when the negotiating committees meet with the company to exchange proposals.

   The bargaining unit was well represented; someone from every operation was in attendance. Stewards and rank-and-file members offered their proposals as Wood moved them through every article of the contract.

   "It was an excellent turnout, proof that many of our members want the opportunity to be part of the process," said Wood. "People took the issues seriously. We now have proposals of substance that will be brought forward to the National and Atlantic Area negotiating committees."

   Members were reminded of the importance of enforcing the contract every single day. "This is the best, biggest contract in the IBT - and in the industry," said Taylor. "Enforce what you have. Make it work for you."

   The best contract in the world is only as good as the paper it's printed on if it is not strictly enforced.
