We still haven’t heard a peep from Hoffa since UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters Voted No. Now, we know why. A few days after the ballot count, Hoffa and his top advisers skipped town for a 10-day trip to Singapore.
A growing number of International Union Vice Presidents are calling for Hoffa to respect the members vote at UPS, declare that the contract is not ratified and to hold an emergency meeting of the General Executive Board.
Hoffa’s Package Division Director Denis Taylor has created chaos and confusion by announcing that the UPS contract is ratified, even though members Voted No and UPS announced the contract was rejected and negotiations would resume.
