Special  Notice to all employees of the City and County of Denver.

Dear Friends,

To those of you who are members of Teamsters Local 17, we are working to figure out how to protect you and keep you employed until you decide to leave employment voluntarily. Teamsters Local 17 is working with the Director of the Public Service Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to look at all aspects of WIOPA. One thing is crystal clear, the City and County of Denver is not interested in keeping good jobs in Denver.

With what we have seen so far, wages, benefits, and working conditions would drastically be cut to find the right bidder for this outsourcing of good jobs. Be assured whether you are a member of the Teamsters or not we are going to work tirelessly to keep good jobs in Denver.

To join Teamsters Local 17 go to, click the Public Service Division at the top of the page, and then fill out the application.  The stronger we are with your support, the louder the message.

Tyson Johnson, National Freight Director and Co-Chair of TNFINC released this statement today regarding the recently accepted contract extension for all members working for YRC.

This four page fax will answer some of the more commonly asked questions about the new agreement.  This Adobe formatted fax can be read HERE in it's entirety.

More updates from contract negotiations for UPS.

From:  Ken Hall, Co-Chair Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee

To:      UPS Local Unions

Re:      Status of Agreement

Date:   February 3, 2014

On Friday, January 31, 2014, the members of Local Union 135 passed their Rider.  As of now, 89% of all Supplements/Riders have passed, along with the National Master Agreement.  Only four Supplements/Riders remain unresolved.

I have heard from many frustrated members asking about when their pay Increases will become effective and when the new language will take effect.  Many members are also calling asking about when they will see increased pension benefits and for those currently in TeamCare, there are questions regarding their enhanced benefits and lower out of pocket expenses.

I have been In contact with the Negotiating Committees of the unresolved Supplements/Riders.  Hopefully they can resolve their issues quickly so that we can move forward. I will keep you updated.
