General Membership
Updated On: Jun 13, 2018

General Membership Meeting Notice:  There was a vote of the membership at the May 2018 General Membership Meeting to suspend the General Membership Meetings for the summer months of June, July and August 2018 for the summer. Although there was an attempt to misinform the members about suspending the General Membership meetings. The motion passed overwhelmingly as it has for over 35 years.

.

The vote is only to suspend the General Membership meetings, not to close for the summer, or to give Agents the summer off, as some members with political agendas have been telling the membership.  This year it is very important so the Local has time to explain the UPS contract once it is ready for membership vote. This is the largest contract with over 260,000 members.

.

Local 988 conducted a Steward Conference for training our Stewards in June 2018.

Local 988 has called a special pension meeting on June 14th for retirees and active members in Central States. John Murphy, IBT Vice President, will conduct the meeting to inform members and retirees about actions needed to save Central States.

.

Local 988 will call special UPS, UPS Freight and UPS CSI meetings when a proposed contract is agreed upon to explain the proposed contract. Additionally, Local 988 will go to the extended Centers and hold meetings there so the members will not have to travel to Houston.

.

Additional meetings will be called a needed by craft or issue. Have a great summer and enjoy your families.

.

June, July and August meetings were suspended at the May 2018 meeting.

.

Meetings will resume September 16, 2018. All members are strongly encouraged to attend the General Membership meetings.
