Important Notice to All UPS and UPS Freight Members

There will be a referendum on whether to accept the proposed changes to the National Master United Parcel Service Agreement, Supplements and Riders.

The referendum is being conducted by mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed to all eligible members on or about Tuesday, May 28, 2013. All ballots must be received at the designated post office box in Lantham, Maryland, by 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 20, 2013, to be counted.

UPS and UPS Freight members of Local 769 who have not received a ballot by Thursday, June 6, 2013, should contact the Teamsters Local 769 Miami office at (305)642-6255 to request a ballot. Ballots may be requested through Thursday June 13, 2013, 12:00 PM Eastern Time.

Instructions for completion of the ballot are enclosed in the ballot package.


Some of the packets of ballots mailed to UPS Package Teamsters contain a return envelope that says “UPS Freight” on the front.

Please be assured that all of these will be counted in the UPS Package Referendum with the appropriate supplements and riders. The envelopes contain a unique identification code that allows the Independent Election Supervisor to make sure the ballot is counted with the UPS Package Referendum.

In addition, all ballots are clearly marked as to which Agreement the ballots are for and they are color coded. Observers and the Election Supervisor will be able to clearly see that they are being sorted and counted with the proper Agreement.

There is no need to request a replacement ballot. Please return the ballot in the envelope that was in your packet and it will be counted.

We apologize for any confusion.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
