UPS National Master Agreement

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has released the final version of the UPS National Master Agreement that is ready to print.

We’ve uploaded it below, but you can also locate this agreement here for easier, future reference.

When the books are published and ready for distribution, we will update with details.

Americold Contract Passes by 95%

On May 17, 2019, the Americold Contract was approved by 95%. 81% of the eligible membership voted in the process. The new language will deliver many new improvements, including an immediate raise in pay.

We will update once the contract books are available in addition to posting the ratified language on the website (it is available as the tentative agreement here).

Americold Contract Vote Info

The Americold contract vote will take place Friday, May 17th, from 6:30 am to 3:30 pm at the outside break area of the Americold Meacham location (350 Meacham, Fort Worth, TX).  Immediately following, the ballot count will be tabulated.

Only members are allowed to vote, but applications will be available at the voting location on Friday. Anyone with a signed application will be afforded the opportunity to vote at that time.

Since January, our local has increased Americold’s Local 767 membership by 50%. We are excited to continue this trend and are hopeful all employees will be encouraged to join, as well.

Many improvements have been included within this tentative agreement. To review, please view this link.

Tentative Agreement Reached Between Teamsters Local 767 & Americold Meacham and Railhead

Teamsters Local 767 is pleased to announce that a tentative four-year agreement with Americold Logistics has been reached.  

We won great improvements to the language including: streamlining the grievance process, increasing the time employees have to file a grievance, and lowering the amount of time the company has to discipline associates.  

Additionally, we improved the overtime process to “no call needed” to allow members’ abilities to plan their days around the overtime more efficiently. With this new agreement, the overtime will have to be attached to the scheduled shift or on Day Off only.

Associates will now be allowed to roll over sick time to the new calendar year.

Wages were improved across the board for all four classifications:

  • For maintenance, we negotiated a significant bump in the first year with great raises in years 2,3,4.
  • LTO and Inventory both shall receive the following raises: 

                                                2019: $  .51

                                                2020: $  .52

                                                2021: $  .54

                                                2022: $  .55

  • Janitor shall receive the following raises:

                                                2019: $  .42

                                                2020: $  .43

                                                2021: $  .45

                                                2022: $  .46

The company additionally has agreed to retroactive pay after ratification. Voting will take place on May 17.
