As UPS drivers deal with unprecedented temperatures, lack of air conditioning, and being told by management to simply drink more water and eat watermelon, their employer is shelling out $2,625 a day (plus expenses) to anti-union consultants.
Recent filings with the U.S. Department of Labor reveal a disturbing escalation in UPS' assault on worker rights. For example, one filing reviewed by LaborLab this week shows UPS funneling $2,625 a day to union-busting consultants Luisa Perez and Peter List, a man who subscribes to the debunked QAnon conspiracy theory.
The reason UPS is ramping up its attack on workers' Section 7 Rights is because the company and union employees represented by the Teamsters are gearing up for what is expected to be a massive contract fight.
