      DiNapoli: Despite Extra Cash, Deficit Remains

      The state has extra money, but don’t think of it as a surplus, Comptroller Tom DiNapoli cautioned on Monday. “I wouldn’t call it a surplus. It’s really more of an unexpected windfall, it’s unexpected money that comes out of the surplus,” DiNapoli said. DiNapoli, re-elected to a third term earlier this month, told reporters at the Capitol that the money should be treated as essentially a one-shot windfall.

      Teamsters Announce UPS Will Add Thousands Of New Union Package Jobs

      Ken Hall Says New Teamster Contract Enforcement Begins Immediately (WASHINGTON) – General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall announced today that UPS will add thousands of new full-time package jobs across the country this year in the face of strong Teamster enforcement of the new National Master UPS Agreement. The announcement follows months of discussion between the union and the company. UPS is now moving forward with plans to add thousands of new package jobs in all areas of the country. Hiring has already started, and the new jobs will be in addition to the regular filling of jobs through attrition. The new contract took effect April 25 and is the largest collective bargaining agreement in North America, covering about 240,000 UPS Teamsters. It contains new language that allows the union to take inadequate staffing levels to an arbitrator in centers with excessive overtime issues. In addition, new protections and procedures involving the SurePost program will ensure that more SurePost packages are delivered by Teamster members. Both of these changes are already resulting in new jobs across the country.
