UPS and Teamsters reach agreement in labour negotiations
UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the union representing about 330,000 UPS employees in the U.S., have reached a tentative collective bargaining agreement.
The five-year agreement covers U.S. Teamsters-represented employees in small-package roles and is subject to voting and ratification by union members.
In a statement issued yesterday (25 July), Carol Tomé, UPS chief executive officer, commented: “Together we reached a win-win-win agreement on the issues that are important to Teamsters leadership, our employees and to UPS and our customers.
“This agreement continues to reward UPS’s full- and part-time employees with industry-leading pay and benefits while retaining the flexibility we need to stay competitive, serve our customers and keep our business strong.”
