    Latest Round Of UPS Negotiations Wraps Up | International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT)

    November 15, 2012The latest round of UPS negotiations wrapped up this week with the National Negotiating Committee pressing for more full-time jobs and addressing 9.5 concerns.
    The bargaining sessions opened in St. Petersburg, Florida, with lengthy company presentations on SurePost and a market outlook for the package industry. The company also claimed that rising health care costs were a big concern.
    However, the National Negotiating Committee countered by presenting proposals to address 9.5 concerns, dispatch times, backfilling jobs and limiting the use of technology for disciplinary purposes. Negotiations continued in Washington, D.C. this week.
    Negotiations are currently focused on working conditions, work rules, harassment and safety. After these issues are addressed, negotiations will then turn to economic issues including pensions, health care and wages.
    The UPS contract is the largest collective bargaining agreement in the country. The UPS and UPS Freight contracts cover about 250,000 Teamsters. The current five-year agreements expire July 31, 2013.
    Negotiations are scheduled to resume Jan. 7 in Washington, D.C.
