    UPS aircraft mechanics vote for strike - Reuters

    The 1,400 U.S. mechanics who maintain United Parcel Service Inc's (UPS.N) worldwide fleet of 263 aircraft authorized a strike against the company, union officials said on Tuesday, though contract talks between the company and the workers will continue later this month.

    The mechanics, members of Teamsters Local 2727, will not go on strike as a result of the action. The vote expresses their willingness to walk off the job if ongoing negotiations hit an impasse and union leaders call a strike.
