    UPS Airlines to provide work for some laid-off employees - Business First

    United Parcel Service Inc. and Teamsters Local Union 2727 have reached an agreement to return some laid-off employees to work immediately, according to a statement from union officials.

    UPS will provide a total of 44,000 new work hours for employees who currently are laid-off, allowing some to return to full-time work.

    “It is the result of a lot of hard work by both the union and the company to come up with a solution to outstanding disputes under the agreement,” Robert Combine, president of Louisville-based Teamsters Local 2727, said in the release. “And it not only gets our members back to work, it also gives the parties the opportunity to move forward under our new collective bargaining agreement in order to build a more productive relationship.”
