• UPS Employees Approve National Master Contract

    UPS Info for UPSers Business As Usual As UPS and International Brotherhood of Teamsters Resolve Remaining Issues

    UPS employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters have voted to approve a new contract. While the National Master contract was approved, the union today informed the company that the agreement covering UPS Freight employees and some local agreements will require additional negotiation.

    "It will be 'business as usual' while UPS and the IBT resolve remaining issues and Teamster represented employees ratify new agreements," said John McDevitt, UPS Sr. Vice President, Human Resources and Labor Relations.

    The National Master contract, which covers approximately 235,000 full- and part-time employees in the United States, was negotiated well in advance of the current contract's expiration of July 31, 2013, and will extend contract coverage through July 31, 2018.

    UPS is committed to quickly resolving remaining issues on UPS Freight and supplemental agreements. This is part of the normal negotiating process and UPS is confident that these contracts will be resolved soon.

      Until they can get the rest of to say yes to the parts turned down it is sos. If the union and the company address the real problem that so many voted no on (Health Care) this will be resolved quickly. I will fix this real quick. In the west give them there UPS health and this is over now. The west was given until November of this year to come up with a plan equal or superior to CSHW. Our UPS health care will statisfy both of those requirements! Problem solved.
