Teamsters Local 89 president says UPS strike is possible in Louisville - Business First
Even though unionized United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS) workers approved a national master contract in a vote last week, Teamsters Local 89 president Fred Z said he believes a strike could still be on the horizon for Louisville-area UPS workers.
That’s because two contract supplements, which apply only to workers locally, were roundly rejected by Local 89 members. The vote counts can be found on the Teamsters Local 89 Web site.
Fred Z said in an interview today that the supplements were rejected because of a number of concerns, including matters related to seniority, health care and split shifts.
