    Crunch time in UPS-pilots talks? 5 takeaways - Courier-Journal

    UPS calls pilots, aircraft mechanics recent tactics "posturing."

    United Parcel Service and its pilots union are set to return to the bargaining table this week after five years of negotiations, the last three of which have been under the oversight of a federal mediator.

    Why, after five years of closed-door talks, has the pilots union gone public with news of its strike authorization vote and the establishment of a strike operations center in Louisville? UPS officials called the latest announcement of the strike center on Fern Valley Road a publicity stunt clearly intended to ramp up pressure on the company.
