UPS (NYSE: UPS) today announced record 2012 fourth quarter and full year adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.32 and $4.53 respectively, with the U.S. Domestic segment leading the way. The company generated annual free cash flow of approximately $5.4 billion, a testament to operations execution and the emphasis UPS places on capital efficiency. UPS estimates that Hurricane Sandy reduced earnings per share by approximately $0.05. I think its about time the union and UPS take care of the part timers. They have been left behind in the past few contracts. They obviously have the cash to do so. Both part timers and deserve a good contract but even more so for the part timers. Full timers make 30+ an hr 45 an hr OT plus great health bennys. Not too much to complain about in my eyes. Most part timers dont even come close to making 15-20 dollars an hr. Perhaps a large signing bonus and or jump in pay for part timers?
