    Industrial strife looms following TNT, UPS merger - Transport and Logistics News - Australia

    United Parcel Service Pty Ltd (UPS) workers are pursuing their right to strike as the company’s refusal to negotiate a fair agreement places their livelihood in jeopardy, according to acting national secretary of the Transport Workers Union Michael Kaine.

    The TWU represents hundreds of UPS employees along the eastern seaboard in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, and thousands of members working for TNT across the country,” Mr Kaine said.

    Since the $6.4 billion dollar merger between the two delivery giants was announced in March, TWU workplace representatives have been negotiating for an agreement that reflects the substantially different circumstances in which existing UPS employees now find themselves.
