Last paragraph of that article is a quote from Carol Tome it says this; “Our goal with the Teamsters is win-win-win,” she told investors in July. But she added that UPS is “building contingency plans.”

Anyone have ideas on what those contingency plans are? Because she declined to comment when asked.
i would bet PVD's

She probably thinks she can hire PVDs to do all the work lol.

of course they have to have contingency plans?
this is a BILLION dollar company with shareholders like me to protect.

win-win is always the best scenario.
It won't be as easy as it sounds but i don't think there will be a strike.

If las vegas makes book on it I will bet no strike.

I haven’t seen anything from the previous contracts that make it look like there won’t be a strike. No 2/3 rule. Plus the fact that you won’t get anything unless you strike.

After reading the article on CNN , you may be right. The company speaks about a contingency plan if you go on strike. That sounds like chest beating BS. How are they going to replace 350,000 workers deliver 21,000,000 packages a day?

But what is worrisome is that UPS handles about 6% of the nations business , The president could order a NO STRIKE as a matter of national security as Reagan did with the air traffic controller strike.

The union called Reagan's bluff and lost. Those controllers were fired and replaced.

Something to think about.
