    Union: At least 36 UPS employees in Tucson facility tested positive for COVID-19 - KGUN9

    The union representing UPS workers in Tucson says there has been an outbreak of COVID-19 at one of its facilities.

    Teamsters Local 104 said in a news release Thursday they believe at least 36 employees of a key UPS distribution facility in Tucson have tested positive for the coronavirus, three of whom were admitted to intensive care units.

    A recent KGUN 9 investigation found several people in Tucson waiting weeks for deliveries from UPS due to staffing issues related to COVID-19 and a higher-than normal volume of packages at the facility on Silverlake Road. In that investigation, UPS declined to say how many of its employees had tested positive for the virus.
