    UPS pilot union reaches agreement with company to make China flying ‘voluntary’ amid coronavirus - CNBC

    The union that represents United Parcel Service pilots said Wednesday it has reached an agreement with the delivery giant to make flying to mainland China “voluntary” as the coronavirus spreads.

    “This joint effort addresses crewmember concerns over safety during the coronavirus health crisis,” the union said in a statement.

    Pilots who tell the company that they aren’t comfortable flying China routes because of coronavirus will be “temporarily replaced on those flights,” UPS said in a statement.
