    UPS reaches tentative deal with mechanics - Atlanta Business Chronicle

    UPS Airlines, a division of Atlanta-based United Parcel Service Inc., has reached a tentative deal with mechanics represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 2727 after more than four years without a contract.

    Teamsters Local 2727 represents about 1,200 plane mechanics who work for UPS, and many of those workers are based in Louisville, Ky., where UPS’s Worldport air sorting hub is located.

    UPS and the Teamsters have been negotiating for several years with the help of the National Mediation Board.
