This is a great contract for UPS teamsters... 1. The new contract provides the largest increase of wages and benefits in UPS history. 2. The contract will create more than 10,000 new jobs for Teamster members by eliminating subcontractors now working for UPS and by re-classifying some current non-union jobs as union positions. 3. Full time workers' wages increase by $5 an hour over six years. 4. Part-timers wages increase by $6 an hour over six years. 5. The new contract prohibits UPS from "double-breasting," a practice where a company hires new employees at lower wages than those paid workers already on the payroll. 6. Pension benefits are increased for part-time workers. 7. For the first time the new contract provides health insurance for part-time retirees. 8. The new agreement was accepted unanimously by the union's bargaining committee, which is made up of local leaders from around the country.
