Ups Teamsters Agreement

» Posted by on Apr 13, 2021 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

UPS Store employees are not unionized and are not covered by this agreement. UPS Freight stopped pickups last year pending a workers` strike. The company and the union reached an agreement to avoid a strike, which nevertheless led to disruption. Negotiations between the union and UPS began well before July 31, 2018, the expiration date of the previous five-year contract. An agreement was not only a long process, but also a controversial process. The implementation of the contract guarantees a level of security for UPS for the next four years. “This agreement and the master`s contract previously negotiated for UPS Freight employees help ensure that UPS and our employees are well positioned to succeed in the years to come,” said Teri McClure, Chief Human Resources Officer und Senior Vice President of Labor at UPS.

Workers who already receive the maximum rate will receive an increase of $4.10 over the five-year contract. Full-time seniority workers (at least 90 days on duty) earn twice as much time on weekends if they work at least five hours.

One of the controversial topics at the negotiating table was the implementation of technology in the operation of the UPS. The new contract requires UPS to hire teamsters six months before the announcement of business plans to integrate new technologies such as drones, driverless vehicles or road trains. However, the agreement does not give the union a veto. Teamsters represent nearly 125,000 workers across Canada. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which is affiliated with Teamsters Canada, has 1.4 million members in North America. Visit teamsters.ca for more information.

Technology is a top priority for UPS as it undergoes a $20 billion transformation over three years to further automate its network. Chief Information and Engineering Officer Juan Perez called 2019 “a year of investment” for UPS.

“I would like to thank all the members who participated in this important process.
