Ups Teamsters Master Agreement

Teamsters ratified the master`s contract last October, although more union members voted against the agreement than they did. According to trade union rules, two-thirds of them must reject the agreement if less than half of the members vote. Only 44% of the members took part in the ratification referendum, but among them they did not reject the agreement by a two-thirds majority. LAVAL, That. – Teamsters Canada and UPS Canada have ratified a five-year collective agreement for front-line workers, including drivers. 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. 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.

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. „This agreement provides our employees and customers with lasting stability for the next five years,“ said Dominic Porporino, President of UPS Canada. „At a time when so many Canadians need supply chains for important goods, ratification demonstrates our employees` commitment to continue to serve our customers and rewards them by improving their compensation and benefits.“ 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. After ratification, the treaty would enter into force once the natives voted on additions, including the last local 243, based near Detroit. „We recognize that this has been a long process and appreciate the patience and support of our members,“ Denis Taylor, co-chair of the national bargaining committee and director of the Teamsters Package Division, said in a statement. „I would like to thank all the members who participated in this important process. I would like to thank and congratulate everyone on the negotiating committee for the long hours they spent in these negotiations, which took place under unusual and difficult circumstances,“ added Mr.
