More than 60,000 full-time UPS Teamsters in the Central Region, South and the Carolinas have won record pension increases of up to $1,000/month.
The IBT-UPS Pension Plan covers more Teamsters in 22 states. It is the biggest pension plan covering full-time UPS Teamsters, but for years members in it have gotten the lowest benefits of all major Teamster pension funds.
By standing together and standing up to UPS, members have won record pension increases.
UPS walked away from the bargaining table on July 5 after telling our union, “We have nothing more to offer.” Yesterday, the company returned to the table and agreed to a tentative agreement that forces the company to deliver record wage increases on top of all the improvements we had already won in our year-long contract campaign. The full Tentative Agreement is now available on the UPS Teamsters app and here.
UPS contract negotiations are resuming next week. If a tentative agreement is not reached, 340,000 UPS Teamsters will be on strike on August 1. Over 1,100 UPS Teamsters joined our Get Strike Ready webinar to learn how to organize an effective picket line and a winning strike.
The IBT and Local Unions are in charge of strike preparation. But we can all help get strike-ready. Check out the UPS Teamsters United Strike Preparation Toolkit which includes:
