UPS reaches deal with union Teamsters to avert strike

A strike at shipping giant UPS appears to have been averted in the US, after the company reached a tentative deal with the union that represents much of its staff. UPS chief executive Carole Tomé said the agreement continues to reward UPS staff with "Industry-leading pay and benefits" while still allowing the company to stay competitive. UPS has the biggest unionised workforce of any company in the US, with more than 300,000 full- and part-time workers - such as drivers - represented by the union International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Teamsters General President Sean M. O'Brien said UPS had agreed to spend $30bn more on workers as a result of union pressure. The union said UPS had also committed to ensuring air conditioning in all larger delivery vehicles, sprinter vans, and package cars purchased after 1 Jan 2024.
