UPS and Teamsters Union Reach Tentative Contract

Breaking news image - UPS and Teamsters Union reach tentative contract

UPS and Teamsters Union have reached a tentative contract, potentially averting a strike that threatened to disrupt package deliveries for independent pharmacies nationwide.

The agreement was announced Tuesday, the first day that UPS and the Teamsters returned to the bargaining table after negotiations broke down earlier in July.

Negotiators for UPS and the Teamsters Union had already reached tentative agreements on several issues, including cameras and air conditioning in the delivery trucks. But clashes continued over increasing pay for part-time workers, who make up more than half of the UPS employees represented by the union.

Teamsters will begin voting on the new five-year contract Aug. 3 and concludes Aug. 22.
