Strike Authorization Vote Results
UPS and UPS Freight Teamsters have approved giving their respective negotiating committees the right to call a strike, if necessary.
The UPS members authorized a strike, if necessary, by a 93 percent margin. At UPS Freight, the margin was 91 percent.
The vote was conducted by electronic secret ballot and the tally was released tonight.
“This vote by our UPS and UPS Freight members gives the negotiating committees bargaining leverage this week and during subsequent negotiations for the national contract and the supplements,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division and Co-Chairman of the Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee. “It is very helpful to have the members’ backing as we work toward negotiating strong contracts at UPS and UPS Freight.”
