TWU Local 592 Ratifies UPS Contract with 79% Vote
Every Member Participated in Voting
Members of Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) Local 592 ratified their contract with the United Parcel Service (UPS) with a 79% vote. Every member in the Air Dispatch Group participated in voting.
The TWU and UPS spent more than four years negotiating the contract. A tentative agreement was reached last month on August 23. The new agreement will become effective on Oct. 1, 2019.
Air Division Director Mike Mayes said, “This contract provides our Air Dispatch Group members with some of the best wages, health care and pension security in the industry. The fact that every member in the working group participated in voting speaks volumes: Our members trusted their negotiating team, who fought uphill for the best contract possible.”
