LAVAL, That. – Teamsters Canada and UPS Canada have ratified a five-year collective agreement for front-line workers, including drivers. Negotiations on a number of endorsements covering local working rules, as well as the separate agreement covering some 11,000 Teamsters employees within the UPS Freight network, will continue. One of the controversial topics at the negotiating table was the implementation of technology in the operation of the UPS. The new contract requires UPS to hire teamsters six months before the announcement of business plans to integrate new technologies such as drones, driverless vehicles or road trains. However, the agreement does not give the union a veto. Christopher MonetteDirector Public AffairsTeamsters CanadaCell: email@example.com Negotiations between the union and UPS began well before July 31, 2018, the expiry date of the previous five-year contract. An agreement was not only a long process, but also a controversial process. Article 43 Premium Services: Recruitments for sleep teams in Article 43 have increased significantly.
Miles far exceeding all rates in the industry have been tentatively decided. In addition, the National Committee successfully negotiated a provision to move many of the loads that are currently being moved from the railways and to move these loads to newly created threshold teams, resulting in at least 2,000 new full-time jobs for members. Sleeper team jobs are the highest paid jobs in the bargaining unit. It will also allow part-time workers to offer more full-time opportunities, as full-time workers fill these positions and create full-time openings. The implementation of the contract guarantees a level of security for UPS for the next four years. “This agreement and the master`s contract previously negotiated for UPS Freight employees help ensure that UPS and our employees are well positioned to succeed in the years to come,” said Teri McClure, Chief Human Resources Officer und Senior Vice President of Labor at UPS. “This agreement provides our employees and customers with lasting stability for the next five years,” said Dominic Porporino, President of UPS Canada. “At a time when so many Canadians need supply chains for important goods, ratification demonstrates our employees` commitment to continue to serve our customers and rewards them by improving their compensation and benefits.” UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters union have entered into a preliminary labour agreement that would cover UPS employees represented by Teamsters in small parcel rolls.
