Teamsters, UPS Wrap Up First Week of Contract Negotiations

January 25, 2018

The Teamsters National Negotiating Committee wrapped up the first week of negotiations today after both sides exchanged initial UPS and UPS Freight contract proposals.

“This week was for both sides to present their initial non-economic proposals and for both parties to ask questions about their intent,” said Denis Taylor, Director of the Teamsters Package Division. “While these proposals are likely to be amended as negotiations proceed, it was good to finally present the members’ positions. We will reconvene our talks next week in Virginia.”

While the negotiations have just started, Taylor said the National Negotiating Committee reiterated its resolve to protect members’ interests.
