    Default UPS Air Cargo Teamsters Ratify Contract

    Since it involves planes, I am putting it here.
    (LOUISVILLE, Ky.) – UPS aircraft mechanics and related employees at UPS Air Cargo have voted to ratify their newest contract with the company. The contract, which becomes amendable on November 1, 2023, makes UPS Air Cargo mechanics the highest-paid air cargo mechanics in the country by a wide margin.

    “We knew if we stuck together and stayed committed to protecting the pay and benefits we’ve earned over decades of hard work, we’d do what many thought was impossible and win big for our families, the future of our company and our customers,” said Teamsters Local 2727 President Tim Boyle. “This contract does just that, along with raising standards throughout the aviation industry.”

    Some of the improvements in the contract include an immediate 17.72 percent pay increase, raises each year resulting in a 32.61 percent increase in pay from current rates by the end of the contract and the protection of an unparalleled health care package with no premiums.

    UPS pilots have agreed to a contract extension.

    UPS, pilots agree on short-term contract extension
    UPS (NYSE: UPS) and the union representing its pilots reached a tentative agreement Monday on a two-year contract extension, giving the express carrier operational certainty as it competes against FedEx, DHL, Amazon and other logistics providers.
    The short-term agreement includes annual wage increases and improved pension benefits, the Independent Pilots Association (IPA) and Atlanta-based UPS said. The Atlanta-based delivery and logistics company said the deal provides it greater predictability and operational flexibility to meet growing customer demand for global air services.
    The contract covers 2,959 crewmembers, who must vote to ratify the deal by March 31. The IPA said contract specifics won’t be disclosed until the the proposal is presented to all UPS pilots. If approved, the contract would go into effect Sept. 1, 2021, when the current pact is scheduled to become amendable.

    This doesn't mention Teamster pilots, just the Air Line Pilots Association and the Independent Pilots Association.

    UPS pilots seek option to refuse Hong Kong missions
    The union representing UPS (NYSE: UPS) pilots has asked the express and freight delivery giant for the option to decline flight assignments to Hong Kong after the city tightened COVID screening requirements for aircrews.
    The Independent Pilots Association (IPA) wants the company to extend to Hong Kong an arrangement that allows cargo pilots to opt in for routes to mainland China, spokesman Brian Gaudet said.
    The voluntary program “has worked well for us in China,” he said. It provides UPS Airlines all the captains and first officers it needs to operate, and anybody who doesn’t feel safe flying into the theater doesn’t have to sign up.
    In the early days of the pandemic, China was very aggressive with nasal swab testing and spraying crews with unidentified disinfectants when they disembarked, but UPS was able to negotiate for different protocols, according to a source familiar with how express carriers operate in that country.
    UPS, which operates a regional parcel hub in Hong Kong, has not responded yet to the union, according to Gaudet.
    The story continues with the FedEx pilots also complaining about going to Hong Kong.
