Teamster Pension Divide

UPS Teamsters earn dramatically different pensions depending on the plan they’re in—with the company-controlled UPS Pension Plan in the former Central States areas paying the lowest benefits by far.
The Pension Comparison Chart shows the range and variation of benefits for the great majority of pension plans covering UPS Teamsters.

Part-Time Wage Increase a Must

When Teamster members at our union’s largest and most profitable employer are making less than minimum wage, you know there’s something wrong.
But that’s just what is happening at UPS in Washington where the starting wage for part-timers is 54 cents an hour less than the state minimum wage. The minimum wage in some other states will soon pass the UPS starting wage.

New Threats to UPS Pensions

Speaking at the UPS National Grievance Panel in Florida in early March, Ken Hall confirmed that the International Union is looking at early contract negotiations with UPS.
Protecting our pensions and healthcare has to be a top priority.
UPS has come after our pensions at the bargaining table before—and can be counted on to do so again. We need to be ready for the company’s new threats to our pensions and retirement security.

                     was among 13 logistics companies fined a total of $225 million Wednesday by European Union antitrust regulators for allegedly being part of a group of cartels that colluded to fix air freight forwarding prices.

UPS's share of the total fine was about $13 million, according to a news release from the European Commission.

The commission said the group fixed air freight forwarding prices between 2002 and 2007. UPS (NYSE: UPS) told Reuters the cartel investigation in Europe started in 2007.
