The Teamsters National UPS Freight Negotiating Committee also made headway this week in a number of areas. Tentative agreements were reached on Article 13, Compensation Claims, Article 15, Equipment and Safety, Article 23, Time Clocks and Timesheets, and Article 24, Leave of Absence.
These agreements include improvements or additions related to employees who are permanently disabled, identifying a serious accident, creating technology change protection language, and instituting jury duty and funeral leave for long-term casuals. The committee also added maternity and paternity leave and a rehabilitation program into the agreed upon language.
The next round of negotiations is scheduled for the week of April 22.
