The Teamsters UPS National Negotiating Committee, pursuant to Article XII of the IBT Constitution announced the 2013 National Master United Parcel Service Agreement, All Supplements, Riders and Addenda will be in effect starting April 25, 2014.

The wages contained in the Agreement are retroactive to August 1, 2013 and UPS has committed to expediting the checks for your retroactive wage increases. The retro check will be a separate check to avoid being taxed at a higher rate. In addition, UPS will begin making retroactive contributions to the health and welfare and pension funds immediately. UPS currently owes over $300 million to Teamster members and funds. Now Teamsters will be made whole.

The Agreement contains unparalleled wage and benefit increases. New language offers strong protection from harassment and retaliation.

Re: 2013 National Master United Parcel Service Agreement, All Supplements, Riders and Addenda

The 2013 National Master United Parcel Service Agreement and all Supplements, Riders and Addenda are in effect starting April 25, 2014. The Teamsters National Negotiating Committee took this action pursuant to Article XII of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Constitution.

The economics contained in the Agreement are retroactive to August 1, 2013. UPS has committed to expediting payment of your retroactive wages. The retro check will be a separate check from your regular paycheck. UPS owes Teamster members and funds over $300 million in wages and contributions. It is time to make Teamster members and their funds whole.

The changes to health care that were approved by a majority of UPS Teamsters in June 2013 will go into effect June 1, 2014. If your health care is changing as a result of this Agreement, you will be receiving information in the coming weeks regarding your benefits.

It was an honor to represent UPS Teamsters across the country in these negotiations. Through our united efforts we have negotiated a strong contract that includes pay increases, excellent benefits and new language that protects our jobs and improves our working conditions. We would like to thank the UPS Teamsters across the country who have waited patiently while our Teamsters collective bargaining process was completed.

If you have any questions regarding this contract please contact Local 177 Union hall or visit www.UPSContractFacts.org for more information.
