Teamsters Authorize Strike as Negotiations with UPS Heat Up
"Teamsters union members voted Tuesday to give their negotiators the right to call for a strike if the two sides are not able to come to an agreement," Nathan Bomey reports for USA Today. UPS spokespeople voiced optimism that a deal would be reached before a strike happened. Many speculate that the contention may center around expanded UPS service and Sunday deliveries. No official announcements have been made.
"UPS spokesman Glenn Zaccara declined to comment on how a strike would affect the company's ability to deliver packages," Bomey reports.
