  • IBT and UPS Agreement on COVID-19 Protocols
    Updated On: Mar 19, 2020

    The International Brotherhood of Teamsters reached an agreement on Wednesday with UPS regarding the workplace protocols regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).  Read the agreement attached below.  

    "The health and safety of our members in the workplace is our highest priority," said Local 391 President Mike McGaha.  "Any member of this Union who is sick and is being denied leave by their employer, call a business agent right away."  

    The Teamsters UPS and UPS Freight National Negotiating Committees and UPS have reached an agreement to protect members at UPS and UPS Freight who may be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  

    In summary, the agreement provides for paid leave for any worker who is diagnosed with COVID-19 and is required to be quarantined or if they are quarantined due to a family member’s illness.

    While on leave, the pay will be:

    8 hours per work day for a Full-Time employee, max of 10 work days;
    For UPS workers only: 3.5 hours per work day for a Part-Time employee, max of 10 work days;
    *For UPS Freight workers only:  4 hours per work day for Part-Time employee, max of 10 work days.
    *For UPS CSI part-time employees, your local addenda guarantee will be applied.

    Health and Welfare and Pension contributions will be made as required by the supplement for these hours;
    If an employee self-quarantines, uses paid time off (PTO), and is later diagnosed with COVID-19, the company will re-populate the Paid-Time-Off up to the 80/35 hours.

    Further, any employee directly impacted by the virus and missing work as set forth above will not have those days counted as an attendance infraction.

    UPS has also altered delivery requirements to minimize direct contact with customers by not requiring signatures from the customer.

    Finally, the federal government has entered into an agreement with UPS to provide transportation and logistical support for the Coronavirus drive-through testing sites.  Our members’ sole role will be limited to the pickup and delivery of test kits and supplies.

    It is expected as businesses across the country begin to shut down, there may be large scale layoffs due to the decrease in commerce.
