UPS has more than 434,000 workers worldwide, with more than 80% in the U.S. Most of them are unionized and won’t be affected by the changes. But the move could set up a showdown with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which represents 268,000 UPS workers and is preparing to negotiate a new contract.
Which will be interesting. The union is in a different place than it was in the last round of negotiations.
