UPS (NYSE: UPS) today was notified by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) that the Master Agreement between UPS and the IBT was approved for implementation on April 25 for all UPS employees covered by the Agreement.

"We are pleased with this notification and we will move forward to implement the terms of the contract," said Scott Davis, UPS chairman and CEO.

Key elements of the collective bargaining agreement are as follows:

  • The contract is effective from 8/1/13 to 7/31/18 and applicable retroactive benefits payments will be made to employees within 30 days.
  • Competitive wage and benefit increases over the 5-year term of the agreement with a new base wage for part-time employees of $10 per hour.
  • Transition of Teamster-represented employees from UPS-sponsored health care plans to multi-employer health care plans. This includes a pre-tax cash payment of $2.3 billion and the transfer of $1.2 billion of postretirement obligations by UPS to the multi-employer plans, as well as a pre-tax charge of approximately $1.1 billion.
