Airplane mechanics decide on new labor pact with UPS

David A. Mann

Teamsters 2727 members have voted to ratify a new contract with United Parcel Service Inc. This union represents about 1,400 aircraft mechanics and related employees. The union said it makes UPS Air Cargo mechanics the highest-paid air cargo mechanics in the country by a wide margin. “We knew if we stuck together and stayed committed to protecting the pay and benefits we’ve earned over decades of hard work, we’d do what many thought was impossible and win big for our families, the future of our company and our customers,” Teamsters Local 2727 President Tim Boyle said in a news release.
