Make UPS Deliver

February 1, 2013: UPS Teamsters stand up for a better contract as the company announces its 2012 profits.

In a tough economy, UPS continues to make huge profits. On Jan. 31, the company announced it hauled in $2.05 billion in profits in the fourth quarter of 2012—not counting a one-time accounting charge. Click here for TDU's detailed coverage.

The company was making record profits in 2007 but the Hoffa administration gave UPS contract concessions.
