UPS Mechanics to Take Strike Vote

August 14, 2009: Teamsters Local 2727 will take a strike vote of 1,400 UPS plane mechanics by Sept. 14.

The company wants Teamster mechanics and retirees to start contributing to their health insurance premiums. Management also wants to reduce coverage.

Because they are covered by the Railway Labor Act, the mechanics can only strike if the National Mediation Board says UPS and the Teamsters are at impasse.
