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.

This year, UPS Teamsters are getting involved in the Make UPS Deliver campaign to win a fair contract this time.
