Sign the Coronavirus Petition by UPS Workers

UPS workers are demanding the company do the right thing during the Coronavirus outbreak by improving paid sick leave and sanitary working conditions.

From Amazon to Walmart, UPS is doing less than nonunion companies to protect workers from the Coronavirus.

Amazon announced it will pay up to two weeks of sick time for workers who miss work because of the Coronavirus. Even Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is paying employees up to two weeks if have they been exposed to the Coronavirus or show symptoms.

By comparison, UPS says workers exposed to Coronavirus can take an unpaid leave of absence. That’s unacceptable.

Sign the petition to tell UPS to:

  • Provide 14 Days of Sick Leave to employees who are quarantined because they have been diagnosed with, exposed to, or have symptoms of Coronavirus

  • Sanitize Our Workplace by cleaning heavily-used areas and providing hand sanitizer to employees.

This is per Article 33 of the contract, which provides for a COLA raise to Teamster employees “who have completed their appropriate wage progression schedule.”
