Sign the Petition: Extend COVID Paid Leave at UPS

Growing numbers of UPS Teamsters are having to quarantine without pay, because they have reached the 10-day cap on COVID pay. Sign the petition to tell UPS not to cap COVID paid leave when we need it most. 

 

The COVID paid leave agreement signed by the International Union and UPS at the start of the pandemic in March caps COVID paid leave at ten days. That was more than nine months ago. 

COVID cases are skyrocketing and the end of the pandemic is still months away. There is no “cap” on our exposure to this virus. 

UPS Teamsters are calling on the company to protect workers and the public by eliminating the 10-day cap on paid leave for workers who have to quarantine because of COVID.

UPS Teamsters have more than answered the call. We have handled record volume and worked peak season hours for more than nine months.

The ten-day cap on COVID leave is forcing some UPSers to return to work as a health risk or to go without a paycheck. 

Going on temporary disability means lower pay for quarantined UPSers and leaves our union health funds subsidizing UPS by paying COVID benefits the company should be paying. 

When UPS does pay COVID leave, checks are often delayed and not subject to penalty pay—another loophole that needs to be fixed.  

Sign the petition to call on UPS to protect workers and the public by eliminating the 10-day cap on paid leave for workers who have to quarantine and paying COVID leave on time.
