UPS Freight workers ratify initial contract

By a vote of 107-1, workers at UPS Freight in Indianapolis have ratified their first contract with the trucking unit. The deal, which calls for higher wages, more benefits and improved working conditions, was reached Sept. 30.

Local 135 represents 125 dockworkers and drivers.

The Teamsters intend to use the agreement as a pattern to organize other UPS Freight sites. The UPS Freight workers were with Overnight Transportation before Richmond, Va.-based Overnight was acquired by UPS in 2005.
