The UPS Strike

(PDF PDF icon)

A number of commentators have described the recent Teamsters' strike against UPS as a watershed moment in U.S labor history. One of the strike's unusual features was the union's contention that part-time work is an unfair management practice. Indeed, the most noted concession won by the Teamsters was UPS's agreement to convert 10,000 part-time workers to full-time status.
