This morning we received a Memorandum of Understanding negotiated between the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and UPS on a nationwide level.
This memorandum guarantees up to 10 days of paid sick leave for those who are directly impacted by COVID-19 as follows:
"(1) Employee is diagnosed with COVID-19 or is required by government, public health official, doctor, or UPS to be quarantined.
(2) Employee's immediate family member who resides in the same household is diagnosed with COVID-19 and is thus forced to quarantine."
There are additional details outlined in the MOU, which is attached to this post, as well as an agreement between the IBT and UPS to continually re-evaluate the MOU in the event that further action is needed.
We thank the IBT and UPS for coming to this important agreement to address a critical issue facing UPS Teamster members during the COVID-19 outbreak, and look forward to further cooperation as the situation develops.
