US faces biggest strike EVER

If the workers walk off the job, it will be the first time since 1997 that the business has done so.

Even though its package delivery drivers already earn up to $95,000 per year, the US is facing its largest strike in history as 350,000 UPS employees demand better working conditions.

On July 31, 2023, UPS's contract is set to expire, and 350,000 of its 534,000 employees are anticipated to walk off the job to demand better working conditions.

They want better pay and benefits, as well as air conditioning in the back of trucks.

The average yearly salary for UPS drivers is $95,000, and they also get an additional $50,000 in benefits.

The company's median salary, at around $44,000, is still considerably higher than that of FedEx and Amazon, its main rivals.

UPS is the only carrier with the capacity to handle 21.5 million packages per day and is in charge of about 6% of the GDP of the country.

The largest strike in US history will take place as 350,000 UPS employees walk out in protest for better working conditions, despite the fact that delivery drivers already make over $95,000 annually.

On July 31, 2023, UPS's contract is set to expire, and 350,000 of its 534,000 employees are anticipated to walk off the job to demand better working conditions.

According to reports, UPS' maximum pay exceeds that of other carriers by $6 to $14 per hour, with a cap of $38 in New Jersey, where Laos commutes.
