Lil' progress in the air at UPS
Pilots who fly for UPS may be going on strike, starting October 1. The 2,600 pilots who are represented by the Independent Pilots Association (IPA) have been negotiating since 2011 on a fair wage and retirement package. Federal mediators joined the bargaining in 2014, but little progress has been made. The pilots are looking for a deal that is on par or better than the one that Fed Ex pilots received earlier this year.
