Sen. Natalie Toro

“This bargaining agreement is an example to employers and workers everywhere – with good faith efforts, it’s possible to find common ground without having to compromise on worker’s rights and benefits.

“UPS workers provide a critical service to our communities and they are part of our social infrastructure. This bargaining agreement has helped avert a strike, preventing the loss of billions to our economy, while improving overall working conditions and compensation for union members.

“Workers are the backbone of our society and we must always find ways to protect them, expand their rights and bargaining power, and pay them decent living wages.”
