With both sides still not returning to the bargaining table, the industry remains on edge as the July 31 deadline approaches.
While there is little news related to a resolution to the dispute, UPS is taking a more proactive approach to communicating with its customers.
UPS published this announcement on Friday. UPS starts business continuity training (click to read).
Most relevant from the communication is the statement, “Over the coming weeks, many of our U.S. employees will participate in training that would help them safely serve our customers if there is a labor disruption. This temporary plan has no effect on current operations and the industry-leading service our people continue to provide for our customers. This training is aligned with our ongoing commitment to safety and business continuity.”
