United Parcel Service (UPS) Strike - Collection Finding Aid



This collection consists of records related to the August 1997 strike at United Parcel Service (UPS). The strike lasted 15 days, and the repercussions of the work stoppage were felt worldwide with thousands of packages failing to reach their destinations. The central issue of the strike revolved around the widespread use of part-time employees by UPS. In the five-year contract agreed to between the Teamsters and UPS, provisions were made for 10,000 new full-time jobs. Though President Clinton initially refused to intervene, administration officials sat in on negotiations and encouraged both sides to stay at the negotiating table. This collection consists of correspondence, newspaper articles, memoranda, fact sheets, graphs, lists, email, handwritten notes, and reports.
