Averted UPS Strike & CA Bill Aimed at Making Striking Workers Eligible for Unemployment Benefits

August 25, 2023 (1 min read)

New UPS Labor Contract Averts Strike

The union that represents over 300,000 UPS workers ratified a new labor agreement last week, preventing a strike that might have crippled the U.S. economy. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters said the contract will increase the wages of current workers by at least $7.50 per hour, increase the minimum pay for part-time employees from less than $17 per hour to $21 per hour, and raise the maximum rate for full-time delivery drivers to an average of about $49.

CA Weighs Allowing Striking Workers to Collect Unemployment Benefits

With Hollywood virtually shut down by actor and screenwriter strikes, California lawmakers are considering a bill (SB 799) that would make striking workers eligible to receive unemployment benefits. The measure could give workers in the state more incentive to go on strike and more flexibility to extend a walkout. (NEW YORK TIMES, STATE NET)
