MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – The Canada Council of Teamsters has ratified a new collective agreement with UPS Canada. This new five-year agreement covers more than 9,000 employees across the country.

The provisions of the new five-year contract have an effective date retroactive to August 1, 2020 and will extend through July 31, 2025.

“This agreement provides continued stability to both our employees and customers for the next 5 years,” says Dominic Porporino, president of UPS Canada.

“At a time when so many Canadians are relying on supply chains for essential goods, ratification shows our employees’ commitment to continue to serve our customers, and rewards them with enhancements to their compensation and benefits.”

The new contract provides wage increases, along with enhancements to the company funded Defined Benefit Pension plan.

UPS entered the Canadian market on February 28, 1975. Over the past four decades, it has expanded to approximately 12,000 employees serving Canada from coast-to-coast.  Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, UPS Canada operates a delivery fleet of over 3,000 (package cars, tractors, trailers and shifters) of which more than 41 percent run on alternative fuels.
