UPS Pilots to announce strike vote Friday

This Friday, October 23 at approximately 10:30 a.m. EDT the Independent Pilots Association (UPS pilots) said it will release the results of its strike authorization vote.

IPA members are being asked to authorize a pilot strike against United Parcel Service.

If approved, the five-pilot executive board of the Independent Pilots Association will have the authority to formally request a release from federally mediated negotiations with UPS, and the discretion to conduct a strike once mediation is concluded. UPS and its pilots began negotiating in August 2011.

The strike ballot opened on October 1 and will close at 10:00 a.m. on October 23.
