UPS’s Teamsters-represented employees are the largest private sector bargaining unit in the U.S., having grown from 100,000 to about 330,000 in the last 25 years, even as overall Teamsters’ membership declined.

Upward mobility
UPS provides employees with career pathways - not just jobs.

Many UPSers begin part-time and then apply for full-time slots once they have learned the skills and proven themselves - similar to an apprenticeship system.

More than 18,000 employees (55%) of our employees in management started in union positions.
