UPS Teamsters Not Impacted By Company Decision To Eliminate Spousal Coverage

(Washington, D.C.) – UPS announced yesterday a change in its health care coverage for spouses of nonunion employees. Going forward, UPS will not cover spouses of nonunion employees who are eligible for employer coverage at their workplace. This decision does not impact the health care coverage of Teamsters at UPS.

The recently approved national agreement moves more than 140,000 UPS Teamsters from the UPS company plan to TeamCare, ensuring that Teamster member’s health care benefits are protected for the full five years of the contract.
