The Teamsters working for shipping giant UPS said a strike is “imminent” after walking away from the bargaining table.
The UPS Teamsters said in a statement late Wednesday it gave UPS a one-week notice Tuesday to “act responsibly and exchange a stronger economic proposal” to more than 340,000 employees of the shipping company.
The Teamsters demanded that UPS delivers its “last, best and final offer” to the union by Friday.
“The largest single-employer strike in American history now appears inevitable,” Teamsters General President Sean O’Brien said in a statement.
