UPS, Express logistics and logistics jobs to go on strike
- by admin
UPS is set to take the strike action in the US, where the company operates more than 800 distribution centers and has about 200,000 workers.
The union representing UPS workers in the United States has also called for a strike.
The move comes amid rising tensions over the ongoing trade war between the United Kingdom and the European Union over Brexit.
The strike will affect millions of U.S. workers who rely on UPS for deliveries.
The company has been negotiating a contract with the American Postal Workers Union.
This is the second strike by UPS employees in two weeks, and the first since December.
The UPS workers are expected to walk off the job on Friday and will return to work on Monday.
The action comes amid growing tensions between the European and U.K. trade negotiators, with Britain saying it wants to renegotiate a $1.6 trillion trade deal with the European Commission.
The U.N. has urged the European leaders to avoid a trade war and focus on economic growth.
The dispute has also led to protests across the U.k.
The government is planning to use public anger at the trade dispute to push through an austerity package.
In a statement, Prime Minister Theresa May said the U,K.
government was prepared to act in a manner consistent with the rule of law.
The British government says it has the right to take action in a “robust and robust way” against unfair trade practices.
The trade dispute is not the only issue the U the British government is grappling with.
The UK is grappling also with Brexit.
It is planning a new border post in Northern Ireland, and is threatening to leave the European Free Trade Association.
In the meantime, the government is considering the possibility of pulling out of the bloc altogether.
