UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters reached a tentative agreement to reduce the size of SurePost packages eligible for delivery by the U.S. Postal Service, according to the union.

UPS’ SurePost uses the U.S. Postal Service for the final mile of delivery and is focused on non-urgent and lightweight residential shipments. Under the tentative deal, the overall size of packages eligible for SurePost delivery will be reduced, Teamsters spokesperson Kara Deniz said in an email Friday, but she did not provide specifics.

“These tentative commitments from UPS would increasingly redirect more SurePost packages to bargaining unit regular package car drivers over the life of the contract,” Deniz said.

UPS declined to comment. The agreement is subject to ratification of the next national contract, which the company and the union are currently negotiating.
