A class action lawsuit has been filed against UPS Supply Chain Solutions, Inc. It alleges failure to lawfully calculate and pay employees wages. More specifically, it alleges that they failed to pay overtime wages, failed to pay minimum wages, failed to provide required meal breaks and rest periods and other violations of the California labor law. This lawsuit is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court, Case No. RIC2000727.
Some suggest that pressure has been put on UPS and a strain on its workforce by the growth of Amazon and other e-commerce companies. Amazon uses contractors and gig economy workers and these workers have much fewer protections.
United Parcel Service Inc. employs 399,000 workers and moves 3 million packages each day.
