A strike at shipping giant UPS appears to have been averted in the US, after the company reached a tentative deal with the union that represents much of its staff.

The union said the agreement would “set a new standard” for all delivery workers, granting raises, more full-time jobs and “dozens” of new workplace improvements and protections.

It also sets starting pay at $21 per hour for new part-time workers.

UPS called it a “win-win-win” deal.
