The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has released the full text of its tentative national contract agreement with UPS, which details a variety of changes between the parcel delivery giant and roughly 330,000 of its union-represented employees.

The contract’s changes include increases to employee wages, a reduction in the share of deliveries outsourced to the U.S. Postal Service, more Teamsters influence over new technologies like drones and requirements to transition a facility to seven-day delivery operations.

“This agreement continues to reward UPS’s full- and part-time employees with industry-leading pay and benefits while retaining the flexibility we need to stay competitive, serve our customers and keep our business strong,” UPS CEO Carol Tomé said in a statement.

The tentative contract, which local union representatives near unanimously approved Monday, still requires a majority “yes” vote from members to be ratified. If it’s approved, here’s a deeper look at what changes will be in store for UPS.
