ATLANTA, July 30, 2007 - UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced it would offer health care benefits to all civil union partners of hourly employees in New Jersey who are covered under collectively bargained union plans. Management and administrative employees in the state already have such benefits.

"Based on an initial legal review when New Jersey's law was enacted, it did not appear that a 'civil union' and 'marriage' were equivalent," noted Allen Hill, UPS's senior vice president for human resources.
