LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Local UPS employees overwhelmingly voted "no" to a proposed regional contract.

Teamsters Local 89 voted down the regional proposal by a count of 488 to 3,580, but the Central Region Supplement was approved by the majority of local unions 11,599 to 10,006.

The national contract was approved earlier this year - but local workers weren't happy with it.

Local 89 representatives say their main problem with the current deal has to do with healthcare and its increasing cost.

UPS officials told WDRB earlier this week that a "no" vote should not affect holiday shipping.
