    May 25, 2023 | ORGANIZING | When the Amazon Labor Union (ALU) first submitted union authorization cards, “we had to withdraw and file again,” recalled organizing committee member Justine Medina, “because Amazon challenged over one thousand of our signatures, saying they no longer worked there.” The sky-high turnover at the eight-thousand-worker fulfillment center on New York’s Staten Island made collecting cards “a race against Amazon firing everyone,” she said. Amazon has an annual turnover of 150 percent. […] Despite the churn, at Amazon, in charter schools, in restaurants, and among student workers, unions are developing strategies to organize high-turnover workplaces. Jacobin
    May 23, 2023 | PACKAGE INDUSTRY | […] There are millions of families like the Rays who have swapped store visits for doorstep deliveries in recent years, meaning that contentious labor negotiations now underway at UPS could become vastly more disruptive than the last time it happened in 1997, when a scrappy upstart called became a public company. UPS delivers millions more packages every day than it did just five years ago and its 350,000 unionized workers, represented by the Teamsters, still seethe about a contract they feel was forced on them in 2018. In an environment of energized labor movements and lingering resentment among UPS workers, the Teamsters are expected to dig in, with the potential to cow a major logistical force in the U.S. ABC News

    May 18, 2023 | STRIKES | As the busy summer travel season approaches, 25,000 union pilots at two of the nation’s largest commercial airlines — American and Southwest — are taxiing on the runway of a potential strike. Last week, the Allied Pilots Association (APA), which represents 15,000 pilots at American Airlines, announced that its members had voted overwhelmingly to authorize a work stoppage. Signaling their unity, thousands of uniformed APA members held informational pickets on May Day at ten of the nation’s major airports, including Chicago’s O’Hare and Boston’s Logan. “With more than 99% of participating pilots voting in favor of authorizing a strike, our pilots’ resolve is unmistakable,” said Capt. Ed Sicher, APA president. “We will not be deterred from our goal of an industry-leading contract.” In These Times
    May 16, 2023 | ORGANIZING | Two weeks ago, a group of drivers working for an Amazon Delivery Service Partner (DSP) became the first unionized drivers in the company’s network of contractors when they ratified a union contract with the Teamsters. The ratification also confirmed the Teamsters’ first direct bargaining contact within Amazon’s vast web of workers, something the union has been working towards for some time. [...] To its credit, the owner of the DSP, Battle-Tested Strategies (BTS), voluntarily recognized the union and signed the collective bargaining agreement almost immediately. The problem? Amazon did not. It said that because the drivers were contracted by BTS, Amazon was not their employer and therefore would not have to come to the bargaining table. The union’s next step is proving that wrong. Vice  GETTY IMAGE
