    Feb. 3, 2023 | SUPREME COURT | Joe Oliveira and his co-workers relied greatly on donations of food and gift cards after going on an unfair labor practice strike against multibillion-dollar specialty steelmaker ATI in 2021. They cut household expenses to the bone, burned through their savings despite the public’s generous support of their cause, and held fundraisers to help one another cover mortgages and car payments during 3½ months on the picket line. As much as the strike tested workers, however, it pressured ATI even more and ultimately enabled Oliveira and more than 1,300 other members of the United Steelworkers (USW) to secure long-overdue raises and stave off the company’s attempt to gut benefits. Corporations so fear this kind of worker power that they’re asking the U.S. Supreme Court to rig the scales and help them kill future strikes before they even begin. Daily Kos
    Feb. 2, 2023 | HEALTH & SAFETY | The U.S. workplace safety regulator has again cited Amazon.com Inc for placing warehouse workers at risk of serious injuries by imposing onerous production quotas. The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said inspections at Amazon warehouses in New York, Colorado, and Idaho found that workers faced a higher risk of lower back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders. OSHA said the risk to workers resulted from frequently lifting heavy packages and working long hours to fulfill quotas. Reuters
    Feb. 2, 2023 | BLACK HISTORY MONTH | (Click image to enlarge) The organizer of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech was also the leader of the first successful black labor union. For A. Philip Randolph [pictured third from left], labor and civil rights were one and the same. The influential twentieth-century labor and civil rights leader would no doubt have mixed feelings about the state of labor in the United States today. On the one hand, union density has declined precipitously over the last half-century, from roughly one-third to one-tenth of all workers. On the other hand, there’s been an upsurge in union organizing in recent years, particularly among black and brown workers. As the leader of the first successful black labor union, the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, Randolph was committed to organizing black workers, particularly at a time when many unions excluded African Americans.

    Jan. 30, 2023 | LABOR HISTORY | [...] Chávez and the United Farm Workers union he led recognized in the 1960s what was happening — long before most other Americans did. They started blowing the whistle on how the chemical industry and agribusiness manipulated the idea of scientific uncertainty to continue selling pesticides they knew were dangerous. The UFW’s crusade against toxins like DDT — its 1972 ban was a milestone in U.S. agriculture that marked the beginning of a decade of bans — revealed how activists could triumph over big business and make American life safer.

        Members = Power

        Local 570 members and their representatives
        negotiate wages, benefits, and job security,
        resolve grievances and secure health and
        safety protections during a pandemic
        because, as a union, they have a seat at the
        table with their employers.


        Did You Know?

        Since 1910, the well-known Teamster logo

    strength inherent in the Teamster organization.
        The horses' names are Thunder and Lightning; 
        Thunder is male and Lightning is female.
