    Nov. 27, 2023 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Amazon workers in multiple countries went on strike for Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, to protest the e-commerce giant’s labor practices. The strike is organized by the UNI Global Union, which represents workers around the world, and said it has mobilized workers from more than 30 countries, including Italy, Germany and the U.S., to speak out against Amazon’s treatment of employees. The effort is part of the “Make Amazon Pay” campaign, which has organized strikes for the past four years. Christy Hoffman, general secretary of UNI Global Union, said workers around the world are “standing up to Make Amazon Pay.” Jessie Moreno, an Amazon Teamsters member from Local 396 in California, said she and other workers “are on strike against Amazon’s unfair labor practices.” “ We have taken our picket line across the country, and now we’re joining our colleagues from around the world to demand respect, fair wages, and a workplace where our health and safety are a priority,” Moreno said in a statement. “Amazon is no match for the power of its workers united.” The Hill
    Nov. 22, 2023 | U.S. LABOR UNIONS | Nearly 900,000 Americans sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner this week will have unions – and the double-digit pay increases they won – to thank. That’s how many unionized workers have won immediate pay hikes of 10% or more in just the last year, according to an analysis by CNN. And the pace of increases of that size has been picking up. More than 700,000 of those workers won pay hikes over the course of the last six months, and of that group, nearly 300,000 saw deals reached in just the last six weeks. “I would say this is the best run of wage increases won by labor since the period right after the end of World War II,” said Art Wheaton, director of labor studies at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations in Buffalo.

    Nov. 21, 2023 | U.S. LABOR | Workers from Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis ratified new contracts with hefty wage hikes, their union announced Monday, closing the books on a historic autoworkers strike at the three Detroit giants. Members of the United Auto Workers voted 64 percent across the three companies in support of the contracts, said a UAW press release marking the official conclusion of the first-ever simultaneous stoppage at the three companies. "The members have spoken. After years of cutbacks, months of our Stand Up campaign, and weeks on the picket line, we have turned the tide for the American autoworker," said UAW President Shawn Fain. "The Stand Up Strike was just the beginning," Fain added. "Now, we take our strike muscle and our fighting spirit to the rest of the industries we represent, and to millions of non-union workers ready to Stand Up and fight for a better way of life." MENAFN
    Nov. 20, 2023 | VIEWPOINT | […] This time, union leaders fed on their members’ dismay to stage unusually combative, in-your-face contract campaigns that produced results. During the Teamsters contract campaign, Teamsters president Sean O’Brien helped bury a legacy of passive bargaining by a union ridden by decades of scandal and corruption. There was no sweet-talking from O’Brien months before contract talks started. For the autoworkers, President Shawn Fain’s theme was more visceral and basic. It was a designed strategy to signal a new era. But, even with the major wins and string of successful strikes across the country, U.S. labor still faces daunting challenges. Two of the most pressing questions in labor right now are: How can the movement build on its current momentum, and what more can workers and unions do to rise up in the nation’s workplaces?

        Since 1910, the well-known Teamster logo
        has consisted of two horses' heads,
        representing the complementary forces of
    strength inherent in the Teamster organization.
        The horses' names are Thunder and Lightning; 
        Thunder is male and Lightning is female.

        Members = Power

        Local 570 members and their representatives
        negotiate wages, benefits, and job security,
        resolve grievances and secure health and

        because, as a union, they have a seat at the
        table with their employers.
