    May 26, 2022 | U.S. LABOR UNIONS | […] If the nation’s big unions and their leaders are serious about having the labor movement grow again, they need to realize that this is an unusually promising moment, that there’s huge energy right in front of them. The big unions have the money and resources to help the new youth-driven movement expand rapidly. If the big unions don’t jump in and help, then all their grandiose talk about reversing labor’s slide will ring hollow. This is the most promising moment for unions in decades, and if the big unions don’t come off the sidelines and help the youth-driven moment grow, they will have themselves to blame if labor’s decline continues.

    May 26, 2022 | ORGANIZING | Video game workers at a division of game publisher Activision Blizzard have voted to unionize, creating the first labor union at a large U.S. video game company. A count of ballots on Monday revealed the results of the election affecting a small group of Wisconsin-based quality assurance testers at Activision Blizzard’s Raven Software, which develops the popular Call of Duty game franchise. The tally was 19-3. The unionization campaign by employees at Raven’s office in Middleton, Wisconsin, was part of a broader internal shakeup at Activision Blizzard, a Santa Monica, California-based gaming giant with roughly 10,000 employees worldwide. The game publisher — which Microsoft is in the process of buying for nearly $69 billion — has been under intense public scrutiny since California's civil rights agency sued it last year over an alleged “frat boy” culture that discriminated against women… ABC News
    May 23, 2022 | WORKERS' RIGHTS | American workers have the upper hand over their employers right now — and there are tentative signs it could last, even as economic storm clouds gather.

        Did You Know?

        Since 1910, the Teamster logo has consisted of
        two horses' heads, representing the
        complementary forces of strength inherent in
        the Teamster organization. A well-known
        emblem, most people recognize it but are
        unsure of the story behind it. 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
        safety protections during a pandemic
        because, as a union, they have a seat at the
        table with their employers.
