    Aug. 5, 2021 | LABOR UNIONS | In a statement today, Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa said: “Today, the entire labor movement lost a true champion for working men and women. Richard Trumka was a friend, a colleague, and my brother in the fight for workers’ rights in America. Throughout his outstanding career, Rich’s tireless work and dedication improved the lives of millions of union members and he will be remembered as one of the greatest labor leaders of our generation. On behalf of the Teamsters Union, I offer our deepest condolences to Rich’s family during this difficult time. He will be missed.” 
    Aug. 4, 2021 | FAIR ELECTIONS | The purpose of elections is to have the American public vote. But many states are trying to put rules in place that would curtail participation. Something must be done. And this week in the nation’s capital, elected officials from all over the country came to let Congress know it is time to act. Lawmakers from nearly 30 states descended on Washington to tell those on Capitol Hill that federal intervention is necessary. They joined many of their colleagues from Texas, who evacuated the Lone Star State late last month to block Republican legislators there from putting in place voting restrictions that would make it harder to vote. There is a Teamster-backed solution before Congress that could halt such efforts from being undertaken nationally – the For the People Act. And it is badly needed. As we explained… Teamsters
    Aug. 3, 2021 | LABOR LAW | Update: Hearing officer recommends new election.  The National Labor Relations Board has determined that Amazon violated labor law after workers at its Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse tried to join a union, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Workers Union said Monday. Workers at the Alabama warehouse voted against forming a union in April. Representatives of the union immediately challenged the outcome on the grounds that Amazon engaged in illegal interference with employees’ votes to discourage them from unionizing. The director who presided over the NLRB hearing will recommend whether a new election is conducted… NBC News
    Aug. 2, 2021 | JOBS | […] As America embarks on a historic modernization of roads, bridges, water systems, airports, schools, manufacturing facilities, and other infrastructure, it’s essential that the nation’s highly skilled union workers supply the raw materials and parts as well as the labor for these publicly funded projects. Union workers will deliver infrastructure that’s safe to use and built to last. Congress just needs to ensure they have the opportunity to put those skills to use, and that means including domestic procurement requirements in legislation implementing President Joe Biden’s infrastructure program… Nation of Change

    The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act last year, but anti-worker legislators in the Senate blocked it. Undeterred, working people fought to elect pro-worker lawmakers to the Senate, House and White House. And we won. The House passed the PRO Act for a second time on March 9, 2021, sending the bill to the U.S. Senate. If it passes, it would: Empower workers to organize and bargain; hold corporations accountable for union-busting; and repeal “right to work” laws which were created during the Jim Crow era to keep White and Black workers from organizing together. Lawmakers gave us their word they would make the PRO Act a top priority. It’s time for them to keep that promise. Stronger unions mean higher wages, safer working conditions and dignity for all people who work. The #PROAct is our first step to get there.

    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, female.

    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.
