    Apr. 14, 2021 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | [...] Despite the valiant efforts of the workers, Amazon — which has more resources than nearly any company in the world — was able to blunt their momentum through its anti-union campaign…. But this is hardly the last word on organizing Amazon. Going forward, we are likely to see more unions joining in the effort to organize Amazon. The Teamsters have already begun building rank and file awareness with its UPS membership about the threat that Amazon poses to its contract standards with the hope that members will assist a broad campaign. It’s already resulted in local unions hearing from Amazon workers interested in joining… In These Times
    Apr. 14, 2021 | LABOR LAW | What has sharp teeth, bloodshot eyes, festering nails, looms twelve feet tall, but doesn’t look mean enough to be threatening? Though it might seem like an unlikely subject of cutting-edge labor and constitutional law, the union’s inflatable rat balloon called Scabby has been at the center of these disputes for over a decade. Scabby has survived lawsuits, injunctions, unfair labor practice accusations, and even friendly fire. But Scabby faced its biggest threat yet when President Trump’s General Counsel Peter Robb set his sights on the rat in 2017. Though Robb allegedly “wanted the rat dead,” Scabby managed to stay alive. How has Scabby survived the anti-union legal climate for so long? And who cares?… On Labor

    Apr. 13, 2021 | COVID-19 | The Teamsters understand what is at stake when it comes to combatting the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Teamsters have been working on the front lines during the pandemic, keeping our communities safe and our economy moving. The union is doing all it can to not only deliver the COVID-19 vaccine, but to create opportunities for members to be vaccinated as well. And those efforts are not lost on elected officials, who are noticing and giving thanks to the union… Teamsters

    Apr. 9, 2021 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Workers at the Amazon plant in Bessemer, Alabama have voted against unionizing, dealing a major defeat to labor organizers hoping for a galvanizing victory in the South. The final vote tally: 1,798 against unionizing versus 738 in favor of union. About 500 challenged ballots were not counted, according to the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, with most challenges coming from Amazon. Those disputed ballots are not enough to change the results. The union says it will object to the results with the National Labor Relations Board and said Amazon intimidated and coerced workers into voting no. “Our system is broken and Amazon took full advantage of that”… WBHM


    NOTICE TO MEMBERS: Because public health concerns related to COVID-19 require us to balance staff safety with member access to Local Union staff, we have instituted new office schedules and procedures. Click here for the latest information.

    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.

    We want to take the time to reach out to you, our brothers and sisters — and your families as we continue to go through very challenging times with the coronavirus pandemic. We know you still have many questions and concerns during these unprecedented times. While the uncertainty can be stressful and unsettling, we believe we will get through these times together and emerge stronger than before. If you need additional information about the coronavirus, please do not hesitate to call the Local Office. We will continue to look for ways to assist and support you during this difficult time. Stay safe, stay well, stay strong — and stay informed!
