    Latest Labor 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. Why it matters: Put simply, your boss needs you more than you need her. And it might stay that way, at least for some workers, particularly those on the lower end of the wage scale. The big picture: There just aren't as many workers these days, as demographic forces were supercharged by the pandemic… Axios

    May 19, 2022 | CORPORATE GREED | The International Brotherhood of Teamsters released a new report detailing Amazon’s excessive executive compensation, including data that Amazon paid its CEO Andy Jassy $212 million last year, approximately 6,474 times the median Amazon worker. The report called on the company to better compensate its workers and reinstate its COVID-19 paid leave policy. “Andy Jassy inherited a fortune by becoming Amazon’s CEO,” said Sean M. O’Brien, Teamsters General President. “He’s raking in hundreds of millions of dollars with no accountability for the company’s disgusting treatment of its workers.” The release of the report comes as the Teamsters launch a social media campaign highlighting the massive pay discrepancy between Amazon’s executives and its workers. Amazon pays its median full-time U.S. worker about $19 per hour and forces workers to move at a rapid pace that results in twice as many serious worker injuries as at other warehousesTeamsters

     



        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.
