Amazon Crushed the Alabama Union Drive – Can the Teamsters Do Better?
Posted On: Jun 24, 2021
June 24, 2021 | BUILDING WORKER POWER | The Teamsters is rich, strong, and experienced – and it’s ready to help workers and give Amazon a headache. The announcement that the Teamsters – one of America’s most powerful unions – is going to mount an ambitious campaign to unionize Amazon warehouses across the US presents the e-retailing colossus with a far bigger threat than the recent effort to unionize an Amazon warehouse in Alabama ever did…The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, with 1.3 million members, is a far larger, richer, stronger union than the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU) and has a century of experience mobilizing and unionizing warehouse workers. Not only that, the Teamsters will mount drives in many places where unions are popular and powerful and arguably have a home-court advantage – think California, New York, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, and Washington state. In confronting the Teamsters, Amazon will no doubt feel it’s being plunged into a never-ending, head-to-head competition against an Olympic-caliber opponent… The Guardian
