Stop the War on Workers at UPS

April 4, 2011: Local 804 Teamsters rallied in front of UPS in Manhattan today to say NO to the War on Workers from Wisconsin to UPS.

Members came together to show their support with public employees who are fighting to save their collective bargaining rights. But they were also taking a stand to defend their own rights.

UPS made $5.8 billion in profits last year. But that hasn’t stopped management from using the recessions as an excuse to eliminate full-time jobs and walk all over the contract.

“People died for the rights we have thanks to collective bargaining,” said Local 804 President Tim Sylvester. “Corporate America is trying to strip our rights away. We’re uniting today across the country to say no,” Sylvester said.
