TDU Welcomes New UPS Freight Teamsters

May 1, 2008: Nearly 10,000 new Teamsters have joined our union this year at UPS Freight. That’s an important step forward for our union’s power in freight and at UPS.

“I would like to welcome the UPS Freight workers to our union. Please do not stop at just joining. Our union power does not come only by signing a card. As members of the rank and file, you must stay involved in your union. Educate yourself on your contract and also how our union works. Hold our leaders accountable for decisions they make. Together we are the union.”
Nichele Fulmore, UPS Package Car

“It took a lot of effort and commitment by many freight Teamsters, but we finally got UPS Freight workers into our union. I applaud all my fellow Teamsters who, like me, worked to get this done. I also hold out a hardy handshake to all our new brothers and sisters from UPS Freight. We need each other if we’re going to bring our union back to the power and prestige we once knew. Let’s work together and make it happen.”
Jimmy Rickert, Roadway Road Driver

Dr. King understood the ties between labor rights and civil rights. He gave his life while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He spoke firmly against right-to-work laws, saying that “in our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.”
