Support the Verizon Strikers

Forty thousand union members on the East Coast are on strike against Verizon. Here’s how you can support them, including honoring their picket lines. 


Teamsters at UPS, in freight and at UPS Freight have the right under our contracts to honor any primary picket line.

If you see a primary picket line at a Verizon location, you do not have to make a delivery there.

UPS drivers can enter “strike” on their DIAD board and bring the delivery back to your center at the end of the day.

Many Teamsters who work under local contracts have the right to honor picket lines too—especially if you have a concern about your safety.

If you’re affected by the Verizon strike or any other picket line, check your contract or call your local.

The bottom line is: Teamsters don’t cross picket lines!
