Stop the War on Workers

April 4, 2011: Teamsters and other workers rallied today in a National Day of Action to stop the War on Workers and support our union rights.

On this day in 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King gave his life to defend the right to bargain, to vote and for justice for all workers. He was in Memphis, supporting the striking garbage workers.

Corporate America and anti-union politicians have our union rights in their sights. Today, thousands of Teamsters and other members stood up. Read their stories below:
