NY Teamsters for a Democratic Union


UPS workers mobilized actions at over a dozen UPS facilities in New York to kick off their campaign for a stronger contract. TDU activists are gearing up to make sure all 8,000 UPS workers in the New York City area are preparing to fight for the contract issues that matter, and strike if we need to.



UPS is making billions, but delivery drivers and the part-time workers who load the trucks are passing out from exhaustion in dangerous heat waves. Workers are rallying to say they've had enough and demand UPS invest in more jobs, lighter loads, and better ventilation and air conditioning.
