NY Teamsters for a Democratic Union

NY Teamsters for a Democratic is organizing Teamsters to launch workplace campaigns, win stronger contracts, build stronger, more inclusive local unions and ally with other movements to win social, economic and racial justice.


UPS WORKERS LAUNCH CONTRACT CAMPAIGN

TDU activists helped mobilize actions at over a dozen UPS facilities in New York to kick off the campaign for a stronger contract at UPS. We're 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. TDU members helped rally workers across the City to say they've had enough and demand UPS invest in more jobs, lighter loads, and better ventilation and air conditioning.
