The Teamster Convention approved a resolution to fight to win Martin Luther King Day as a paid holiday in all Teamster contracts. Today, local unions and rank-and-file activists are turning that resolution into action. 

Members and their local unions leafleted, collected petition signatures, and held parking lot meetings and rallies in more than 40 locations. 

UPS Teamsters are demanding an end to two-tier pay for drivers, more full-time jobs, and living wages for part-timers and all Teamsters. 

The national Day of Action on MLK Day was announced by Sean O’Brien and the newly-elected O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United leadership team.
