With just a week until 350,000 Teamster workers could strike at UPS, we want to share with as many listeners as possible our great interview with several rank and file UPS workers. So we are unlocking it for everyone to hear!

The biggest labor story of the year has been the ongoing negotiations between UPS and the Teamsters and the possibility of 350,000 workers launching the biggest strike in the US in decades. So we’re thrilled this week to be joined by three rank and file UPS workers from Teamsters Local 41 in Kansas City to talk about it. Stewards Scott, Shaine, and Ben cover the conditions facing full time package car drivers, 22.4 “hybrid” drivers, and part time workers and the fight to improve them. We discuss the tactics used to build the unity that prompted 97% of UPS Teamsters to authorize a strike, how listeners can support their local Teamsters before and during a strike, and how we can build on that solidarity to revitalize the labor movement for the future.
