Teamsters Local 63 Stands With UFCW

Shortly after the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, representing over 800,000 union workers in Southern California, voted unanimously for sanctions in support of a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) strike, the Executive Board of Teamsters Local 63 expressed their support of the over 60,000 grocery workers who are in contract negotiations with Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions.

Randy Cammack, Secretary-Treasurer for Teamsters Local 63 and President for the Teamsters Joint Council 42, released the following statement:

“Teamsters Local 63 proudly stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at UFCW, who are fighting for the wages and benefits that they deserve. Our communities depend on our grocery workers and there is no reason why they should not benefit from the profits that they help generate for the corporations who they work for.  If UFCW calls for a strike, we strongly encourage every Teamster to respect the picket line.”

UPS Master Agreement Takes Effect Monday April 29th

UPS Master Agreement Takes Effect Monday April 29th After Successful Ratification of Local 243 Rider. The UPS Master Agreement will take effect at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, April 29, after workers in Michigan ratified the last outstanding supplemental agreement (Local 243 Rider) by a margin of 70%.

The national contract will increase wages, protect benefits and create thousands of new full-time jobs. Economic improvements in the contract are retroactive to August 1, 2018. The company has been notified of the ratification and will attempt to implement required raises during the next weekly pay period.

The UPS contract includes wage increases of $4.15 per hour for both full-time and part-time workers over the term of the contract and increases the part-time start rate by $2.50 retroactively to August 1, 2018. All full-time and part-time UPS Teamsters will continue to receive health insurance for the member and their family without paying premiums. The agreement also strengthens grievance enforcement for harassment with a sitting arbitrator and monetary penalties, and a new procedure to make it easier to get on or off the overtime list.

The agreement requires UPS to create 5,000 new full-time jobs during the term of the agreement, including a minimum of 2,000 Article 43 driver jobs, and a new combination driver classification that addresses the changes brought on through the e-commerce revolution.

Teamsters Celebrate Women's History Month

The Teamsters Union celebrates Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. Every year, we commemorate Women’s History Month in March, and March 8 marks International Women’s Day. The theme of International Women’s Day in 2019 is “Balance for Better,” because a more gender-balanced world is a better world. This is a time to reflect on women’s accomplishments in our union and communities at large.
Often it’s Mother Jones or Rosie the Riveter who come to mind when we think about strong women in labor history. However, there are many more accomplished women, including Teamsters, who work every day to fight for workers’ rights. These are women who resist, press forward, lead and bring about social and economic justice. They are deserving of our respect and gratitude not just in March, but throughout the year.
Looking back to the history of our union, over a century ago, women were organizing with the Teamsters. In 1916, the union was involved in a contract for women laundry workers in Chicago, helping the workers successfully organize and create the first all-women negotiating committee. They achieved equal pay for black and white women working in the laundries.
In 1919, “equal pay for all” was a slogan within the union. The Teamsters Union has been and will continue to be a champion for equal pay, negotiating gender and color-blind contracts. Women in unions are more likely to have access to paid leave, health benefits and a secure retirement. Women of all demographics fare better economically with union representation. In 2017, union women’s median weekly earnings were $200 more than nonunion women’s.
As we honor our history, Teamsters look to the future. At the annual Teamsters Women’s Conference in Orlando in September, more than a thousand Teamsters gathered at the event whose theme was, “Dream. Believe. Achieve.” Thanks to the vision of our sisters, all Teamsters can achieve great things together for our union as we strive to uplift all workers.
The Teamsters Union is proud to honor Women’s History Month.
