The Labor Wire
Last year marked the biggest surge in collective action in decades. One month into 2019, working people already are carrying that momentum forward—and preparing to lead an even stronger movement for justice on the job.
A Month of Collective Action
From Washington to communities across the country, working people this month mobilized to end a pointless, 35-day government shutdown. By marching and rallying together, we proved to be a force that even the White House couldn’t ignore.
Meanwhile, more than 30,000 teachers in Los Angeles won a historic strike to secure better pay, smaller class sizes and more school funding. Now, our brothers and sisters in Colorado, Virginia and West Virginia are waging their own fight in defense of our public schools.
Not to be outdone, SAG-AFTRA members have joined together in a union-wide strike against BBH, a global advertising agency attempting to illegally walk away from a mutually agreed upon contract.
Whether we’re facing off against a billionaire school superintendent, a greedy ad executive or the president of the United States, working people have the power to win a better life for ourselves. When we stand together through collective action, the future is ours to build.
Recently Local 776 President Ed Thompson had the pleasure of touring the UPS Hub in Harrisburg with State Senator Bob Casey, Jr. UPS Labor Relations Manager Darren Prey had invited Senator Casey to UPS so he could meet and talk with the drivers before they began their deliveries and asked Ed to be present. Darren gave Senator Casey and Ed a tour of the facility where the delivery vehicles were being loaded prior to the drivers starting their day. Senator Casey talked about the then government shut down in Washington and the effect it was having nationwide, the importance of Unions, and organizing. Afterwards Senator Casey and Ed attended the driver’s morning safety meeting for the East and West Shore Centers before the drivers left to start their deliveries.
