Dave & Dustin interview Fred Zuckerman, president of Teamsters Local 89 and last year’s Teamsters United candidate for General President, on the Worker Power Hour. We talk everything Teamsters – the UPS contract fight, the pension crisis, organizing Amazon, hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, and taking a stand against white supremacists.
We also interview Kas Schwerdtfeger, package car driver and Teamsters Local 344 shop steward, about the new Amazon Key delivery program and the future of the Teamsters.
Part 1 of our two-part Worker Power Hour special at the Teamsters for a Democratic Union convention in Chicago.
The squad assembles to talk about Colin Kaepernick’s grievance against the NFL, Richard Spencer’s disastrous speech at UF, the upcoming UPS contract fight, why the Fraternal Order of Police isn’t a real union, the terrible Blade Runner sequel, and to shout out the Chapo Trap House podcast.
