We’re back for 2019 covering key lessons from the UPS-Teamsters contract battle, the continued wave of teachers strikes, how to organize your coworkers and build union power on the shop floor, and the direction of the U.S. labor movement. We recorded in Riverside Park so expect some background noise.
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.
