At the 30th International Convention, Teamsters from all levels of the union—the International Union, Joint Councils and local unions—voted to pass an historic resolution on Amazon.
The resolution sets forth a unified approach to mobilizing the union and engaging Teamster members. It resolves to maintain standards in Teamster core industries against the threat posed by Amazon and support Amazon workers as they build power across the country.
In accordance with Article 33 of the UPS National Contract there will be Cost of Living Adustment (COLA) raise this year of 33 cents per hour (.8250 cents per mile for mileage pay). The raise will take effect August 1 for all members who have achieved seniority and have completed their progression.
A new market-rate adjustment (MRA) leaves behind Teamster brothers and sisters and pits union workers against each other. Local 623 will fight this tooth and nail. We have some "creative" ideas for what comes next if the Company continues to REFUSE to do the right thing.
Happy Mothers Day TEAMSTER MOMS!
Today, we want to show you some Union appreciation for Mothers’ Day. This morning the Teamster Women's Caucus was set up at each worksite with flowers and other goodies and we will be out again from 4:30-6:30 PM at PHL and Oregon Ave.
