At the 30th Convention of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, delegates passed a resolution to commit to mobilizing and organizing to "do whatever it takes" to win a strong contract with UPS.
Teamster delegates voted to eliminate the “2/3 rule” that was used to impose the 2018 UPS contract on Teamsters against their majority vote. This is a big win for union democracy and for rebuilding the Teamsters union.
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.
