Dr. King Understood the Power of Unions
01/20/20 - Teamsters local 570
Jan. 20, 2020 | ACTIVISM | In what would have been his 91st birthday, we celebrate the towering legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—his moral force as a faith leader, his devotion to nonviolent resistance and, of course, the sacrifices he made to end legalized segregation in the South. But there is an often-overlooked aspect of his work: Dr.

Martin Luther King Remembered
01/20/20 - Teamsters Local 492
On the night before he died, Martin Luther King gave a speech about the dignity of labor. It still rings true. He was in Memphis, Tenn., supporting sanitation workers' rights to respect and a decent wage. He said: “Whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity and it has worth.” Dr.

Trump, America's Biggest Troll
01/19/20 - Pennsylvania Federation BMWED-IBT
NO Friend of Workers... NO Friend of Unions... NO Friend of Railroads... How or Why some would support this troll is unimaginable. When it comes to wowing workers, Donald Trump is an absolute magician. Through some mysterious sorcery, he has convinced millions of American workers that he is their true friend, fighting hard for them, even though he and his appointees have taken one anti-worker action after another—dozens of them.

The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa
01/17/20 - Pennsylvania Federation BMWED-IBT
The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa By David Macaray | CounterPunch | Following is an article from one of our favorite magazine journals, CounterPunch, a periodical chocked with deep-seated investigative reporting that speaks to progressive politics and civil liberties. Lately there has been so much hype surrounding the the life and death of Jimmy Hoffa. The Martin Scorsese Netflix movie “The Irishman” attempts to chart the events of the day Hoffa disappeared in a way that you somehow yield to them not as a flight of fancy but as the reconstruction of an established truth. This author felt necessary to put facts into perspective, removing Scorsese’s glamorization of one-time Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa and identifying the union and it’s leadership for what it was - corrupt, anti-democratic and dirty.

It’s Time for Lawmakers to Acknowledge Workers Are Struggling
01/17/20 - Teamsters local 570
Jan. 17, 2020 | FAIR WAGES | There rightfully has been a lot of focus recently on the need for good-paying jobs. We wrote about it last week in this space and will again right now. Why? Because it is important to counter the narrative being pushed by some that everything is going just great for workers. Interest in the topic certainly goes beyond the Teamster Nation Blog.
