Teamsters Take On Amazon

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has thrown down the gauntlet in the fight to unionize Amazon. Delegates to the Teamsters’ 30th International Convention voted to approve a resolution calling for an all-encompassing campaign to mobilize and organize Amazon workers across the US. The resolution does not go into any specifics as to how this campaign will function but generally calls for a “unified approach” to helping Amazon workers achieve a union contract and commits all members to take on this endeavor. What will this campaign look like? And what are the stakes for workers in this fight? Host Monica Cruz speaks with Randy Korgan, the Teamsters National Director for Amazon.



Wait! we need your help!

BreakThrough News is building the media arm of the movement. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.

Think to yourself, is this article something that would be published anywhere other than BreakThrough?

Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.

Working-class people deserve better, we deserve media for and by us. We are not funded by billionaires or corporations – we are funded by you. Without you, BreakThrough would not be possible, so become a member and build the media arm of the movement with us.
