How can working people transform America for the better? Throughout the Inland Empire in Southern California, working people are coming together for change. The Teamster View podcast is a new podcast produced by Teamsters Local 1932 to help both members and non-members stay connected to the issues that drive us and the movement we’re building together. Program hosted by Mario Vasquez and Teamsters Local 1932 Secretary-Treasurer Randy Korgan.
San Bernardino County Contract Ratification
Your San Bernardino Countty Bargaining Team has worked dilengtly to secure the most lucrative union contract county employees have ever had. Their relentless commitment to your collective interests has resulted in some truly remarkable highlights within this agreement which you will hear about in this podcast.
Healthcare County Rate Update
In this episode we talk about how the County has released the 2023 to 2024 medical rates for its plans and what it means for our members.
Bargaining units throughout the County have seen significant reductions in how much the medical plans cost over the last four years since we last bargained for the MOU, and the County’s rate should be alarming to you and your family. Still, the announcement of these rates is premature.
That is why the Teamsters Local 1932 Health and Welfare fund Trustees have decided to postpone establishing rates until negotiations have concluded, so members of the Trust will see rates will stay the same until bargaining has ended and we can identify how much the county is willing to commit to your behalf.
Would You Strike for Affordable Healthcare?
Have you noticed our new billboard on our local freeway asking this question? Health care is considered affordable if a household can pay for estimated annual premiums and out-of-pocket spending without cutting into spending for other necessities. But how much is too much?
This week, on the Teamster View Podcast, Secretary-Treasurer Randy Korgan explains the importance of affordable healthcare and why he asked the general public whether they would be willing to strike for it. This is a must-listen for Teamsters Local 1932 members at the County of San Bernardino, who are set to begin negotiations for a new union contract in the coming weeks.
Amazon Workers Walkout in San Bernardino
On Monday, August 15th, 150 Amazon employees at the company’s air hub in San Bernardino abandoned their workstations mid-shift over low wages and concerns regarding heat safety. Together they demand a $5 pay raise and safer working conditions.
The coordinated work stoppage in San Bernardino is the culmination of months of organizing by these workers. This episode of the Teamster View dives deep into what their courageous action means for Amazon workers building power here at home and throughout the country.
