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.

COVID-19 Relief for States & Cities

Restoring Retirement Security in 2021
As the COVID-19 relief bill makes its way to the White House for passage, the Teamster View takes a look at a central component of the Teamsters Build Back Stronger platform — the Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021.
Teamsters have rallied around this Act for years because pensions are under attack. The Act would provide immediate protection for multi-employer private pensions currently at risk. This is a huge breakthrough in the war on working people and retirement security! Learn about this and more here.
