A Message to Public Services Teamsters from Division Director Jason Rabinowitz


Since my last update, the IBT Public Services Division (PSD) has been working overtime—and in overdrive—to keep our members safe and to protect their rights on the job. In the face of this national crisis, the Teamsters Union is fighting for members so that no one will lose pay or benefits due to COVID-19: 

The 1.4-million members of the Teamsters Union have been working tirelessly, performing essential services and keeping America safe. Many of our 200,000-plus members are working day and night to serve the public and keep our nation running throughout this unprecedented crisis. 

We are making sure our message is heard loud and clear: we insist all of our members are covered by the proper safety measures and PPE, and that employers must prevent layoffs as well as any loss of pay for members who are unable to work due to COVID-19. In the midst of this unprecedented crisis, I’ve never been more proud to be a Teamster. Together, united as one union, we will beat this and come out stronger than ever.
