Teamsters File Cal/OSHA Complaint Against Container ConnectionContainer Connection is putting drivers’ lives at risk. The company is willfully violating the law by misclassifying drivers as independent contractors and refusing to provide them the protections they need to survive.
Director: Ron Herrera
Ports in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico are the economic engines of regional economies employing hundreds of thousands of workers. Ninety-five percent of the goods imported to our countries flow through our ports. Teamsters are among the best-paid port workers. Our jobs include truck driving, warehousing, stevedoring, operating and repairing ferries and tugs, and building ships. Our division is also committed to organizing the unorganized. Owner-drivers hauling intermodal containers are the most exploited truck drivers. We will harness Teamster power to secure good union contracts for these brothers and sisters.
