Drivers at NFI/Cal Cartage in Southern California walked off the job protesting unfair labor practices this week. Workers have been fighting misclassification, wage theft, intimidation and retaliation on the job for years. This is the fourth strike to take place at NFI/Cal Cartage.
September 11, 2001, was a day like no other in our nation’s history, but Teamsters reacted with characteristic solidarity. The union’s leadership and rank-and-file members stepped up and assisted with the rescue, recovery, cleanup and rebuilding.
Today, the Freedom Tower stands where the World Trade Center once stood, and Teamsters were as essential to building it as they were in the cleanup and recovery efforts immediately after Sept. 11, 2001.
An overwhelming majority of Teamsters voted this week to ratify a new four-year contract with the County of San Bernardino in California. After nearly a year of bargaining, Local 1932 was able to secure a strong contract with significant increases in take-home pay for County workers.
The increases in take-home pay are based on fair across-the-board raises, substantial improvements to employer contributions in health insurance premiums, and merit advancement reform that will help members progress through steps in half as much time as before. The contract covers 11,000 members.
An overwhelming majority of the Teamster members working at carhaul Jack Cooper have approved the company's Last, Best and Final Offer.
On Thursday, August 29, by a vote of 117 to 25, workers at the intermodal rail transportation Parsec in Austell, Georgia voted to join Local 728.

The American labor movement is responsible for many things we take for granted—the weekend, the 40-hour work week and anti-child labor laws to name a few.
