Listen to this special episode of the Teamster Nation Podcast addressing the coronavirus outbreak, where Teamster staff lets members know what they are doing to help members stem both illness and economic loss. Plus a look at the special challenges going on the Healthcare and Solid Waste and Recycling divisions during this challenging time.
As one of the largest divisions in the Teamsters Union, the Warehouse Division has been working with our local unions in the Grocery and Broadline industries during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Teamsters UPS and UPS Freight National Negotiating Committees and UPS have reached an agreement to protect members at UPS and UPS Freight who may be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As the U.S. combats the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), Teamsters throughout the country have been on the frontlines serving their communities. Throughout every division and in every local, Teamster members are hard at work for the greater good—ensuring that essential items are being transported and in stock, hospitals are up and running, and that our streets are kept clean and safe.
The coronavirus pandemic has upended daily life and commerce throughout the United States in recent weeks. The waste and recycling industry's essential services continue, but for frontline workers it is no longer business as usual.
With more and more states ordering the closure of restaurants as coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, our members working at broadline food distributors are facing severe economic hardship.
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has requested for the CEOs at Republic Services, Inc., Waste Management, Inc. and Waste Connections to provide employees with adequate next steps for ensuring the health and safety of Teamster members as they continue serving communities during this public health crisis.
Teamsters members are critical to health care, working in hospitals, nursing homes and health care facilities, including the American Red Cross, where over 1,300 Teamsters are employed.
