Teamster Solidarity Helps Kick-Out Verizon Strikebreakers

Verizon strikebreakers have been thrown out of three New York City hotels thanks to direct action by striking CWA members, solidarity from the hotel workers’ union and Teamsters Local 814.

When CWA members found out that Verizon was dispatching strikebreakers out of midtown hotels, the strikers mounted massive picket lines in front of the Sheraton, Renaissance and Westin hotels in Manhattan.

The Teamster Local 814 mascot—Scabby the inflatable rat—joined the strikers on the picket line. The New York Hotel Trades Council backed the strikers too and promised to honor their picket lines.

The hotels cancelled Verizon’s rooms and tossed the strikebreakers to the curb.

UPS Part-Time Workers Continue the Fight for $15

It's been a busy time for the End Part-Time Poverty at UPS Campaign.

Part-Time UPS workers mobilized delegations to rally and pressure state officials in Albany as part of the push to win $15 an hour. The actions with the Fight for $15 movement paid off when New York joined California earlier this month to raise the minimum wage to $15.

In New York, the victory means wage increase for 3 million workers, including UPS part-timers who start at $10 an hour.

“We weren’t ready to give up on the fight for higher part-time pay just because Hoffa and Hall sold us out in the contract. So we linked our Campaign to End Part-Time Poverty at UPS with the Fight for $15,” said Lennox James, a UPS part-timer and End Part-Time Poverty activist in New York Local 804.

The fight continues. In New York, the timeline for the wage increases differs by region, meaning some workers will be making more than others who do the same job. The End Part-Time Poverty at UPS campaign and Fight for $15 will continue to mobilize to win a guaranteed $15 minimum wage for all workers across the country.
