The Most Consequential Election You’ve Never Heard Of
The fight to unionize Amazon and win a fair contract for UPS workers hinges on this election you probably haven’t heard of.
One of the largest unions in the U.S. and Canada, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, is holding an election to vote in new leadership. The outgoing president James Hoffa, Jr., is stepping down after more than 20 years at the helm. Whoever leads the union into next year will take on the challenge of the Teamsters’ push to organize Amazon workers and gain back membership in a difficult landscape.
More Perfect Union interviewed the two candidates for president Steve Vairma and Sean O’Brien, as well as Teamster members who are turning out to support each slate.
