Freedom Road Socialist Organization to hold online forum on the tentative agreement between the Teamsters and UPS

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On Sunday, August 13 at 3 p.m. Pacific time (4 p.m. Mountain / 5 p.m. Central / 6 p.m. Eastern), Freedom Road Socialist Organization will be hosting an online event entitled “Class Struggle Unionism and the Tentative Agreement at UPS” featuring rank-and-file Teamsters, some of whom are FRSO members. 

“Thanks to the efforts of militants in the rank and file of the Teamsters, we have turned the page on the Hoffa-era concessions,” said Richard Blake, a member of Teamsters Local 512, “This time we organized a real contract campaign, mobilizing the rank and file, and established a credible strike threat, leading to real gains. The company watched thousands of Teamsters across the country come out for practice pickets and meetings, and it scared them.”

In a recent statement on the tentative agreement from the organization’s Labor Commission, Freedom Road Socialist Organization wrote that “many of our members throughout the country are rank-and-file Teamsters. We have helped to build this contract fight in centers, hubs, and on the road. We are proud of the level of militancy and organization that the rank and file contributed to allow IBT leadership to be bold at the table and provide the first credible strike threat in decades. The Teamsters threatened to essentially shut down the U.S. economy, and the capitalist class bowed down.”

Members of the Teamsters will now vote on whether to accept the tentative agreement. Results of the vote will be released in late August.
