Teamsters Launch Massive Effort to Unionize Amazon


Amazon Teamsters’ picket line is spreading nationwide. Workers across the country are standing up to Amazon after the company fired 84 drivers for unionizing with the Teamsters.

Amazon, the nation’s largest single employer, represents the Mount Everest for the modern labor union movement.

Smaller unions have worked to organize the mega-monolith, but Amazon’s sheer size has a bigger force eyeing it as well. Enter the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

The Teamsters made their first successful foray into unionizing Amazon, winning a union contract for 84 workers in Southern California in May, 2023. Amazon fired all 84 workers shortly after.

The workers were subcontracted through an Amazon Delivery Partner (DSP) called Battle-Tested Strategies (BTS).

The Teamsters’ picket began in California and continues to grow every week.

Workers are fighting back, setting up a clash between one of America’s biggest unions and largest employers.
