CALL TO ACTION: Sky Chef needs our power!

Join us as we stand with our brothers and sisters, Sky Chef workers, as they fight for a living wage. Informational pickets will be held every Thursday from 3:30pm until 5:30pm and on Fridays from 1pm until 3pm beginning in July at DFW Airport, Terminal D between gates 21-40. Park at Terminal D; they will be wearing red UNITE HERE! Local 23 shirts.

Those union workers, represented nationwide and locally by UNITE HERE!, as well as by Teamsters in other areas, will be holding two informational pickets per week indefinitely and planning a LARGE ACTION on August 13 [BE THERE!]. 

Because they are under the Railway Labor Act, these workers have to be released by the federal government to legally strike—that is why they are limited to informational picketing for now, and it’s also why they need broad public and union support to increase the visibility of their campaign. 

For more info about the plight of these workers, follow this link.

Political & Legislative Action Update: The Butch Lewis Act

Relative to H.R. 397, the Rehabilitation for Multiemployer Pensions Act aka The Butch Lewis Act, the Teamsters Department of Political and Legislation Action released the following information:

“The House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (MA-1) has formally noticed the mark-up of the Rehabilitation for Multiemployer Pensions Act (HR 397) for Wednesday, July 10 at 10:00am ET. Following the mark-up, the committee members will vote on this bill. This is the final step before a full floor vote in the U.S. House of Representatives. You can watch a live stream of the hearing here.

“General President Hoffa sent the attached letter to members of the committee, urging them to pass the bill out of committee. Teamster members and retirees from across the country have made their voices heard in their districts and with calls into congressional offices. This nationally coordinated effort will culminate with a rally at the capitol on Wednesday morning, hosted by the General President to keep the pressure on our congressional members to show leadership on this very important issue.”
