Workers’ World Today is a free publication that empowers all workers, regardless of social or political affiliations. Distributed throughout New York City, our paper has a mission to educate workers and provide them with relevant information pertinent to the workforce such as workers’ compensation, discrimination on the job, workers’ rights, and more.
Yesterday, dozens of supporters including fellow NYC union members, elected officials and candidates stood with members of Teamsters Local 804 at the UPS facility in Springfield Gardens, supporting ten part-time workers unjustly fired by UPS, including two pregnant women who need healthcare coverage. These essential workers were fired for not working “voluntary” overtime, despite UPS profiting off their labor while these same workers risked their health making sure the public had access to essential goods during the pandemic. Shame on UPS– follow the workers’ fight here on Twitter!
