Felicia the Fatcat spent the entire week at Foster Avenue sending a message to UPS management.
Together, Local 804 members protested harassment, rallied against the company's unfair labor practices, spoke out against racist comments made by supervisors, and fought back against management's targeting of Black stewards.
Our union joined forces with social justice organizations and took our issues to the media.
This company has serious issues to address. We will hold them accountable.
Local 804 and all Teamsters stand with the family of George Floyd.
We stand together in denouncing institutional racism and discrimination in any form. We stand together in insisting that police brutality stop and the officers in question be brought to justice.
One of the basic tenets we insist on and practice as a union is dignity and respect. That goes for both the workplace and in daily life.
