Dear Labor Activists and Brothers and Sisters of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters,
We are the staff organizers of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and are proud of the work we do daily by helping the unorganized worker form a union in their workplace to gain dignity, respect and job security.
We find it ironic that we don't have those same benefits that a unionized worker would have such as a voice in the workplace or the right to bargain collectively. Nor do we have representation and due process with access to the grievance procedure. We aspire to be just cause employees instead of “at will” employees. We want your support to achieve the ability to collectively bargain in our own bargaining unit.
While Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act affords protection for concerted activity we’ll need you to watch our employer who could disrupt our efforts as is very common during an organizing drive.
The National Labor Relations Act states that employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid and protection.
We hope your support will encourage our employer to practice what they preach and that you are prepared to help hold them accountable with regards to our rights in organizing ourselves and getting them to bargain in good faith.
"Those who would destroy or further limit the rights of organized labor - those who cripple collective bargaining or prevent organization of the unorganized - do a disservice to the cause of democracy."
By signing our petition, you demonstrate your support for our rights and to encourage others to do the same. We’ll be sharing our story with others. We commend you in your courage of standing with us and wish us the best of luck in obtaining a first contract.
