Teamsters Win Hunts Point Strike
Teamsters Local 202 members voted this morning to approve their new union contract with the largest raises in the history of their bargaining unit. Over 97% of workers voted in favor.
The win caps a week-long strike that went viral online and gained support across the city and country. After several peaceful strikers were arrested on the picket line on Martin Luther King Day, hundreds of New Yorkers joined the Teamsters on the picket line through the rest of the strike.
