Restarting the Economy: What warehousing and logistics workers need to know

Warehousing and logistics play a critical role in the supply chain, ensuring essential goods and supplies make it to businesses, front-line organizations and into people’s homes. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant challenges in ensuring there are little to no disruptions; however, as we have seen, this is not always the case. Even the smallest of interruptions can cause bottlenecks to form throughout the chain. Warehouses have seen outbreaks of the virus amongst workers who often work very closely together. These workers, along with truck drivers and couriers, have also seen an intensification of their workloads as employers place increased pressure to make sure shipments and deliveries are being expedited.

Everyone has an important role to play in exposing non-union workers to the benefits of engaging in the process of joining the union. Whether you are a rank and file member, elected leader, or staff, there’s something you can do. The All In! Campaign is meant to encourage everyone to play an active and helpful role in organizing new members and to give you tools and ideas to do so.
