The Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America stand in solidarity with Ramp and Tug workers on strike against DHL Express at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). 1,100 members of Teamsters Local 100 are on strike during the company’s busiest time - the holidays - citing unfair labor practices and a refusal to meet with workers at the bargaining table. DSA joins the thousands of Teamsters members across the nation to stand with DHL CVG workers on strike!
In a press release written by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Ryan Doyen, Local 100 member and ramp agent at CVG said, “Our unfair labor practice strike was necessary because DHL treats us like we are pieces of equipment. At the end of the day, we are human beings, and we deserve respect in our workplace.” (Source)
We support the demands of our fellow workers and will always support the rights of workers, in this strike and in all strikes to come. The members of DSA Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky stand in solidarity with workers across the globe, and with workers on strike here in our city.
