UPS, ALEC behind anti-worker laws like Right to Work - Fight Back News Teamster workers demand UPS withdraw from ALEC The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is targeting United Parcel Service (UPS) for their leadership role in the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a corporate policy organization that drafts and pushes anti-worker legislation in state governments. On July 1, the Teamsters’ Package Division announced a public pressure campaign to force UPS to withdraw from ALEC. Many local unions around the country distributed flyers to UPS workers at the warehouse gates detailing ALEC’s support for anti-union, anti-worker laws and drawing the connection to UPS. ALEC was originally founded in 1973 as a right-wing political organization for giant corporations to push their agenda in state governments. They achieved national notoriety under President Ronald Reagan, who placed many ALEC members on task forces to draft policy and laws.
