    Fighting UPS, the ‘Package King’ - In These Times

    In addition to telling the story of how UPS did its part in taming that recalcitrant workforce, The Package King also tells the story of the treacherous role the bureaucratic leadership of the IBT played in aiding and abetting that project. More inspiringly, it tells the story of the insurgency of the rank and file inside the Teamsters union. Allen chronicles how that insurgency eventually took power from the old leadership and led the union in a textbook strike, only to see the old guard bureaucracy reestablish itself.
