Overview
Excellent book If you're the least bit interested in the lengthy and nefarious relationship between the Teamsters and UPS, this book covers it all. I'm embarrassed that I've worked for more than a quarter century for UPS and been a Teamster for just as long and didn't know half of the stuff that's uncovered, exposed, and revealed in The Package King -Rob Atkinson, veteran UPS and Teamster activist The Package King's step by step narrative of how major changes in the Teamsters and in labor history can and did happen, should serve as an example to any young militants entering the trade union movement today. Anyone interested in taking on the rich and powerful on the shop floors of the 21st century should download and read this book. -Guy Miller, In These Times His new book The Package King: A Rank and File History of United Parcel Service which was revelatory to me on a number of levels. "Oh, hell, you may say, I know what United Parcel Service is"-and that's what I thought, and know you don't is the answer -Rick Kogan, "After Hours with Rick Kogan," WGN Radio The Package King is a wonderful look at over a century of capitalism, its transformations, and the rank and file militancy, and peaks and troughs that have characterized the U.S. labour movement of the last 100 years. It is also a call to activists to get serious about analyzing the modern logistics system and how to think about how to build worker power within it. -Gerard Di Trolio, rankandfile.ca This is a marvelous alternative history of UPS, written from the point of view of the people who do the actual work. Joe Allen unpacks a prime example of working life in our era. That sense of alienation you feel? It's not you. It's capitalism. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a better understanding of what lies beneath the brutal ugliness in our economy, and a glimpse into how we can fight back. -Brian Noe, customer review
