About The Teamster Rebel

The Teamster Rebel will be a print and online newsletter written by and for rank and file Teamsters across Texas. Our publication aims to connect union brothers and sisters across divisions of employers, crafts, locals, and regions -- to share our triumphs and challenges in the daily battles on the shop floor, and to offer a platform for fellow Teamsters who submit letters, articles, pictures, and videos.

Our editorial board currently includes parcel drivers, package loaders, and truck drivers -- and we aim to add others representing Teamster jobs like bus drivers, brewery workers, and more. Unfortunately, none of us possess the skills of creating websites, doing newsletter layout, graphic design, or (eventually) podcasting. All Patreon funding will go to those who assist us with these tasks as well as the eventual printing costs (from a union shop, of course). Our writing and editing will be done on a strictly volunteer basis.

Oh, and why The Teamster Rebel? First, the name evokes one of the most significant events in the history of our union, the Teamster Rebellion of 1934 in Minneapolis. Second, it is a tribute to one of the most widely distributed independent, class struggle-oriented newspapers in Texas, The Rebel, published in Hallettsville, Texas between 1911 and 1917.

We deeply appreciate whatever you can contribute to help us develop this organizing and educational tool for the tens of thousands of Teamsters in Texas.
