Brothers and Sisters,

Here it is. The 5 things you have to know affecting the California Labor Movement!

First Unionized Amazon Drivers on Strike (and Need Your Help!)

Eighty-four drivers and dispatchers at Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner BTS in Palmdale, CA, organized with the Teamsters in April and negotiated a collective bargaining agreement that raises pay to $30 per hour and guarantees their right to refuse unsafe work. Despite the absolute control it wields over working conditions and over the contractor BTS, Amazon has refused to recognize or honor the union contract. Instead, Amazon has engaged in dozens of unfair labor practices in violation of federal labor law.

In Palmdale, summer temperatures regularly exceed 100 degrees. To work safely in that heat, workers need reduced quotas, plenty of water, and access to cool spaces to rest. But for years, Amazon has refused to even fix the air conditioning in their vans and rationed how many bottles of water the workers can take on their routes. The workers also have to deliver packages on unsafe, unpaved roads or to homes with aggressive dogs.

These workers are not backing down in the face of Amazon’s threats, but they need financial support so they can continue to take care of their families as they fight back against Amazon. Can you make a donation to support these brave workers?

Organize California Institute Coming to a Location Near You

As you may know we are doubling down on building organizing capacity in California’s labor movement. One of the ways we are doing it is by holding 3-day Organizing Trainings in communities throughout California. We had a very successful Institute and Drive in San Diego in February. We will be in Oakland later this week and in August 18-20, we will be bringing the OCI to the Inland Empire! If you or your union is interested in participating in the Inland Empire training (or a future one near you) please register here or email

Hot Labor Summer Is On!

The Writers Guild has been on the picket line for 7 weeks, SAG-AFTRA voted overwhelmingly (97%) to strike if necessary, Teamster UPS drivers also delivered a 97% strike authorization vote if their contract is not settled this coming month, UNITE HERE Local 11 hotel workers in Los Angeles authorized a strike at 100 properties this summer, and SEIU LOCAL 1000 is escalating their actions for a fair contract.

In every industry, every union, we are seeing workers saying enough is enough to wages that can’t pay the bills and bosses who have profited off their hard work. And the world is taking notice. You can read stories about all the bubbling labor activity here or here. See you on the picket line!

Julie Su Does It Again! (Now confirm her already!)

No one in the California worker movement needs to be reminded why Julie Su is the most qualified candidate we may have ever had for US Labor Secretary. Her decades of work in the Golden State are beyond comparison. But, as Acting Secretary of Labor, she showed us once more. She helped mediate a contract between the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association. Her incredible work helped avoid a shutdown of our California Ports and will keep Port workers on the job. Now, we are patiently awaiting her confirmation.

In Solidarity,

Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher

Rare Footage Shows 'Invisible' Nuclear Bomber Flying in California

Footage has emerged of the first reported flight of the U.S. Air Force's new nuclear stealth bomber.

The Northrop Grumman B-21 "Raider" was captured on video flying outside an aircraft manufacturing plant in Palmdale, California, on Friday. The test flight comes less than a year after the Raider was introduced to the public and less than a month after it was seen carrying out taxi tests on a runway.

On its website, the U.S. Department of Defense wrote the B-21 Raider "is expected to serve within a larger family of systems for conventional long-range strike, including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; electronic attack; communication; and other capabilities."

The Pentagon noted the design of the nuclear-capable aircraft allows it to be manned or operated remotely, and it is capable of employing "a broad mix of stand-off and direct-attack munitions."

Perhaps most notable about the B-21 Raider is that it's considered a "stealth" aircraft, which are often referred to as being "invisible" due to the bombers being hard for adversaries to detect on radar.

Reuters reported there are six test B-21s in production now, and the Air Force is expected to buy at least 100 of the aircraft to replace B-1 and B-2 bombers.

The Raider's maiden flight on Friday was not announced by the Air Force, but spectators on the ground captured it in the air and posted images and videos on social media.

Among those that recorded the Raider was Matt Hartman, a freelance photojournalist, who posted a clip on X (formerly Twitter) of the B-21 soaring overhead.

Moshe Schwartz, a reporter for the website Yeshiva World News, also posted a clip on X of the B-21 flying near Palmdale.

"The B-21 Raider is in flight testing," Ann Stefanek, a U.S. Air Force spokesperson, told Newsweek in a statement. "Flight testing is a critical step in the test campaign managed by the Air Force Test Center and 412th Test Wing's B-21 Combined Test Force to provide survivable, long-range, penetrating strike capabilities to deter aggression and strategic attacks against the United States, allies, and partners.

Newsweek reached out to Northrop Grumman via email for further comment.

When the Raider was unveiled in a December 2022 ceremony, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin delivered remarks about the new bomber.

"It can handle anything from gathering intel to battle management to integrating with our allies and partners," Austin said. "And it will work seamlessly across domains, and theaters, and across the joint force."

Speaking about the Raider's stealth capabilities, the defense secretary said that "fifty years of advances in low-observable technology have gone into this aircraft, and even the most sophisticated air-defense systems will struggle to detect a B-21 in the sky."

Austin added: "The B-21's edge will last for decades to come."

Update 11/13/23 11:40 p.m. ET: This story has been updated to include a statement from a spokesperson for the U.S. Air Force.

Trader Joe’s to build massive distribution center in Palmdale

Trader Joe’s will begin construction later this year on a 1 million-square-foot food assembly and distribution center in Palmdale that’s expected to employ 800 to 1,000 workers.The 104-acre project site, at the southeast corner of Avenue M and 10th St. West, will include three buildings — an 827,000-square-foot “hub” building, a 211,000-square-foot freezer facility and a 6,000-square-foot accessory building.Construction of the 1.03-million-square-foot logistics center is scheduled to begin in Decem...

Trader Joe’s will begin construction later this year on a 1 million-square-foot food assembly and distribution center in Palmdale that’s expected to employ 800 to 1,000 workers.

The 104-acre project site, at the southeast corner of Avenue M and 10th St. West, will include three buildings — an 827,000-square-foot “hub” building, a 211,000-square-foot freezer facility and a 6,000-square-foot accessory building.

Construction of the 1.03-million-square-foot logistics center is scheduled to begin in December and be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024. It will support Trader Joe’s stores throughout Southern California.

The city included several conditions of approval for the project, including the widening of Avenue M and 10th St. West, construction of a sidewalk, curb and gutter, installation of a 12-foot bike path along Avenue M and 10th St. West and the installation of traffic signals at the 14 freeway/Ave M off ramps.

The project, which gained Planning Commission approval at a January 2022 meeting, lies within the Antelope Valley Business Park Specific Plan and is covered under the plan’s Environmental Impact Report, which was approved in 1992.

“We are thrilled that Trader Joe’s has selected Palmdale as a destination to expand their business with their new food assembly and distribution facility,” Mayor Laura Bettencourt said in a statement.

Bettencourt said the project aligns with the city’s “commitment to economic vitality, innovation and job creation,” and will likely spur additional industrial development in Palmdale. It will also bring more property tax revenue to the city.

City officials said it will be Trader Joe’s first distribution center in Los Angeles County and the company’s largest logistics facility in California. The company operates additional distribution facilities in Fontana and Stockton.

Representatives with the Monrovia-based retail chain could not be reached to comment on the cost of the project, but the city placed its value — counting construction and improvements — at more than $150 million.

City Councilman Austin Bishop said the new jobs will be welcome, as the region has more than 70,000 commuters who often make their way into Los Angeles and surrounding areas on clogged freeways.

“The idea of providing opportunities for our residents to work closer to home and spend less time commuting so they can free up their time to spend with family contributes to the overall well-being of our community,” he said.

Trader Joe’s didn’t say what jobs will be available at the new facility or what the wages will be. But data from show packers at Trader Joe’s warehouses in California average $18.33 an hour, while forklift operators make $18.96 an hour and order pickers average $23.93.

The Trader Joe’s distribution complex will be Palmdale’s third largest facility, behind Northrop and Lockheed’s operations at Air Force Plant 42, city officials said.

The project will also include a 12.2-acre Joshua tree preservation area. Placards will be placed at various locations surrounding the area to identify western Joshua trees with information concerning the importance of their conservation.

Founded in 1967 in the L.A. area, Trader Joe’s has since expanded to include more than 500 stores in 42 states and Washington, D.C.
