Speaker Profile

Donell Jefferson

Donell Jefferson works at T-Force, formerly UPS Freight. He is a 15 year Teamster. He was instrumental in the organizing of first Overnight and later UPS Freight. Having been through both campaigns, Donnell knows the intimidation and harassment first hand from supervisors and management when workers try to organize under America's broken labor laws. Now working with the Teamsters Volunteer Organizing Team, Jefferson is a key proponent of building community support for non-union workers, including Amazon workers, with Teamster members and the broader community.
