In one of the largest union struggles in years, nearly 200,000 UPS workers nationwide went out on strike yesterday, crippling the country’s largest package-delivery company.

However, if you tried to find out what the strike is about in much of the media, you might have a hard time.

Guests:
• Anne Marie O’Neill, a part-time UPS worker on the pre-load shift at a UPS center in Eastern Long Island, New York.
• Dave Pratt, a former UPS loader and an organizer for Teamster’s for a Democratic Union, a rank and file reform organization.
