Teamsters Claim Victory

— NPR's Jim Zarroli reports that the Teamsters' strike looks like it ended with a victory for the union...and perhaps for the labor movement as a whole. U-P-S conceded to most of the workers' demands. The popular support the Teamsters enjoyed may inspire a resurgence in the labor movement. But U-P-S was particularly vulnerable and the union's success may not translate to other disputes.
