Jason Rabinowitz is the principal officer of Teamsters Local 2010 with decades of experience in protecting the rights of workers. Since coming to the Local in 2013, Jason has led the charge in building our Union into a powerhouse for workers’ rights in California, taking us from 29% membership to over 80% for the first time in Union history. Under his leadership, we have created an effective stewards program, conducted a powerful contract campaign culminating in successful strikes, won strong contracts with guaranteed raises for our membership, and organized thousands of new members into the Teamsters.
Before coming to Local 2010, Jason served as a Teamster lawyer for 16 years. His success in winning justice for workers in challenging cases made him one of the preeminent Union lawyers in California. For four years, Jason served as a Professor of Labor Law at UC Davis Law School. Jason became Executive Director of Teamsters Local 2010 in 2013 and was elected Secretary-Treasurer and Principal Officer in 2014. The members re-elected him to his position in 2016.
