Randy Korgan is a thirty-year Teamster who first became involved in the Labor Movement by volunteering his time as an organizer with the Teamsters Union at the age of twenty-one.
Since then, he has helped thousands organize, mobilize, and achieve bargaining rights. He accomplished this by spending countless hours with brave men and women all over Southern California — in their living rooms or on a picket line — to bring workers toward victory. Korgan currently serves as the Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 1932 and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters National Director for Amazon.
Never being afraid of hard work, at eleven years of age, he and his brother had to throw papers every day for the Sun Telegram and Fontana Herald on three routes to help pay the family bills at home. His relentless drive comes from never forgetting the struggles of those who’ve had it worse and respecting the power they used to act for change. Since first joining the Teamsters as a Stater Bros warehouse worker in 1990, Korgan has worked to protect and improve standards for working families all across the Inland Empire.
One of his fondest moments comes from a deep respect for the Civil Rights Movement, leading a campaign to register over 700 people to vote in less than 8 hours, following up with nearly 500 votes by mail that made the difference in a highly contested Congressional election.
Over the course of his career, Korgan has inspired thousands of workers to fight through education and grassroots mobilization by creating comprehensive training programs throughout the Region, Western United States, and the Country. This training program and all organizing campaigns organized by Korgan are founded on militant worker power. That only happens when we put out a helping hand to lift each other up — that’s what makes America great.
