The International Teamsters Union published a notice on its website on Sept. 29 to recruit volunteer drivers from across the United States to help transport supplies in Puerto Rico. It states, “the labor movement is working on the ground in Puerto Rico to bring volunteers to meet specific needs.”
The notice cited here asks for a lot more than truck drivers ("Additionally, the Teamsters Freight, Airline, Passenger Transport, Package, Public Services and Waste Divisions are contacting Teamster employers that operate in Puerto Rico and our local unions throughout the United States and Canada to identify avenues of support and volunteers.").
It also specifically notes that it's currently unclear if there are adequate trucks, fuel, and operable roads available: "At this time, it is unclear if there are trucks available to move the containers, fuel to operate the trucks or road access to the distribution centers. However, the labor movement is working on the ground in Puerto Rico to bring volunteers to meet specific needs."
