"Around the country, rank and file union activists — from teachers to journalists to warehouse workers — have challenged the establishment, who they say is too complacent, too cozy with management, to fight for workers and keep corporations in check."
Thank you to all the members for turning out to the General Membership Meeting. The Executive Board took the oath of office and members were sworn in as Teamsters.
Special thanks to Local 89 President Fred Zuckerman and IBT Vice President Bill Hamilton for standing in solidarity with us.
The new Executive Board assumed office on January 1 and we have hit the ground running. We are looking forward to working with you to build a stronger union.
We are reaching out to stewards and members to tackle the backlog of unresolved grievances. We are asking all stewards and members to provide business agents with copies of filed grievances that are unresolved.
