    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    Every three to five years or so, the International, in Washington, sends an Internal Auditor out to each Local to do an extensive review to ensure there are no improper expenditures, failures to obtain approvals or other  violations  of  the  union’s  bylaws  and/or  the International Constitution. In the early spring, we endured our regular review and I am happy to report, overall it was very successful.

    The audit made me think about my position as Secretary-Treasurer over the last five years and thinking back, I have to admit, that in 2015, when I experienced my first Internal Audit as Secretary- Treasurer, I was a little nervous…. Not because I feared we were doing anything wrong, but more of a fear of the unknown. What did the audit involve? Was I going to be able to answer questions about the work of my predecessors? …etc. That first audit was long and arduous, but a great learning experience overall that tremendously prepared me for our  most recent audit.

    I learned the importance of maintaining good records with good back up documentation and I learned the importance of keeping the Board involved    in many decisions and discussions regarding our financial situation and where to  go  moving  forward.  The  Secretary-Treasurer’s  function  is  the  union’s administrative backbone. And for me, doing the job right is absolutely essential — not only because of the legal requirements concerning accounting, taxes and reporting, but also because it maintains our integrity  and financial health.

    I do, however, view the role of Secretary-Treasurer as much more than just “keeping track of the money”. While the title of “treasurer” clearly conveys my financial responsibilities, meeting with and working for you, our  members, and understanding your needs and how they are intertwined with the overall mission of our organization, is absolutely an essential part of being a good treasurer.

    I just wanted to take the time to let you know that the Secretary-Treasurer position of this Local is an important responsibility that I do not take for granted and I am honored to be able to serve.

    Sept. 24, 2020 | Economic Inequality Costs Average Worker $42,000 Annually
    09/24/20 - Teamsters Local 355
    Sept. 24, 2020 | OPINION | Economic inequality is one of those hazy concepts that can mean lots of different things to people. But take note members of Congress, here’s a number that all of your constituents will understand: $42,000. That’s how much more money the typical full-time, prime-age working person would make if we wiped away the economic inequality of the past four decades.
