    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

     It gives me great pleasure to let you know our Local is as financially sound as it has ever been.  Although the Mergers of Local 669 and 182 into our Local initially caused a bit of a strain, our local has seen its assets grow!

    Good fiscal practices, prudent managerial decisions that have been implemented and teamwork throughout the office have attributed to our Local having current assets at almost $1.9 Million dollars.

    All of these things have allowed us to leverage our financial strength to benefit our members with strong contracts, arbitration procedures, and growing through organizing. We continue to have some of the strongest contracts in our industries with the best wages and language.

    With President Bulgaro’s leadership, a strong financial discipline, proper budgeting, and the team effort we have…. I see great things happening for the future of our local!

  • Right to Work, Wrong for Workers
    Updated On: Feb 22, 2017

    Become Informed, get the facts

    A National Right to Work bill has been introduced in the House. This legislation, H.R. 785, will have real consequences for working men and women across the country. Right to Work laws drive down wages and decrease workplace safety. In states that have enacted Right to Work laws, the impact is clear:

    ·         Average Annual wages are nearly $5,000 lower.

    ·         Workplace death rates are 52% higher.

    ·         The uninsured population is 20% higher.


    Proponents of this legislation claim that it prevents workers from being forced to join a union but this is already the case. Right to Work legislation is really meant to defund the unions in favor of corporate interests.

    In response to H.R. 785, Teamster’s General President Hoffa put out a statement saying, “This legislation does nothing to create jobs, grow the middle class or improve the lives of workers. It’s shameful that members of Congress have chosen to prioritize big business interests over the demands of their constituents. The Teamsters Union is committed to improving the lives of working people by fighting against dangerous right to work.”

    National Right to Work is dangerous for worker safety and ultimately hurts the pocketbooks of American workers. We urge you to reach out to your members of Congress and tell them that they should oppose H.R. 785 and any other attempts to weaken collective bargaining rights.
