    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe! Our Local has had a lot of challenges this past year and one thing I have learned is that Local 294 Teamsters know how to fight the good fight! I was fortunate to be witness to these “fighters”… members who keep our union strong by stepping out of their daily routine to support their coworkers… many times this year. I am talking about our shop stewards and member leaders who understand that our strength is in our unity and solidarity. These are the members who choose to lead, learn, and stand up for fairness at work. They sit through contract negotiations, dispel anti-union misinformation, and constantly organize their peers for strength. They just seem to inherently know that the next generation of workers depend on today’s Teamsters to keep our union strong … just as we depended on the Teamsters that came before us. Think about it for a moment, every place of employment, at one point, had no union. Workers had to fight to change how things were. They risked their jobs and their families' livelihoods to stand together as one. They demanded that their right to negotiate with the employer for wages, working conditions, and benefits be recognized, and they won their fight. We cannot forget these fights. It is important that we all recognize the hard work and dedication of members who step up and become advocates of our union. This keeps us strong and moves us forward. We cannot forget that we stand on the shoulders of our predecessors and it is our duty to preserve, protect and build upon their efforts.

  • XPO Bargaining Update
    Updated On: Feb 10, 2022

    Teamsters Local 294 made good progress at a "meet and greet" with XPO contract negotiators on December 16, a lead up to the start of negotiations on January 25-26.

    "We're pleased with the progress we made at this 'meet and greet,' but we recognize that this is early in the process, and we still have a long way to go," said John Bulgaro, President of Local 294. "However, we hope to build on the momentum we have and continue to move forward to address the XPO workers' issues. We also look forward to having DSR's (Driver Sales Reps) participate in the negotiations."

    Progress was made in the following areas:

    * Interim grievance and arbitration procedure for discipline/discharge

    * Attendance records for all current Albany DSRs shall be reset to zero points

    * Information request submitted for all past camera violations with further discussion forthcoming on points previously assessed to DSRs.
