    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.

  • CDL TRAINING

    Teamsters Local 294 CDL Training School

    Our CDL training is supported in part from grants we receive on a year to year basis. We want to thank the NYS Department of Labor and the Workforce Development Institute (24 Fourth Street, Troy, NY 12180) for their Grants in recent years. Without their support our training would be minimal. Teamsters Local 294 Training School was licensed by the Commissioner of New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, in September of 1999. Local 294's Executive Board and Instructors are committed to providing our members and their families with a comprehensive commercial driving program for Teamsters by Teamsters. Our focus is to educate our brothers and sisters to give them the ability and confidence necessary to upgrade their skills to further their careers, while providing the industry with the best trained drivers available. By the nature of our program, students will also learn a bit of Teamster history and to understand the goals of our union. As students develop the driving skills necessary for the CDL class A road test they also get more intimately aware of union officials, duties, and facts versus myths about our union. We feel this education is second to none when you compare us to other driving schools. The knowledge you will gain about the union is a bonus you won't get anywhere else. We encourage anyone interested in Class A driving to call and get on the waiting list.

    Call (518)489-5436 for more information.
