    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.

  • 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.
