    Hoffa Scholarship 2018

    The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded $1.4 million in scholarship
    awards to students in the U.S. and Canada this year. For the first time this included scholarships
    to assist with students attending training and vocational programs. Assisting the sons, daughters
    and financial dependents of Teamster members with their educational goals is a tradition
    that we are proud to continue.

    This year the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund decided to have International
    Scholarship and Tuition Service (ISTS) administer the academic and vocational program
    awards for the Fund. ISTS is an experienced administrator for college scholarship funds across
    the country.

    The Fund’s website, www.jrhmsf.org , will continue to have the most up-to-date information
    about the online application for the Academic and Training and Vocational Programs
    scholarships. The application process for the programs is now open and we encourage the sons,
    daughters and financial dependents of members to apply.

    Sincerely,

    The Board of the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund

    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!

    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.
