A Message from the Secretary-Treasurer - Dave Lucas

 

We again hosted the Annual Retirees Picnic. This event is to honor our Retirees for all that they have given us, like the 40 hour work week, vacations, health benefits, pensions and every other advantage that we enjoy as Union Members. The picnic was attended by approximately 300 Retirees and Active Members. I want to thank all the volunteers and those members that attended. We look forward to your continued support.

We also held our 19th Annual Scholarship Golf Classic. As most of you know, this event was renamed in 2012 to the David Randolph Memorial Scholarship Golf Classic as David was instrumental in the creating and running of this event. David was also a very dedicated Business Agent and cared very much about this Local Union. All proceeds from this event go directly to the children of our Members and grandchildren of our Retirees. I want to thank all of the members that volunteered their time to this event’s success.

Another undertaking I am very excited about is I along with Secretary-Treasurer of Local 1150, approached the International Teamsters Training Department and requested they do a specifically designed training session on organizing. We were very specific on what we wanted to come from this training. I am happy to report that we now have 10 members between the two Locals that are fully trained in what the requirements are to properly go out and organize new members. We need to organize in our traditional industries and we need to go out of our comfort zone and organize in different work places. These ten members will be the start. We plan on holding more training sessions in the future. Watch your bulletin boards and the website for more information.

I am also very proud to announce that the New England Teamsters Pension Fund has appointed me as one of the Union Trustees. I hope to take this opportunity to work with the other Trustees and continue to provide some of the very best pensions to our members. I want to thank them for considering me for this position.

Our Monthly Meetings have started up again and I urge all of you to attend these meetings so you are aware of what is happening in YOUR Union.

As always, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me at the Union Hall or via email.

Fraternally,

Dave Lucas

Secretary-Treasurer

  Current Campaigns  
  • Welcome to Teamster Organizing!

    You've heard it said that the best defense is a good offense. In the war on workers, Teamster Organizing is on the offensive! We're winning power for workers across industries and across North America. Join us!

  • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

    After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

  • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
    More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
    Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

  • UPS Teamsters ratified the National Master UPS Agreement on June 26, 2013. The five-year contract includes increases in wages, health care and pension contributions and many other improvements. Several local Supplements and Riders did not pass, and the union is working through an internal, democratic process to resolve the issues. At UPS Freight, members overwhelmingly approved a new national five-year contract on Jan. 12, 2014. 

  • There are about 350 of us who work at EXAL in Youngstown, Ohio, where we manufacture aluminum bottles for large customers like Budweiser and Coca-Cola. We are uniting with Teamsters Local 377 to improve respect and working conditions at our company. Thank you for following our webpage. Fill in the “Join Our Fight” box below with your information to receive text message updates.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • This is a list of Teamster locals whose members are either on strike or locked out by the employer. We will update this list on a monthly basis.

     

  • In July 2011, the plan to restructure YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) aimed at saving more than 25,000 Teamster freight jobs was successfully completed. The restructuring has saved good Teamster freight jobs. This page is dedicated to providing our YRCW members updates about developments that affect them.

  • Teamsters at Republic Services/Allied Waste have stood together in recent years to fight for strong contracts, including going on strike and supporting their fellow striking workers. Workers continue to fight for strong contracts that include retirement security at the second largest solid waste company. This campaign page is dedicated to those ongoing efforts.
