TO ALL MEMBERS OF TEAMSTERS LOCAL 671:
On behalf of our Staff, the Executive Board, and Business Agents, I would like to wish all of you and your families a Happy and Safe New Year.
As you all know, our Local just recently experienced an election for Union Officers and Business Agents that will serve as your representatives for the next three years. As a 47-year Teamster and 28-year Officer of this great Local, I feel that our newly elected Executive Board and Business Agents are a true representation of the diverseness of our membership. Your newly elected Executive Board consists of youth, experience, diversity, and most of all dedication. I have been a part of many Executive Boards and I am proud to say that this one has the greatest potential of all that I have been a part of.
We have many goals, organizing new members, maintaining, improving, expanding health care for all, and ensuring fiscal responsibility of our Local’s resources. Our most important goal will be the proper and vigilant representation of ALL our members, ranging from Aetna Ambulance to Veritiv drivers and warehouse workers.
In closing, my promise to all of you is this—Your Executive Board will always approach their duties and responsibility towards our members with honesty, transparency, and the mindset of improving the working lives of all of those that we represent.
I ask all of you to give us the opportunity to achieve our goals and make Teamsters Local 671 the best Local it can be.
