Teamsters urgently needed for Sandy relief in Jersey CIty

Props to these Teamsters who showed up at a Red Cross warehouse on a few hours'
notice for the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
UPDATE: The Red Cross tells us Teamsters are needed tomorrow, Sunday, at 7 a.m. at the Somerset, N.J., warehouse at  #1 Heller Park Lane, to deliver goods to victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Today, union members from all over New Jersey and New York are delivering goods to storm victims. Members of the New York and New Jersey Teamster Joint Councils and their family are out driving trucks, driving forklifts, loading boxes and driving truckloads to help victims. Sister Bernadette Kelly from Joint Council 16 tells us there have been sightings of members of Locals 553, 707, 817, 210, 813 and 804. Awesome work!

We reported earlier that Teamsters are urgently needed at the Red Cross's Jersey City warehouse today -- as soon as possible -- to pack and load trucks with supplies for Sandy victims. Hi Lo drivers are especially requested. Drivers are needed to drive the trucks out to five staging areas in New York. CDLs are NOT needed.

The warehouse is at 100 Industrial Drive in Jersey City. Call Donna at 573-690-0745 for information.

Teamsters are also needed at the five staging areas in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Staten Island and Ronkonkoma, N.Y.  If members show up to the staging areas, they will work there or be transported to New Jersey and back. Addresses are below.

Teamsters showed up last night on very short notice to pack and load supplies for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

We understand from Sister Bernadette Kelly that many more are helping out this morning. We'll keep you posted.
