They can continue to psych some into thinking unions are bad but when the unions declined so did jobs, wages, worker rights, health insurance etc.. Be very happy they are making a comeback and I hope to be stronger.Peter Guttieri
...was a teamster all my life and NEVER regretted itNicolle Crist
I had the opportunity to work with two retired teamsters in their 80's during the presidential campaign. They came out in cold damp weather - armed with cell phones and stories, and helped teen-agers, middle aged office workers and retired teachers make phone calls and get out the vote. It's a memory I will cherish for my entire life.Christopher Cornman
No right to work, union proud America was built by the sweat of our brow...Jo-Ann Savino
THE BEST UNION EVER! WORKED IN THE OFFICE AT NAVAJO FRT LINE AND A MEMBER AND THEN WORKED AT LOCAL 443 FOR MANY YEARS - LOVED MY JOB AND THE PEOPLE I WORKED FOR. MADE MY LIFE SO GREAT BEING A TEAMSTERDaniel Ahrendt
I wanna say how proud I am of my fellow brother that work for Ironclad Logistic local 863 for standing for our rights and standing up to the company. Today we had to strike. It was only for two and a half hours, but we were heard! And we made our point! Special thanks to Jed Trucking for standing with us!Connie Mastin Freeman
We as a society have to stand together or else we fall together. All union Brothers and Sisters need to stay stronger than ever before so that we as a society move forward and make a better life for generations to come! Am I proud to be a UNION MEMBE? Damn proud! Current member of SEIU, past member of Teamsters, ISMWU, and APWU! Union member through and through!And this comment we especially like. It's a response to a hoax email that was supposedly sent by comedian Bill Cosby complaining about the behavior of some African-Americans. Cosby denied he sent the email, but Brother Wilkinson (who runs the tremendous Friends of Teamsters Local 222 Facebook page) posted an eloquent response that deserves repeating.
Bill, there are people that fit your generalized descriptions but the Americans, black, white and brown, that I spent my work years with, for the most part, were hard working men and women; Teamsters, that were paid a respectable wage and accorded dignity in the work place." Hope" for the future is vital to every human being and when we have that important element in our life, behavior is altered. I am convinced that if a person is treated like a worthless part of society, they often behave as they are expected to behave. But if respect and dignity are accorded an individual, they will strive to become the person they want to be and the person that others expect them to be. That is what a labor union tries to give to it's people and that has been my observation during my work life.
