Woo-hoo! Another Teamster organizing victory in MA!

Please give a warm welcome to our 34 brothers and sisters who voted to join Teamsters Local 25 in Boston. They are school bus drivers with Eastern Bus Co. in Newton, Mass.

The drivers united for respect, fairness and consistency in their working conditions.  Local 25 President Sean O'Brien said the union is proud to welcome them to the Teamster family:
These hardworking school bus drivers were brave to do what they did, to stand together and organize for a better workplace.
Laniel Beauge, a driver with Eastern Bus, is happy to be a Teamster and is looking forward to having a Teamster contract:
 We called the Teamsters because we wanted a real union to improve our situation,” Beauge said. “We’re looking forward to having the respect and backing of a strong union. Teamsters Local 25 has great respect in the community.
You made the right decision to join our great union!
