VIDEO: Inside the world of Teamsters' business agents

Many people -- even union members themselves -- may not fully understand what goes on behind the scenes at union locals. But Teamsters Local 362 in Alberta, Canada is pulling back the curtain on that by debuting a new video this week that explains the life of business agents.

As Local 362 said on its own blog:
Working their way up from employee to shop steward to finally, a business agent, is a rewarding journey – described by several of Local 362’s business agents as "the ultimate." 
They are strong advocates for members’ rights, have an important relationship with the shop steward and are someone you know you can call if you have any issues.
The Teamsters applauds the important work of business agents all across North America. They are the engine behind Teamster Power!
