Teamsters Bring Goodwill For Children
Posted On: Dec 09, 2012
TEAMSTERS DELIVER GOODWILL FOR CHILDREN
 
South Charleston, WV - Teamsters Local 175 in South Charleston has been very busy for the last few weeks.  At their regular December union meeting members and retirees joined together to raise more than $15,000.00 in toys, food, and donations for the Childrens Home Society. The Teamsters have helped provide for children and families for over 10 years.  The Childrens Home Society provides emergency youth shelters, foster care and adoption, and mentoring and volunteer programs.  Last year, due to the Teamsters help, the CHS was able to help 428 needy children and famiies.  This year the Teamsters increased their contributions 50% from last years record setting total. 

Scott Foley, regional director of the CHS remarked, " If it were not for the good hearts and generosity of the Teamsters, we could never help as many families as we do.  Words cannot describe the appreciation that we, as well as our children and families, have for all the Teamster members."  After the union meeting on Saturday morning, members and retirees shopped for toys and food.  These items will be delivered on Monday morning at 9:30am to the Childrens Home Society's Davis Child Center in Charleston. 

Ken Hall, president of Local 175 and secretary-treasurer of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, stated "I am incredibly proud of our members and retirees.  Our members feel that through their contracts they have a better standard of living than most and our retirees realize they have good pensions and this is their opportunity to give back.  Our Teamster children and grandchildren also participate and there is no greater lesson than for them to understand the importance of giving to those who are less fortunate. " 
 
The Teamsters contribute to other charities, with the most recent being their participation in the Alzheimer's Walk in October.

Current Campaigns
  • Taylor Farms workers in Tracy, California are standing up against poverty wages, disrespect and severe violations of their most basic rights. These 900 food processing workers in the Central Valley cut, wash and package salads and other products for the largest supplier of fresh-cut produce in the country. They feed the customers of major grocers, retailers and restaurant chains, including Walmart and McDonald’s.

    With a revenue of $1.8 billion in 2012, Taylor Farms can afford to treat its workers in Tracy with dignity and pay fair wages, just like their Teamster coworkers have at Taylor Farms’ facilities in Salinas, California. But when workers came together to organize with Teamsters Local 601, the company responded mercilessly. It fired, harassed, and punished workers for supporting the union. The company threatened immigrant workers with deportation, hiring an army of union-busters to run a non-stop fear campaign. During an NLRB election for union representation, Taylor Farms deployed a goon squad of supervisors to intimidate workers. The company’s violations were so egregious that the Labor Board impounded ballots while it investigates hundreds of Unfair Labor Practice charges.

    Workers in Tracy, following in the footsteps of labor leader and civil rights icon Cesar Chavez, are taking their fight to the public. The workers’ struggle for a better life for their families is supported by Teamsters in California and nationwide. We are building a movement for respect for the workers who feed America.

    ¡Si Se Puede!

  • The 2014 elections are right around the corner and this is your headquarters for the Teamsters Vote 2014 program. The page provides information on registering to vote, news about the Teamsters Vote 2014 campaign and a legislative scorecard that shows how your Member of Congress and Senators voted on the issues that matter to Teamster members and America’s working families.

  • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

    After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

  • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
    More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
    Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • This is a list of Teamster locals whose members are either on strike or locked out by the employer. We will update this list on a monthly basis.
