As you all know, our Local experienced an election for Union Officers and Business Agents who will serve as your representatives for the next three years. As a 47-year Teamster and 28-year Officer of this great Local, I feel that our Executive Board and Business Agents are a true representation of the diverseness of our membership. Your Executive Board consists of youth, experience, diversity, and most of all dedication. I have been a part of many Executive Boards and I am proud to say that this one has the greatest potential of all that I have been a part of.
We set many goals, such as organizing new members, maintaining, improving, expanding health care for all, and ensuring fiscal responsibility of our Local’s resources. To date, we have accomplished all of them. I am proud to say that we have welcomed a few new groups to the Local this year. We also have increased dental and vision benefits for the members of the Local 671 Health Services Fund and our Local Union Treasury is solvent.
In closing, the Executive Board, Officers and Staff will always approach their duties and responsibility towards our members with honesty, transparency, and the mindset of improving the working lives of all of those that we represent.
