2018 was an incredibly productive year for Local 350. It was a year of growth, arbitration victories, successful negotiations and political influence. All in all, we have a lot to be grateful for.
I want to express the tremendous gratitude we feel for the constant and unyielding support we’ve received from everyone, including our members, fellow Teamsters Locals and affiliated labor organizations. I’m grateful and honored to have the opportunity to represent all of the hard-working members of Local 350.
We’re extremely fortunate to have some of the best contracts in the country. This is largely due to the strength of our members and the political work that we do. We will continue to strive for success, meanwhile understanding the importance of not taking our good fortune for granted.
2018 was a devastating year for some Teamsters– Over one hundred Teamsters families recently lost their homes in the Camp Fire. I can’t imagine the tremendous loss they have experienced, especially during this time of year and want to extend our condolences.
Fortunately, we are in a position to be able to help. Local 350 members have approved donations of tens of thousands of dollars in recent years for Teamsters affected by natural disasters, including $20,000 for the victims of the Camp Fire.
We will continue to give and support our fellow Teamsters. We always help our own and encourage all of our members to do the same. Please follow the link below to donate to the Joint Council 7 All Charities Fund to give to those in need.
Happy New Year from Teamsters Local 350 and may you all have a safe, healthy and prosperous 2019!
