Local 282 Teamsters Agreement

Drivers and workers at the Clare Rose warehouse have ratified a new contract by an overwhelming majority. The agreement increases the remuneration of all 812 members and maintains health and pension benefits. In response to Liberty Coca-Cola`s unilateral implementation of a new speed directive, Local 812 is asking all Coke employees who drive a company vehicle to drive 10 km/h below the published speed limit until mutual agreement is reached. Last week, Local 812 was informed by Harold Honickman of the upcoming sale of Canada Dry New York to Keurig Dr Pepper. The sales contract was signed on October 28 and we announced our membership shortly thereafter. The four-year contract includes approximately 500 concrete truck drivers in the coalition`s 11 companies. Negotiations began on June 1. Contact: Alex Moore, alex@teamstersjc16.com, 718-289-0204 Concrete conductors are among 120,000 teams of more than two dozen New York residents working in a number of industries, including sanitation facilities, parking lots, parcel delivery, storage, airlines, freight, public housing, food and beverage distribution, and school buses. „At a time when the middle class is shrinking and income inequality is widening, unions are showing that workers in this country can still prosper if they organize and mobilize,” Gesualdi said. After months of social destabilization, more than 100 local members gathered almost at the June 2020 general assembly. It was the first time the Local had held a members` meeting via Zoom, an online platform. Village chief Joe Vitta thanked the members for their strength and commitment during the pandemic. The fund`s second dinner was a great success! This unprecedented event raised more than $170,000 for scholarships and professional scholarships.

More than 400 people attended the gala and were allowed to catch up, eat and dance with former and new team friends. Congratulations to our dear Bernadette Kelly and our volunteer scholarship committee. Thanks to the continued generosity of 812 members, friends, allies, sellers and employers, our fund will remain strong in the future! As we observe Women`s History Month in March of this year, Local 812 recognizes the important contributions of our 812 sisters to our association. Recognizing the closure or limitation of U.S. authorities and health care providers, vehicle registration and health services are closed or restricted in accordance with state and federal emergency declarations.
