    • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

      Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

    • On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It’s important to note that many companies file Chapter 11 in an effort to reorganize their debt and capital structure to facilitate a sale to a strategic/industry buyer or to a financial buyer with the goal to continue operating its core lines of business – and one of those options appears to be the case here.   

      The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

    • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

    Local 776 President Ed Thompson

    Hello again,

    It is almost a year since myself, the Executive Board, and the Business Agents took office. It has been a busy and productive year. We had many goals as we took office and I’m happy to report we are accomplishing them; increasing membership, increasing DRIVE participation, and staying in touch with the members to name a few.

    One of our priorities was to maintain a presence in the York area. In 2013 the York Union Hall was abandoned. The doors were closed and all operations moved to Harrisburg as water continued to penetrate through a leaking roof. Upon taking office we took a hard look at alternatives to maintaining a York location and decided that the best way to move forward was to repair the York building and be located in OUR building, not a rental office. Presently the York Union Hall remains closed but I’m happy to report Joseph Smith Roofing of Langhorne, PA has replaced the roof. The roofers of Smith Roofing are Union members of the Roofers Union Local 30 in Philadelphia, PA. Work continues on the Hall to repair the ceiling and replace the carpeting that was damaged by the water. As the work progresses updates will be posted on the website.

    We continue to communicate with the members through the website. Local Union as well as IBT information is regularly updated. Our first newsletter was mailed to the members in August. Look for additional newsletters periodically. If you missed the newsletter it is available on the website under “downloads” on the Member Resources page. Website daily traffic continues to increase and members are encouraged to register for the website.

    The Local is strong financially. During the past year we have increased the general fund while also increasing our reserves.

    As the year draws to a close and we all are caught up in the holiday spirit I would like to wish each and every member along with their families a happy holiday season and a safe and happy new year.

    Fraternally,

    Ed Thompson, President
