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.
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!
We are deeply saddened to inform you that the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee’s 8th Annual Scholarship Gala and Dinner Dance scheduled for April 4, 2020 has been postponed.
As you are aware, in hopes of lessening the spread of COVID-19, Illinois has been mandated by Governor Pritzker to “shelter in place, until April 7, 2020.
While we are saddened to announce the postponement of the event, we are proud to announce the Teamster Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee’s 2020 Scholarship winners.
