Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee

Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee Bringing Teamster Women Together! Since 2009, the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee has brought together representatives from every Joint Council 25 affiliate to strengthen communication and leadership opportunities for women throughout our union.

Throughout the year, the Women's Committee participates in political and community outreach, sponsors an annual Women's Seminar and takes part in charity events in Chicago and throughout Illinois. With newly elected leaders and an Executive Board in place, the Women's Committee has expanded participation by introducing voluntary membership and quarterly meetings for
rank-and-file Teamster women and men.

🙏 The Teamsters Union is mourning the death of a UPS driver who was killed Monday, October 11 when a small twin-engine plane fell from the sky and struck the driver’s package-delivery truck near San Diego.

Steve Krueger, a driver who worked at the San Diego UPS center, was killed after the plane’s wings smashed into his truck in Santee, California. A cardiologist piloting the plane was also killed and at least two other people on the ground were hurt in the plane crash, which remained under investigation.

“Steve loved his job and this was going to be his last peak season before retiring,” said Ron Cutitta, a Business Agent with Local 542 and former co-worker of Kueger’s. “He would enter the building each morning with a smile on his face, and then leave with a smile.”

Krueger’s co-workers gathered at the center Tuesday morning and held a moment of silence in his memory. At 12:14 p.m. Tuesday, at the time when Krueger was killed 24 hours earlier, area UPS drivers pulled over and activated their emergency flashing lights to honor their fallen co-worker, Cutitta said. UPS asked all its operations to hold a moment of silence for Krueger at 12:14 p.m. Tuesday.

“On behalf of the 1.4 million Teamsters, we mourn the loss of Brother Krueger,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “He was a hardworking, dedicated UPS Teamster, who died doing the job he loved so much.”

I AM A PROUD TEAMSTERS WOMAN AT LOCAL 743
On this day in labor history, the year was 1934. That was the day that came to be known as Bloody Friday. Minneapolis Teamsters had been on strike for three days in their third strike of the year. The trucking bosses had reneged on their May settlement. They refused to recognize union organization of inside workers. In the period between strikes, the union had documented hundreds of cases of discrimination. Now, 7,000 Teamsters effectively shut down trucking throughout the city. Local 574 leaders established a daily strike bulletin. The Organizer, as it was called, would serve to guide strikers to victory. In his book, Revolutionary Teamsters, historian Bryan Palmer notes that the first few days of the strike had been quiet. Then on this day, police attempted to break the picket lines by running what seemed to be a lone scab truck through the lines. It was later discovered the truck was moving no merchandise, but was used to draw strikers into a confrontation. When flying pickets moved to stop the truck, they were ambushed. Police opened fire on unarmed pickets and then sprayed those who attempted to escape with buckshot. At least 48 were wounded. Striker Henry Ness and Unemployed Council supporter John Belor were killed. Palmer notes that Ness had been shot point blank in the chest. Doctors pulled 38 slugs from his body. “His death bed injunction repeated word of mouth among the strikers: “Tell the boys not to fail me now.” More than 40,000 turned out to pay their respects to the World War I veteran and father of four. Palmer adds that, “Bloody Friday had lasted a matter of minutes. But its meaning would leave a mark on the very fabric of Minneapolis socio-economic relations…” From 2015: I love Labor History in 2:00 | July 20 No Newspaper Today, let's play it! http://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-dnbpi-57748b From 2016: I love Labor History in 2:00 | July 20 Delivering Respect, let's play it! http://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-k5sf8-6136a9
