Union Mettings Postponed

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, union meetings have been postponed until further notice.

To all brothers and sisters

There are so many updates from the DOT on a daily basis. Please look at HR/portal DOT for the latest from the state.
There was concern about not having enough PPE and buildings not being sanitized.  Each district is hiring their own cleaning company.
If you need something or a building cleaned report it to your department heads.
If you get sick and are out of time there is up to two weeks the state will give you. Teamsters are trying to negotiate if you will have to pay it back or not  We will negotiate some type of hazard pay for you members on the  front lines.  Without the teamsters the road would close. Thank you for being the professionals you are.
United we stand
Secretary-Treasurer/Principal Officer


To all Teamster Local 127 members:

There are no guidelines or protocol for DOT maintenance workers.

DOT is telling all maintenance workers to report to work as usual.

If you don't feel safe at your work location and have health concerns, STAY HOME.

You will need to use your own time, but we are working on getting members reimbursed for sick time used.

This is new territory and no one has all the answers.

The UNION WILL UPDATE all members by web site.
