DOT Classes

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
DOT has implemented classes for Teamsters supervisors, Mechanic Foremen and other personnel to attain
multiple licenses as 4-G and Hosting 2A -2B.  We sent a cease-and-desist order to stop these classes
until DOT bargains in good faith over changing your job descriptions. Let me be clear: DOT is going ahead with these classes and it's up to you if you want to take this class or not, I repeat your choice. There will be no discipline action taken on any Teamster members.
 
Any questions or problems at all, call me directly.
 
In Solidarity, Brother George

Rally at the State House

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
As you all know, Teamsters Local 127 membership ratified a one-year contract extension back in April of this year, but the legislature has still not authorized our wage increases.
 
Our raises should not be put on hold while the cost-of-living increases keep skyrocketing. That's why we're coming together on October 19.2023 at 11:am at the State House and demand the legislators take immediate action on our outstanding raises. Please make sure to join all of us at the State House on the 19th and we can all let the lawmakers know that we demand and deserve our raises.
 
In Solidarity,
Brother George

Membership dues

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

A reminder that the monthly dues rate for members of Teamsters Local 127 is 2.25% of the hourly wage. Dues increases should be implemented the month following any increase in an employee/member's hourly rate of pay.

Plain and simple, as your pay increases, so will your dues.

I would also like to mention that members that are in arrears with their dues will see that being deducted from their pay as an initiation fee. And with the next two raises of 4% each you will see the dues increase.

In solidarity.
Brother George

Ratification Vote

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The ratification vote to extend our contract for one year with an 8% pay increase was a resounding Yes with one dissenting vote no.

I will forward your votes to the DOT for execution.
