The goal of the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee is to strengthen positive representation for Teamster women throughout the union. The committee is encouraged to organize Teamster initiatives and coordinate Teamster activities, including regular support of charitable organizations and training opportunities for rank-and-file members.
Participating committee members are part of an organization established to unite Teamster women to address their concerns and issues in the workplace; to promote women’s involvement across all levels of the Teamsters Union; to foster better relationships and communication between members; and to build solidarity within the union.
Since its inception in 2009, the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee has brought together affiliated representatives to strengthen communication and leadership opportunities for women throughout the union. All Teamsters, women and men, are welcome to participate in our regular meetings, trainings, seminars, fundraising and scholarship opportunities.Paused
The local will be released from trusteeship following an election of officers. The release notice recommends an election be scheduled as soon as September 2017.
“I accepted the unanimous recommendation of the panel appointed to review Local 710’s trusteeship and listened to the hundreds of members that submitted written statements,” said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. “The Teamsters are founded on democratic principles. Releasing Local 710 from trusteeship will allow the members to forge a new beginning and a new chapter in this great local’s history.”
