With the help of the IBT Training & Development Dept., Local 61 hosted a Shop Stewards Training Seminar on April 15th, 2023. 

We had an excellent turnout and want to give all our stewards who took the time out of their Saturday to make it to this event a huge thank you. 

Paul Trujillo (IBT Training & Development), Karen Jones (IBT Historian & Trainer) & James Wright (International VP) were in attendance and taught our stewards an extensive history of the Teamsters Union and how to be an effective Shop Steward. 

We ran a mock AAPGC panel to show our stewards what to expect if they are in attendance. 

We heard a message from our International President, Sean O'Brien, about the importance of solidarity.  President O'Brien updated us all on the UPS/IBT Contract negotiations. 

We also heard a message from MaryBe McMillan, President of the NC State AFL-CIO, who was unable to attend.  MaryBe told our stewards what all the AFL-CIO does for Labor in North Carolina and congratulated Local 61 on recent organizing victories. 

Duncan Baker from Sounds Essential also presented our online grievance filing system that will be available soon to all our Members. 

Thank you to all who attended and helped organize this event.  It was a huge success!
