Thank you to the Veterans who have served our country so bravely.  We appreciate you and your service to this country more than we can express.  A special shoutout to our Teamster Veterans.  We have many retired and reserve military men and women working hard across all of our industries, in all of our workplaces, every single day.  At our monthly meeting, we had several in attendance.  Thank you to everyone who came out on your Saturday to attend the monthly meeting and see the IBT Organizing Departments training session. Thank you to David & Dennis for coming out this month to help us with our internal organizing.  They visited our UPS Asheville & Hickory centers and signed up several new members for Local 61.


On Saturday, November 11th, the Teamsters Organizing Department hosted an Internal Organizing Training for Local 61 UPS shop stewards in Asheville, North Carolina. Following the ratification of the historic new contract at UPS, the Organizing Department has continued its internal organizing program with a focus on contract enforcement and signing up non-members in Right to Work states.

Growing the Teamster membership at UPS is critical to building rank-and-file strength and enforcing the new contract. Any local unions that are interested in partnering with the Teamsters Organizing Department to conduct UPS internal organizing trainings can use the link below to sign up for more information:
