    Hoffa Scholarship 2018

    The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded $1.4 million in scholarship
    awards to students in the U.S. and Canada this year. For the first time this included scholarships
    to assist with students attending training and vocational programs. Assisting the sons, daughters
    and financial dependents of Teamster members with their educational goals is a tradition
    that we are proud to continue.

    This year the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund decided to have International
    Scholarship and Tuition Service (ISTS) administer the academic and vocational program
    awards for the Fund. ISTS is an experienced administrator for college scholarship funds across
    the country.

    The Fund’s website, www.jrhmsf.org , will continue to have the most up-to-date information
    about the online application for the Academic and Training and Vocational Programs
    scholarships. The application process for the programs is now open and we encourage the sons,
    daughters and financial dependents of members to apply.

    Sincerely,

    The Board of the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund

    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

     It gives me great pleasure to let you know our Local is as financially sound as it has ever been.  Although the Mergers of Local 669 and 182 into our Local initially caused a bit of a strain, our local has seen its assets grow!

    Good fiscal practices, prudent managerial decisions that have been implemented and teamwork throughout the office have attributed to our Local having current assets at almost $1.9 Million dollars.

    All of these things have allowed us to leverage our financial strength to benefit our members with strong contracts, arbitration procedures, and growing through organizing. We continue to have some of the strongest contracts in our industries with the best wages and language.

    With President Bulgaro’s leadership, a strong financial discipline, proper budgeting, and the team effort we have…. I see great things happening for the future of our local!
