    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe! Our Local has had a lot of challenges this past year and one thing I have learned is that Local 294 Teamsters know how to fight the good fight! I was fortunate to be witness to these “fighters”… members who keep our union strong by stepping out of their daily routine to support their coworkers… many times this year. I am talking about our shop stewards and member leaders who understand that our strength is in our unity and solidarity. These are the members who choose to lead, learn, and stand up for fairness at work. They sit through contract negotiations, dispel anti-union misinformation, and constantly organize their peers for strength. They just seem to inherently know that the next generation of workers depend on today’s Teamsters to keep our union strong … just as we depended on the Teamsters that came before us. Think about it for a moment, every place of employment, at one point, had no union. Workers had to fight to change how things were. They risked their jobs and their families' livelihoods to stand together as one. They demanded that their right to negotiate with the employer for wages, working conditions, and benefits be recognized, and they won their fight. We cannot forget these fights. It is important that we all recognize the hard work and dedication of members who step up and become advocates of our union. This keeps us strong and moves us forward. We cannot forget that we stand on the shoulders of our predecessors and it is our duty to preserve, protect and build upon their efforts.

  • Organize Your Workplace

    Most employers wish there company could remain union free because unions stand up for the rights of employees and demand that their voice be heard. The only way to force a positive change in your workplace is for you and your co-workers to have representation from Teamsters Union Local 294. One employee all alone will be ignored, but when you and your co-workers organize with Teamsters Union Local 294 and become united, we will be able to negotiate a legally binding contract that includes better wages, affordable health care, a secure retirement and a safer workplace for all.

    Members of Teamsters Union Local 294 understand that the only way to ensure job security and protect the future of their families is to negotiate a legally binding union contract. When you and your co-workers negotiate a union contract, your wages and benefits will be part of the negotiating process. When was the last time that your boss asked you for your input when it came to your review?

    The rights and benefits in a legally binding contract cannot be reversed once they are agreed upon. The Teamsters will fight to get you and your family the compensation you deserve. The rights outlined in the contract cannot be altered without your approval. Therefore, as an example if the contract states that you are entitled to two full weeks of vacation a year, you are able to take those vacation days off without negotiating on an individual basis with management.

    The members of the Teamsters Union understand that the only way to ensure job security and protect the future of their families is to negotiate a legally binding union contract.

    For further information on organizing please feel free to send an e-mail to info@teamsterslocal294.org or contact (518) 489-5436.  All calls and emails are confidential.
