A Message From the President

  As a new member, I am sure there are many questions you have about the Teamsters Union. Understanding your Union will be extremlely important in the years to come. I urge you to become a active member of Local No. 24 and get involved. Please browse the website to get familiar with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Local No. 24. Your degree of participation is totally up to you, from just paying your union dues, to attending the monthly membership meetings, or participating on the volunteer organizing committee.  It's your choice. There will always be room for you and we welcome new ideas. There are plenty of activities going on from attending Rallies on the War on Workers, Labor Day Parades or Phone Banking. Just ask, how can I help. 

  To become a member in good standing, you must take your oath of obligation. To accomplish this, attend our next Regular Meeting, or just schedule a time to come to the union office. I hope you will take an interest in your union and actively support your worksite Union Stewards. Working together, we can help insure equity on the job. The strength of Local No. 24 at your company is a direct reflections of the unity and participation of you, the members. If you have any questions, please let me know. The Union office is open from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The telephone number is (330) 434-8126.

   To the rest of my Brothers and Sisters of Local No. 24, as you already know, were standing on the shoulders of our retirees who came before us and now its our turn to build on that legacy. Our fight is different in alot of ways, but never forget, its still a fight and we can't win without you. If there is anything that your Union can do for you. We have one rule - just ask.

HOW TO TALK ABOUT RIGHT TO WORK

Never underestimate the power of a personal conversation. Research shows there’s a way to talk about right to work that gets beyond the clever messaging. 

Since 1955, corporations and millionaires have been trying to confuse and manipulate workers into giving up our rights through something called Right to Work. . As early as 1959, Eleanor Roosevelt stood up against Right to Work because “it does nothing for working people, but instead gives employers the right to exploit labor.”  This is the message: Right to Work isn’t what it seems. Politicians backed by billionaires and anti-worker corporations try to make the issue as complicated and confusing as possible, but we are not fooled.  Right to Work takes away the freedoms – and paychecks – of workers everywhere.

Some facts: 

Just by living in a Right to Work state, the average worker gives up $1,540 in salary every year.  

Across America, states with Right to Work laws have higher unemployment and lower pay.  That’s exactly what the corporate interests want. They want to use Right to Work  to destroy unions that stand up for workers across the country.   They want Right to Work to ship more jobs overseas, rig the tax system and demand more work from employees while treating them with less respect.

Right to Work laws eliminate freedom and flexibility for workers.  Workers lose job security, good-paying jobs and health insurance in Right to Work states. Without serious workplace representation, Right to Work states even face a 15 percent higher chance of infant mortality and have a 36 percent higher rate of workplace deaths.  Right to Work means more pressure on struggling working-class families, not less.

Follow the Money

The National Right to Work committee was founded in 1955 to push this agenda.  Right to Work is pushed by  ALEC, the lobbying organization backed by the Koch brothers, chambers of commerce, and “think tanks” like the Mackinac Institute in Michigan, which are funded by billionaires and which to promote propaganda disguised as nonpartisan or “conservative” studies. 

Don‘t be fooled by the corporations and the billionaires.  Right to Work is an unfair attack on the working class that strips millions of Americans of their freedoms at work.  For more information on what Right to Work has or wants to do in your state, check out this Right to Work impact fact sheet and a FAQ from the Minnesota AFL-CIO.
