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 (234) 888-0848.
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.
