150 Members at NY TDU Education Conference

March 17, 2014: On March 15, 150 Teamsters attended a day-long education conference sponsored by TDU in New York City to educate themselves and build Teamster solidarity.

“It’s inspiring to get together with like-minded Teamsters from all over the Northeast,” said Local 773 member Al Watrous, who made the drive in from Allentown, PA. “Knowledge is power. We need more members to get involved and take the time to learn. I’m looking forward to meeting many other Teamsters at upcoming events.”

The conference, organized by the NY TDU Chapter, brought in members from more than a dozen local unions in NYC, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Workshops included Dealing with UPS management, Running for Local Union Office, Be the Arbitrator: What it Takes to Win Your Grievance, and more.

The Chapter is now organizing a Bowl-a-Thon event and fundraiser for May 3.
