Local 726 Members Fight For Their Future

A large group of Teamsters attended a recent meeting hosted by the Fighting for the Future slate in Local 726. Many work for the City of Chicago and responded to recent headlines that threatened major layoffs.

The meeting discussed how an active membership could address the issues.

Vince Tenuto, a leader of Fighting for the Future, outlined plans to continue to inform and educate members on developments in Local 726.

He reported on continued efforts to challenge the results of the 2007 local election. A suit has been filed in federal court, and the U.S. labor department is conducting initial interviews regarding complaints lodged against Local 726 and other issues.

Members want change in our local. Fighting for the Future has consistently addressed the issues facing working Teamsters. We’re committed to make real changes in Local 726 and the membership knows we mean it.

Leo "Duke" Clark
