The majority of Teamsters in the United States voted for the Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United Slate, and Teamsters United vice president candidates won handily in the Central and Southern Regions.

Tony Jones, Bill Frisky, Avral Thompson, and Bob Kopystynsky were elected as the IBT Vice Presidents for the Central Region.

John Palmer and Kimberly Schultz were elected the Vice Presidents for the Southern Region.

“Teamsters are fed up with concessions and pension cuts,” said Tony Jones. “The members made their voices heard at the ballot box—and we will make their voices heard on the General Executive Board.”

Apparently the next General Executive Board meeting will be held in May during the Teamster Unity Conference in Las Vegas.

“We will be the eyes and ears of the membership,” Bill Frisky said. “We were elected to serve the members, and that’s just what we will do.”

 “Our job is to be the voice of the members and to report back to them,” said Kim Schultz. “Members want communication and transparency—and that’s what they can expect from us.”

The pension protection bill is named in honor of Butch Lewis, who died in December 2015, and was an important leader in the pension protection movement. His widow, Rita Lewis, has carried on the fight and was a featured speaker at the Washington DC press conference.
