Ken Hall and Denis Taylor Go Down
“In New York City, we built a volunteer army that campaigned in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Washington DC,” said UPS Teamster and Local 804 member Antonio Rosario from the vote count site. “It is awesome to watch these vote totals roll in. Whether the local officers were with us or not, the members want change and they are voting Teamsters United.”
Hoffa’s UPS Package Division Director Denis Taylor lost his home Local 355 for the second consecutive election on his way to retirement.
Members in Ken Hall’s home Local 175 also voted for Teamsters United.
Following the national pattern, Vairma-Herrera candidates carried their locals with low turnout.
Vairma running mate Tom Gesualdi was the rare exception in getting members in his home local to vote in above average voter turnout.
Congratulations to newly-elected Eastern Region Vice Presidents Matt Taibi, Greg Floyd, and Rocco Calo.
