The International Elections Have Ended
The International Elections concluded on November 17, 2016. Thank you to all the members who voted. On behalf of myself and the executive board, I’d like to congratulate Jim Hoffa Hall Slate on another 5-year term.
President, Teamsters 230
I would like to thank the new members of local 230 for their strong support during the lengthy certification and bargaining for a new agreement. It was a hard fought battle to get a new agreement even to the extent the employer went to the OLRB and requested they conduct a vote on their final offer which the Union did not support and was turned down by a significant number by the members.It is because of the members trust in Local 230 to get the job done that ended up in a ratification of the first agreement. With the employer Canada Cartage Systems Limited Partnership. The vote was held on Sunday November 13, 2016 with a full recommendation of the committee.
I again would like to thank all the members for the support and the negotiating committee Roy, Mike, Ken and Luis. It is very rewarding when it all comes together and no strike was needed. There will be an adjustment for both parties to get use to the operation of the agreement but I am confident the issues will be resolved to the best interest of all.
On behalf of the executive board business agents and staff welcome to the Teamsters Union Local 230.
President, Teamsters 230
The union would like to congratulate Gregory Ord, son of Jeff Ord, a long-time Teamsters Local 230 member. Gregory Ord is the recipient of the 2016-2017 James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship (high school seniors). We wish Gregory all the best in his future endeavors.
Welcome, Marco Posca!
I would like to welcome our new Business Representative Marco Posca to our team. He brings all the attributes we are looking for now and in the future for our membership. The decision to hire Marco was after long and careful consideration of all the applicants. I would ask that you please give Marco your full support as you can be sure I will. Marco will start his new position with the local as of Sept. 19, 2016.
I would also like to thank all those that applied for this position and for attending the interviews. It was a pleasure to see so many that were willing to work for the membership and show the commitment necessary to do the job. I would hope that in the future for other vacancies that those that did not get this opportunity will once again apply.
Thanking all concerned,
President, Local 230.
