      MESSAGE FROM SECRETARY-TREASURER
      Steven P. Vairma

      Steve Vairma's Column:

      Teamsters play key role in pandemic fight

      It seems like there are more trucks than cars on the highways nowadays.  Proportionately, though, that's probably because there are so many fewer automobiles on the road as the nation attempts to overcome the tragic coronavirus disease.

      However, one factor that is obvious by the unfamiliar highway scene is the vital role played by trucks during the Covid 19 pandemic.

      Indeed, we all should give sincere thanks to those workers who are holding the lives of others in their capable hands during the coronavirus.  They are many - the doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and other medical professionals who risk their own lives for the sake of others every day during Covid-19.

      There's a lot of people to thank.

      So, let's not forget the huge role played by those workers responsible for loading and delivering the food, medicine, ventilators, heavy medical equipment and even the toilet paper needed by the emergency medical technicians, police, fire fighters, grocery store clerks and the general public.

      There's no question that without trucks and those who drive and load them, Covid-19 would win.

      Teamsters are loading, driving, sometimes unloading thousands of those trucks daily, often taking risks by entering hospitals and other facilities where victims of coronavirus are being treated.  Other Teamsters, hopefully temporarily unemployed, are assisting in the Covid-19 effort by staying home.

      Teamsters whose work is considered vital to the commonweal and those whose work is to stay at home are both doing their jobs during this perilous time.

      • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

        Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

      • The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

      • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!
