Local 455 Teamster stewards packed Black Hawk, CO, this weekend for the 2023 Steward's training, a chance to sharpen their skills, fine-tune their focus and share some solidarity. More than 150 stewards filled the ballroom of the Ameristar Hotel, representing employers in the bakery-laundry, freight, airline, warehouse, parcel and other Teamster industries.

Stewards heard from law enforcement about hours-of-service regulations and violations; learned the value of political engagement -- federal, state and local; worked through grievance case-studies; reviewed the 2023 UPS Agreement and shared some well-deserved solidarity.
