TO ALL MEMBERS OF TEAMSTERS LOCAL 384
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM YOUR EXECUTIVE BOARD
We are living in an unprecedented moment in our nation's history, COVID-19 has brought about so many changes in our lives, both personal and professional, it’s hard for many of you to keep up with the daily influx of information. The Officers and staff at Teamsters Local 384 are committed to help you navigate through these very difficult times, our office will be staffed and your Business Agents are working very hard to answer the hundreds of phone calls we have been receiving during this crisis.
Healthcare questions, layoffs, personal safety, State and Federal aid, we are gathering as much information as possible on these and many other issues and communicating to our membership as quickly and efficiently as possible. The challenges to our Public Sector employees are varied and very fluid at the moment, fortunately, Governor Wolf has signed Senate Bill #751 which provides for continuity of education plans and ensures school employees are paid during the closures.
Fortunately, our members employed by Tyco and ADT are still working along with Chester County HHS working in the field and of course our Correctional Officers are always on the job..24/7.
Our members from the food service groups, Aramark and Chartwells, continue to provide meals for at risk children in their Districts.
I realize our healthcare professionals are front and center in our nations fight against this disease, and we cannot thank them enough for their heroic actions, but I would be remiss if I didn’t include the men and women of our Local who are supplying the hospitals, doctors offices clinics and food stores as well as delivering goods to our homes and pharmacies. Of course, I am talking about our members at United Parcel Service, UPS Freight, ABF, YRC, Volpe and Fox Logistics all of these drivers are working every day to make sure you are safe and America gets back on its feet as soon as possible.
Remember, if you have it in your home, or get it at a store, if its ordered online and delivered to you, chances are a truck got it there!
And when the kids do get back to school, those hundreds of bus drivers that transport your children safely every day..they are Teamsters also !
So, the next time you're driving down the road and see one of our members, flash your lights, give a wave, to say,
Proud to be a member of Teamsters Local 384
