Election Day – Time to Vote Like a Teamster

Posted November 8, 2016 By Local 769


Election day is here and it’s time for the voice of working families to be heard. It’s time to Vote Like a Teamster! As Union members, this is your chance to make sure that the needs of working families are represented in government. There is simply too much at risk as General President Hoffa said, “A Better Way Forward Requires Showing Up to Vote. The issues before us are just too important not to weigh in on. ”

10628430_511881028948708_1464329370796780634_nWe all need to do our part and vote for labor friendly candidates. Not those who will always stand for corporate interests. “For too long, elected officials in Washington have sat back and done nothing while wages remain flat and roads and bridges continue to crumble. Meanwhile, the pensions of Teamsters and other workers are holding on by a thread and require government intervention., said president Hoffa.

This past weekend at the Teamsters Local 769 Annual South Picnic, President and Principal Officer Mike Scott spoke about the importance of having our voices heard at the polls. Members rallied around our current get out the vote campaign, “Vote Like a Teamster” and cheered as District 23 Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz called Teamsters to action stating “We have to vote like Union lives depend on it, because my friends they do.”

Teamster brothers and sisters, the moment is upon us. We will have to live with the results of this election for years to come and we cannot let all that we have gained be cast aside so quickly. If you haven’t already voted, please vote today and cast your ballot for labor. Vote Like a Teamster.

A BIG Thank You goes out to all who participated in the Vote Like a Teamster Challenge and we have a winner for week number one. We received many photo submissions and Robert Brown of Gold Coast Linen in West Palm Beach Florida is the Teamsters Local 769 member who was randomly chosen from the first weeks entries to be featured above and to receive a FREE Teamsters Local 769 T-shirt.

signal-2016-10-14-133021There are many issues facing working families these days and all of them will be affected by the 2016 elections, both at the top of the ticket and all the way down the ballot. Each election we are faced with important choices and voters like the Teamsters pictured on this page, along with other labor unions across the nation, will be standing up for candidates that fight work workers rights and a strong middle class. The right to collectively bargain remains the only clear pathway to the middle class and it is under constant threat from corporate sponsored legislation and anti-union candidates.

img_20161014_112521This election season we ask our members as well as friends and family to stand up for candidates who are proud to stand with labor and to “Vote like a Teamster”. In past years we declared that we were Teamsters and we vote but voting itself is just not enough. We need to focus specifically on candidates that support collective bargaining and stand for union values and that is why this election season we are asking you to “Vote like a Teamster”.

The Airline Division is very involved in Capitol Hill, including raising the standards in the aviation industry which includes above and below the wing. This is of the utmost importance to everyone in the aviation industry and the public’s safety. That is why I Vote Like A Teamster.” says Teamsters Local 769 Business Agent David Renshaw.

AmerijetInto the early hours of Friday morning, after nearly four years of bargaining and arbitration, the Airline Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Teamsters Local 769 and the AmeriJet negotiating committee announced that an Agreement in Principle had been reached by all parties for a new collective bargaining agreement.

According to David Renshaw, Local 769 Business Agent for the Miami based carrier; significant gains over the previous collective bargaining agreement have been achieved.

“We anticipate having the final language and agreement ready in the near future for the membership to review and vote upon,” said Renshaw. “After years of arbitrations, lawsuits and the Company doing everything it could to refuse to honor the existing CBA, we are moving forward under the direction of the new ownership. With the willingness of their management team, we anticipate a better and more productive relationship to take place where labor is concerned.

A tremendous amount of credit belongs to Airline Division Director David Bourne, Assistant Division Director Steven Nagrotsky and Lead Attorney Nick Manicone, as we would not have been able to proceed to obtain this agreement without their outstanding leadership, unyielding efforts, guidance and their steadfast commitment to all Teamsters in the airline industry.

Furthermore, I would also like to thank the I.B.T Economics Department and the due diligence of our collective bargaining committee, as their tireless efforts are validated through a successful agreement having been reached by all parties,” he concluded.

I Vote like a Teamster because everything we have in collective bargaining can be taken away with the stroke of a pen by legislators. All gains we have made at the NLRB including the new election process will be lost if we elect the wrong person to the white house.”, said Teamsters Local 769 President and Principal Officer Mike Scott.

Teamsters Win Court Decision Against AmeriJet

Posted September 22, 2016 By Local 769

amerijetUPDATE11th Circuit Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of Union

(WASHINGTON) – A three-judge panel for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that Amerijet must follow a district court order to arbitrate labor disputes with Teamsters who are temporarily based in the Caribbean.

This decision is the latest in a series of legal wins for the Teamsters against Amerijet. The union originally sued Amerijet in April 2012 after the company began illegally terminating workers who were stationed overseas under false legal premises.

“This case was decided in less than a week and the court’s ruling was less than 50 words,” said Capt. David Bourne, Director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “It has been almost a year since the Supreme Court declined to take this baseless case. Enough is enough; this company needs to stop the games and get back to the table to work with the pilots.”

 

The case is International Brotherhood of Teamsters v. Amerijet International Inc., case number 15-15145, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
