2017 Steward Seminar

On Saturday May 20, 2017 in Deerfield Beach, Florida, Teamsters Local 769 conducted our 2017 Steward Seminar. Stewards came from all over South Florida to gather at the DoubleTree Hilton for in-depth training and instruction on subjects ranging from grievance procedure to legislative issues.

The day began with President and Principal Officer Mike Scott welcoming all of the stewards who “are on the front lines of contract enforcement.” Mike then welcomed Sean O’Brien, IBT Eastern Region Vice President , who spoke to the stewards about the challenges that face our Union and the coming negotiations at UPS.

Following Vice President O’Brien were presentations by Bill Einhorn of the Arbor Group, Iliana Flores of the Teamster Training and Development Department, Brian Tierney, an IBT Communication Project Manager and Florida State Representative Robert Asencio from District 118 . After lunch, stewards broke up into industry specific workshops where they received instruction pertinent to their job sites, contracts or level of experience.

“All of the guest speakers and instructors brought useful information our stewards can take back to their workplaces and we thank them.” said Josh Zivalich, Secretary Treasurer of Teamsters Local 769. “Thanks as well to all of the stewards who took time out of their weekend to better represent our brothers and sisters.” Josh went on to say. “Our Union is strong because of their continued efforts to help their fellow Teamsters.”

Teamsters Local 769 would like to thank all of the guest speakers and instructors who helped make this event a tremendous success and a big thank you to all of our stewards who took the time to participate in this event.
