    Today in Labor History
    Dec. 6, 1907
    At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

  • Teamster Vote 2020 Survey
    Posted On: Jul 16, 2019

    Working Americans are facing numerous challenges. Despite top line economic numbers that may look favorable, many workers’ paychecks are not growing. Add to that concerns surrounding pensions and health care benefits, uncertainty looms for the U.S. middle class.

    That’s why the 2020 is so very important for this union and its members’ future. The Teamsters are committed to making our presence known and demanding that presidential candidates make commitments that are important to our membership. That starts with input from our members.

    “The Teamsters want to hear from members about what their top issues and concerns are as the nation prepares for this pivotal election,” Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa said. “This union will be putting on a full-court press to demand that any candidate for president listen to our members and address our concerns. The Teamster 2020 survey is an important step as we hear directly from our members on what issues they’ll be voting on.”

    “Visibility will be key to maximizing the voice of rank-and-file Teamsters,” said Lawrence Geho, president of Local 888. “So please fill out the survey to let union leadership know your thoughts about what issues mean the most to you. We want all our members to feel they are a part of the process.”

    Together, Teamster brothers and sisters can ensure that this great union plays a critical role in electing a president that will truly stand with 0ur members and the nation’s workers.
