On September 8, 2017, members of the Merrimack Facilities Department voted overwhelmingly to have the Teamsters be their exclusive bargaining representative. Field Representative Roger Travers reports that this group maintains the facilities and grounds of Merrimack College. Merrimack College’s grounds and facilities accommodate 3,500 full-time undergraduate students and 575 graduate students. 75% of Merrimack College students reside on campus. Under the direction of Principal Officer Jeff Padellaro, Field Representatives Roger Travers and Keith Judge successfully educated and organized this group of hard working individuals.
Welcome to the Teamsters Local 633 family!
On September 19, 2017, the bus drivers of STA Londonderry stated clearly to their employer, by an overwhelming vote, that they wanted to join the Teamsters in Driving UP Standards at their location. Under the direction of Principal Officer Jeffrey Padellaro, Field Representative Roger Travers assisted the group in organizing to become part of the Teamster family. The Teamsters will now negotiate with STA for these drivers to receive comparable terms and conditions of employment as their Union brother and sisters receive. Field Representative Keith Judge and President Dennis Caza assisted Roger Travers in the organizing effort.
Jeffrey Padellaro welcomes our new brothers and sisters from STA in Londonderry, and looks forward to meeting them during our upcoming Union Meetings. The Londonderry location employs approximately 45 drivers.
“Local 633 had a strong showing at the Annual 2017 Labor Day Breakfast held at the Saint George Orthodox Cathedral in Manchester,” according to Jeff Padellaro. Senator Maggie Hassan, pictured above, greeted old friends at the Breakfast. Pictured with Senator Hassan are Principal Officer Jeff Padellaro; Business Agent Rick Laughton; Business Agent Kevin Foley; Field Representatives Keith Judge and Roger Travers; and Trustees Scott Gove and James Petrillo.
The Breakfast was attended by labor leaders along with politicians representing local and state government. Jeff Padellaro commented that without union representation the working class can not keep pace with the rising cost of living. Without representation, we would have working men and women of this country facing the accountants and lawyers representing corporate interests, with the worker standing alone, without the protection of the Union to act as a shield against arbitrary and capricious actions of the corporation.
