Principal Officer Jeffrey Padellaro and Business Agent Richard Laughton presented Gerry McGuire with a Teamsters’ watch in recognition of his long time commitment to the Union. Agent Laughton stated, “Gerry is a 36 year member of the Teamsters. He spent over 30 years at Yellow/Roadway and 4 years at Red Star. As a former Shop Steward, Gerry was very helpful during the merger of the two companies. Gerry has always been an active participant in our Local Union and regularly attended our monthly membership meetings. During his long career, he always looked out for the best interests of our members at work. Gerry is a true Teamster. Good luck, my friend.”
Principal Officer Jeff Padellaro and Business Agent Kevin Foley presented James Duso with a Teamsters’ watch in recognition of 31 years as a Union member. James is retiring from UPS where he was a Feeder Driver. Kevin Foley stated,”Jim started his career at UPs as a Package Car Driver in Laconia in 1987. Jim then took advantage of the Feeder Driver opportunity where he remained until retirement. Jim has always been extremely helpful and a great asset to this Union. He represented both the Union and UPS in a professional manner at all times. We hope that he has a very long, safe and healthy retirement and wish him nothing but the best.”
Principal Officer Jeff Padellaro and Business Agent Kevin Foley presented Theodore Burnette with a Teamsters’ watch in recognition of 35 years as a Union member. Ted is retiring from UPS where he worked as a MHT Gateway 22.3 Combo employee at the Manchester Airport. Kevin Foley stated, ” UPS grew because of folks like Ted with his hard work and dedication to the mission. I believe his constructive, thoughtful questions helped and encouraged me to be better at what I do for all our members. I hope his retirement is long and healthy and Ted has the opportunity to do those things he has put off for so many years. We all wish Ted a long and happy retirement.”
Jeff Padellaro thanked all the retirees for their hard work and dedication to their employers and the Union. Jeff stated, ” These members are the faces of our Local; hard working for their employer and strong loyal members for our Local. These two qualities are not mutually exclusive. On behalf of the Local’s Executive Board, I want to wish them a long, healthy and happy retirement. I look forward to seeing them at future General Membership meetings and other Union events where they will always be welcome as part of our Union family.”
60 Years of service honored
Secretary-Treasurer David Laughton presented Paul Porkee Flynn with a commemorative plaque at the March monthly meeting. Porkee’s contributions to our local over the decades can not be measured. He has delivered the Joint Council 10 tractor trailer on countless occasions to organizing events, political rally’s and numerous other functions around New England and the Country. His constant attention to detail on the truck assures that we have a gleaming representation for the public to see. A Thank You seems insignificant for his dedication to our local. So if you see him out on the road make sure you wave and give him a smile because you can rest assured he will be doing the same.

To Our Deceased Brothers and Sisters
They Shall live Forever In Our Hearts
May The Peace And Understanding Of

Local 633 Retirees Chapter
The Retirees Chapter of Local 633 would like to welcome you to our home page.
We are a group of over 350 retired Teamsters who, for more than twenty years have been actively involved in many causes. We participate in many activities alongside Local 633 members as well as several of our own gatherings.
Our board consists of a President, Vice-President, Secretary/ Treasurer, recording secretary and Three Trustees. We hold our meetings at the American Legion- Sweeney Post on Maple Street in Manchester.
Our members actively attend many organizing rallies, informational pickets, political campaigns and legislative events to help strengthen Teamster ideas and create a better life for all.
We also gather for several social functions. We host breakfasts’ in March, June and September as well as a Christmas dinner at Sweeney Post. We also hold several bus trips a year, some of which have included Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, a lobster bake in Boothbay Harbor and the Conway Scenic Railway as destinations.
