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.
