Teamsters Local Union No. 464, the oldest chartered Teamsters Local in Canada, represents workers in the dairy and bakery industries as well as office workers, mechanics and drivers [tanker drivers and independent franchise drivers]. We are a progressive Local Union which believes in strong contracts for our workers: always focussing on decent wages, benefits and pensions. We excel at administering these contracts once negotiated. The majority of our members enjoy what is regarded as being one of the best pension plans in North America. We are a membership driven Local and recognize the necessity of protecting workers.

Testimonial

“I look after a lot of members in a very big plant. For years I had to fight for them by myself with no help at all from any of the Union’s representatives or Officers. This changed completely once Bobby, Bob and Paul were in office. Now I have access to my reps 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  They’re always there to back me up.” 

- Darrell Lawres – Chief Shop Steward. Saputo, Sperling

"I have been a member of Teamsters Local 464 for 23 years and have seen many of the executives come and go. Some of the previous executives nearly ran the Local into bankruptcy including losing our pension.  Bobby Kornhass, Bob Ryder and Paul Barton brought us back from the brink. Since they took over in 2000, we at Dairyland (Saputo) have had the best contracts I have seen since I have been there."

- Randy Onyschak

"I was there when we brought the Union in. The first-time contract they won for us was unbelievable. It changed the quality of my life. I am now a Shop Steward and enjoy working with my Union and looking after my fellow workers. "
