Teamsters History Project

The Teamsters History Project is looking for history, photos, or stories from the Local Union, as well as preparing a history book on ‘Teamster Participation During Major Conflicts’ to honour the sacrifice of thousands of Teamsters who served in the American and Canadian Armed Forces throughout history.


As part of this book, a list of all casualties incurred by Teamster members will be included. Much of this information has been drawn from The International Teamster Magazine. Unfortunately, not all battle fatalities were published in the Magazine, as not all Local Unions reported casualties to the International Union. In order to give credit to the many Teamster service-members who paid the price for freedom, the Project needs to acquire an accurate count of all casualties.


For further information, please contact Shelby Tamas 604-876-6464 or team464admin@telus.net


We greatly appreciate your assistance on this project. Thank you for your time and support.

Testimonial

"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. "

- Paul Landrecht - Shop Steward. Island Farms Dairy.

"I was employed for many years at a Teamster company that was shut down due to the economy. Because of my age, I was worried about starting over. Bobby, Bob and Paul not only negotiated a much better severance package than was in the contract, but they also went the extra mile and got me on at one of their other companies with an even better contract.They continued to help me even though it wasn't their job to."

- Armando Borean

“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
