Teamsters Lead Buffalo Snow Storm Relief Efforts

Teamsters Local 264 Members Come To The Aid Of Fellow Residents

(BUFFALO, N.Y.) – Teamsters from across the Buffalo, N.Y., area are taking action to provide relief and much needed services after a powerful storm that dumped seven feet of snow on western New York.

“Our members went above and beyond. They worked around the clock plowing roads; selecting and delivering bread, milk and other essential food products to local stores and supermarkets; delivering gas and diesel to service stations; and staffing the correctional facilities,” said Brian Dickman, President of Teamsters Local 264 in Cheektowaga, N.Y. “Our thanks go out to all members of Teamsters Local 264, both in the public and private sector, who worked tirelessly to make a difference for the people in our community.”

The historic storm over Buffalo, N.Y., last week claimed 13 lives, caused damage to many homes and businesses and left residents stranded for days. As temperatures now rise and the area braces for flooding, Teamsters Local 264 members are continuing to help their community get back to normal.

“Everyone is chipping in and doing their part to put the safety and well-being of others ahead of their own,” said John Randolph, a nine-year veteran deputy sheriff with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and Vice President of Teamsters Local 264. “A lot of Teamsters worked triple shifts so they could help their fellow brothers and sisters get home to their families during the storm.”

“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.”

"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."
