Local 251 is taking action to increase union representation and fill shop steward vacancies.
Where resignations and vacancies left members without shop steward representation, we have recruited volunteers and made temporary shop steward appointments.
In the new Local 251, every member has the right to elect their shop steward.
Members can call for a shop steward election by turning in a petition for an election that is signed by over 30 percent of the Teamsters in a bargaining unit.
Voting will be fair and transparent with observers present.
