Cars to be sold in sealed bid auction.
UPDATED April 14, 2014: For years, Local 251 officials maintained a fleet of union cars that were used by the Business Agents but paid for with your dues money. We don’t believe this is the right policy for our Union and we are making a u-turn.
Union representatives now drive their own cars and receive a modest car allowance to compensate them for wear and tear. This is standard procedure in Teamster local unions and it will save you dues money.
Teamsters Local 251 is selling the fleet of cars used by the old administration and putting the funds to work for the membership.
We are selling the cars off through a sealed bid auction of the cars.
Any member of Local 251 is eligible to submit bids for the cars listed in the announcement of the auction here. The car will be awarded to the highest bidder as long as that bid is above the value of the car.
The sealed bids will be opened at the next monthly meeting, Sunday April 27, 2014.
