Teamsters feed 550 Gillig members at annual BBQ

The Teamsters’ annual barbecue at Gillig had to be a 2-day event (held on April 18 and 19), due to the large number of members who work at the Livermore-based bus manufacturer (over 550!)

Business Reps Steve Beck and Scott Gonsalves trucked out the Local’s barbecue and prepared hamburgers and hot dogs for as many members who wanted to eat. Along with lunch, they brought out the 401(k) rep on Monday, April 18, to answer any last-minute tax time questions.

In addition to Gonsalves, Beck wanted to give special thanks to Business Reps Jonathan Pinney, Johnny Gallegos, and Steven Lua, and shop stewards Robert Terry, Lupe Pinedo, Joe Bulhoes, Lyle Funderburk and Joel Bellison, who together made it possible to serve more than 250 people within 45 minutes on both days.
