Local 853 comes through for Teamsters Assistance Program, again!

The Teamsters Assistance Program offers a range of programs for members from drug and alcohol counseling and support to help navigating any number of social and mental health services. Each year, TAP has a golf tournament and a raffle to raise money.

TAP challenges the Locals and business agents to sell the most tickets, and for eight years in a row, since the award was first given, Local 853 has won the challenge. The prize for the Local that has raised the most money is named for long-time Local 315 leader Vince Aloise, father of Secretary-Treasurer Rome Aloise. “It makes me proud each year to win this award,” Aloise said.

Winning the Business Agent sales award was Ray Torres, who personally sold $1,900 worth of tickets.

Congratulations to Local 853 and to Ray for stepping up for TAP.
