Congratulations to Teamster 853 President Steven Lua, Vice-President Ray Torres, and Business Agent and Trustee Gloria Segura as they were sworn in this week to sit on the South Bay Labor Council.
The meeting was joined by Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, who represents the 18 District, and Congressman Jimmy Panetta, who represents the 19th District in the House of Representatives. Both gave a solid message to labor and all working people to remember that diversity is our strength, but unity is our power.
Labor Councils are where politics and labor meet. They are local organizations that work with state and community organizations to improve the lives of working families. They conduct campaigns at the local, state, and national levels.
Having three additional Teamster 853 Members on the Council ensures that working women and men in the Teamster organization have a strong voice in guiding local politics that affect their work.
