So as a result, companies don’t prioritize it, and nearly a quarter of the nation’s workforce doesn’t receive any paid time off, according to an updated report by the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR)… teamster.org

Freeman succeeds Tedeschi as GCC president
June 4, 2019 George Tedeschi, president of the IBT’s Graphic Communications Conference, retired June 2 after 60 years of union service. He was succeeded by Kurt Freeman, a highly regarded labor veteran who became secretary-treasurer/vice president of the GCC/IBT in 2017. Tedeschi, 79, made his retirement official at the North American Newspaper Conference, the GCC/IBT division representing craft workers and journalists in the publishing industry. He played a central role in the 2005 merger of the former Graphic Communications International Union with the Teamsters, a move he called “one of the most important accomplishments of my career.” He will continue as an IBT international vice president-at-large… Teamsters  (Note: Local 355 represents Baltimore Sun members who are among the publishing workers in the GGC/IBT Division.)
