On This Day in 2003
The Northeast of the United States and Canada experienced a massive blackout, which affected 50 million people. Initially concerned that it could be a terrorist attack, it soon became clear that it was the failure of Ohio-based First Energy Corporation to maintain its portion of the electrical grid. In a statement following the costly blackout, the Utility Workers Union of America called on Ohio’s Public Utilities Commission to investigate the industry’s maintenance practices and urged the state legislature to revise its deregulation laws that led to lax standards and mass layoffs of line workers.

Local voter registration drive underway
Posted On: Aug 31, 2012


Aug. 2, 2012 | Efforts are under way at Teamster locals and Joint Councils nationwide to register voters and increase participation in this year's election. It is especially important for all of us to be voters this fall because opponents of labor are still mounting an all-out war on us. During the month of August we'll be visiting your shop where you'll have the opportunity to not only register to vote, but also sign up for DRIVE and Maryland Teamsters PAC. The schedule for our larger shops is here. If your shop isn't on the list, contact your business agent at 410-566-5700 for schedule and more information.
