Local Union members present at our April general membership meetings in Baltimore and Salisbury unanimously approved a motion to award Honorary Lifetime Membership posthumously to Kenny Elgert, the beloved son of (Local 355 Business Agent) Chip and Barbara Elgert, who passed away suddenly in March. Kenny was a smiling face at many Local 355 functions over the years. An energetic and spirited supporter of our union, Kenny loved to accompany his dad to meetings, picket lines, charity fundraisers, steward banquets, and other Teamster events. He was a cheerful and devoted friend to many in the Local 355 family, and his dedication to the Local are acknowledged with the Award. Photo: Kenny, third from right, was a regular supporter on the picket line in 2016 during the union's unfair labor practices strike against US Foods.

In a random drawing from 21 submitted applications for the 2019 Local 355 Scholarship Awards, the winners are:

Tyler Samsel, son of Thomas Samsel (Sun Papers) 
Ashley Goudy, daughter of Bill Goudy (UPS)

We’ll introduce them to you in our next newsletter.
