On This Day in 1695
In what could be considered the first workers’ compensation agreement in America, pirate Henry Morgan pledges his underlings 600 pieces of eight or six slaves to compensate for a lost arm or leg. Also part of the pirate’s code, reports Roger Newell: shares of the booty were equal regardless of race or sex, and shipboard decisions were made collectively.

We want your video questions for presidential candidates
Nov. 6, 2019 Deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov. 22 ... The Teamsters Union is hosting a Presidential Candidate Forum on Dec. 7, 2019, featuring several of the leading Democratic contenders. We want the candidates to hear directly from Teamsters members – that’s why you’re being asked to submit a video with your question for the candidates. Details here.

Joe Reichert, Teamsters Local 355 retirees club officer, activist
Nov. 7, 2019 Joseph Thomas Reichert, Sr., vice president of Local 355’s Associated Retired Members (A.R.M.), passed away Oct. 31, 2019, after a long battle with cancer. A Teamster for nearly 50 years, Joe retired from Sysco in 2000. He was a familiar face around the Baltimore union hall every Tuesday, always ready to offer assistance to Local 355 officers and staff – whether it was mowing the lawn, changing light bulbs, or walking a picket line. “Besides being a dedicated Teamster, Joe was a great friend and colleague,” said Bob Eney, president of the retirees club. “He always went out of his way to be helpful and friendly to everyone. The A.R.M. executive board and I send our deepest condolences to his family. We will always have fond memories of our brother.” On behalf of Local 355 members, the Local 355 Executive Board also extended its deepest sympathy to Joe’s family on his passing. “Joe was a long term, loyal member of Teamsters Local 355. He was active in his union, was our friend and brother. He will be deeply missed.” Joe is survived by his wife, Mildred, three children, seven grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. Godspeed, Brother Joe.

Since World War I, Teamster members have been involved in all our nation’s wars… Continued at Teamsters

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette lays off 30 Local 211 Teamsters
Nov. 15, 2019 Block Communications, Inc.’s unconscionable economic assault on unions at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette continues with the illegal laying off Sunday of about 30 Teamsters and three pressmen who are also Teamsters. Those let go have decades of service to the paper yet have only been offered a paltry maximum of six weeks severance pay. In keeping with its cruel tactics, the Toledo-based, Block family-owned media company made sure that most of the Teamsters who remain were put on part-time status, meaning they will lose their health care benefits… Teamsters

Its shares ended Tuesday’s trading at $9.73… Chicago Sun-Times

Teamsters working to secure bipartisan pension solution
Nov. 21, 2019 The Teamsters are aware of a new multiemployer pension reform proposal just rolled out by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and are actively reviewing the proposal and its impact on Teamster funds. The Teamsters have been working with Congress to find a bipartisan solution that best protects the hard-earned pensions of its retirees and workers.
