lets do this


Today we learned top TPP officials got big bonuses from banks. We also learned more polls are showing American voters overwhelmingly blame trade deals like the TPP for the loss of good manufacturing jobs. Do we need any more reasons to participate in tomorrow's Teamster Day of Action? Teamsters are calling members of Congress to tell them to oppose a Fast Track bill that will make it easy to pass job-killing deals like the TPP. Remember to go to teamster.org tomorrow, where a screen will pop up and tell you how to make the call.

More Cameras installed in Pressroom

I was made aware of the fact that an additional 18 cameras were installed in the reelroom and they are all supposedly facing benches where pressroom employees sit during production. Be aware that whenever in the shop,  management is watching.  Believe me,  they aren't watching to see if you're doing a good job,  your being watched so that footage can be used against you. 
Big Brother lives in our shop!

 GCC/IBT LOCAL 140-N, RECORDING SECRETARY, EDWARD PADGETT
Look at what I found on the Teamster Newspaper, Magazine Electronic Media website.

This photo along with the photo of Gerald Leavenworth were taken in West Covina at Local 63 for the Teamster "WHO WE ARE" publication. Gerald's (aka LEVI) photos was ultimately used to highlight the shops and industries represented by the Graphic Communications Conference section of the infoguide.

Local 140n news


                      LOCAL 140N    News Flash

This is just a reminder. This is just a few things we can do to protect ourselves.

1.    Do your (SOPS) standard operating procedures

2.    Ask for representations every time management wants to talk to you. If they say no tell your Rep. and do what you are asked

3.    Keep your own records (web breaks and what units they are on)

4.    Always Hang Rolls With A Partner, NEVER HANG ROLLS ALONE!

5.    Work steady don’t hurry

6.    Work safe

7.    Come to meetings


These are a couple labor charges we have filed

#1 failed to comply with camera info request

#2 Vacation being counted as a sick day


Please do not sign any petition unless you fully understand what you are signing. Tell your Rep.


Really! Here is some of the consequences of a decertification .

#1 Loss of vacation time

#2 loss of hours of work (29 hours or less ) means Obama care (ACA affordable care act)

#3 loss of pay

#4 loss of sick days

Who knows else ? protect your selves now !

Unity mean strength and a way and means to do just that
