I'm Standing With Hostess Workers, Will You?

Wall street vultures are blaming workers for getting rid of your sweets-and that's just not right.

What's happening here is a classic Bain Capital-style assault-blame the little guy to cover the greedy corporate policies that are gutting the middle class.

It's not just happening to the workers who make the great products Americans love. What's happening at Hostess is happening to workers all over this country. It's wrong. And it has to stop.

Hostess workers believe in their company, and we need to stand with them -- sign our pledge to support workers, not greedy CEOs who will cut and run for a quick buck.

General Meeting Reminder


GCC/IBT Local 140-N will be holding it's year end meeting on Monday, November 19, 2102 at 2:00 pm at our Hall located at 750 Stanford Ave. Los Angeles Ca. 90021. Parking is around the corner, in back, follow the signs.

On hand will be Attorneys specializing in Labor, Workers Compensation and FMLA to deliver presentations regarding their areas of legal expertise and following our meeting, to answer your questions.

Mr. Larry Mitchell from the Interlocal Pension Fund will also be in attendance to share information on the Fund and hopefully inspire the remaining members to invest. There is no other plan like it in the world and we are the only organization offering such a diverse and safe investment exclusive of any employer money! That is why our plan did not suffer as did most Retirement Funds because WE control the fund, NOT the employer!

With the approval of the IRS, the Interlocal Pension Fund is now available for investing to our Teamster Brothers and Sisters. That simply means, there is an influx of new money being invested in the fund and that insures its longevity for when you retire. Not in, get in!

There are many topics to discuss, like Dues restructuring, a fair amount for everyone, Grievance and Arbitration, what cases are pending and whats being done. Vacant Board Positions, this is your Local, get involved! etc. These subjects and more will all be covered at this meeting so don't miss it!

Apprentices and Part-timers are invited to attend! 

NO FREERIDERS OR BECK OBJECTORS ALLOWED!

BUY AMERICAN PRODUCTS!

"He, therefore, who is now against domestic manufacture, must be for reducing us either to dependence on that foreign nation, or to be clothed in skins, and to live like wild beasts in dens and caverns. I am not one of these; experience has taught me that manufactures are now as necessary to our independence as to our comfort; and if those who quote me as of a different opinion, will keep pace with me in purchasing nothing foreign where an equivalent of domestic fabric can be obtained, without regard to difference of price, it will not be our fault if we do not soon have a supply at home equal to our demand, and wrest that weapon of distress from the hand which has wielded it."

 The Letters of Thomas Jefferson: 1743-1826. To Benjamin Austin Monticello, January 9, 1816
"Thanks Brother Laird"

HEY GOVERNOR ROMNEY, PAY ATTENTION, STOP SHIPPING AMERICAN JOBS OVERSEAS WHERE YOU KEEP YOUR MONEY! 

RE-ELECT PRESIDENT OBAMA ON NOVEMBER 6
 GET OUT THE VOTE !
