  • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

Recording Secretary
Joseph Carrillo


Brother Joseph Carrillo started his Teamster career at ABF in 2007 where he says he began to understand what it meant to be a member of the Teamsters. Joseph realized a new found appreciation for the Union while working as a non-union fuel hauler which began in 2008 after he was laid off from ABF, he then became more active with the Union after his layoff ended in 2011. Brother Carrillo stated, “The non-union Company (Western Refining) that I worked for during my layoff, solidified for me the need for a Union.” Upon his return to ABF after being recalled, he joined the Local 492 Teamster organizing team in the effort to organize Western Refining and had the great pleasure of teaching them the value of coming together to form a Union.

In 2013, Brother Carrillo got involved with the Annual NM Teamster Appreciation Day Event and worked his way up to chairman of the committee for the event and has been serving in that capacity since. Joseph is a true leader; he and his team of volunteers have revolutionized the annual event, from a small get together, to the huge production it is today. “I'm glad to have been there to see the event grow from about 150 people in 2013 to almost 600 members and their families in 2016,” said Joseph. Brother Carrillo volunteers countless hours of his own time organizing NMTAD each year and continues to improve it. Next time you see him, thank Brother Joseph Carrillo for his selfless dedication to your Union!

In March of 2014, Joseph began serving as an Alternate Steward, and serves in that capacity to this day. In 2015, Brother Carrillo joined the fight against the anti-union legislation, so called “right to work” (RTW) that was being pushed by our New Mexico Governor. Joseph spent two and a half months educating our fellow 492 brother and sister 492 members about RTW and worked with the many other Union crafts in NM to also educate the New Mexico legislators on the pitfalls of RTW, which was successfully squashed.  

On October 8th, 2016, Brother Carrillo was appointed to the Teamsters Local 492 Executive Board as a Trustee and was elected 492 Trustee in December of 2017. On January 1, 2020, Joseph began serving as the Teamsters Local 492 Recording Secretary. “I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to be a representative of the New Mexico Teamsters in our strong Local 492!” - Joseph Carrillo 10-8-16
