Martin Luther King Remembered

On the night before he died, Martin Luther King gave a speech about the dignity of labor. It still rings true. He was in Memphis, Tenn., supporting sanitation workers' rights to respect and a decent wage. He said: “Whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity and it has worth.” Dr.

  • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

    Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

  • On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It’s important to note that many companies file Chapter 11 in an effort to reorganize their debt and capital structure to facilitate a sale to a strategic/industry buyer or to a financial buyer with the goal to continue operating its core lines of business – and one of those options appears to be the case here.   

    The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

  • 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!

Truck Roadeo 2014
Updated On: Jul 22, 2014

There were 33 Teamster Drivers that competed in the 2014 Truck Roadeo. Teamsters Local 492, which is a sponsor of the Roadeo, would like to take this time to thank everyone that competed. It takes a lot of time, effort, skill, knowledge and practice to compete in these events, and we all know that Teamster Drivers are the best in the industry; it’s great to be able to show off those skills. We would also like to thank those that volunteered and to all the families that go out to the Roadeo to support these drivers.

Unfortunately, for some reason, some of the family members were told they could not take pictures of the event this year, so we only have one photo so far, and it is from the Awards Ceremony. So if you have pictures you would like to submit please notify us by clicking here.   

ABF had 16 Drivers that competed which included Craig Arellano, Gerald Benavidez, Ricky Lucas, Carl Marquez, James Morgan, Ronald Pacheco and Kirk Weis.

1st place in Sleeper, Ralph Garcia                      

This was Ralph’s 12th win in a row; he also won the National Championship last year.

1st Place in Tanker, Joseph Carrillo                  

Joseph was rookie of the year last year;

2nd place in the 5 Axle, Charlie Estrada

2nd place in Flatbed, Duane Oldfield

2nd place in Twins, Chad Sullins            

3rd place in the 4 axle, Robert Delgado

3rd place in the 5 axle Tito Torres

3rd place in Flatbed Michael Contreras

3rd place in Straight Truck, Donald Woods

ABF won the two categories eligible for in the Fleet Safety Awards which were the 100,000 to 500,000 miles for their city operation and over 5,000,001 miles for the 3rd time in a row for the line haul operation.

ABF also had 2 Drivers of the Month, George Mackey for May and Ralph Garcia for June.

Debbie Archer was selected as the Volunteer of the Year. She has been by Randy Archers side (ABF Line Haul Manger) at the Championships for all 14 years he has been involved.  She truly loves making team members and their families feel like they are part of the family. She also helped with the Safety Management Council tents, trailer, etc. Thanks Debbie for all you do! Thanks also to Retiree Robert Aragon for volunteering again this year.  

Update July 22, 2014- Brother Duane Oldfield who had placed second in the Flatbed division will now be competing in the Nationals along with Ralph Garcia (Sleeper division) and Joseph Carrillo (Tanker division), all from ABF, as the driver who had finished ahead of him subsequently resigned from his employment which disqualified him from further competition.  The National competition will be held in Pittsburgh, PA. the week of August 12th, 2014.  Good Luck to the three of you!  Represent yourselves, your Union and your Employer with class and professionalism!!  Bring back the “Gold”.

Sysco NM had 3 drivers compete including Aaron Clanan who took home “Rookie of the Year”, also Sonny Mariano and Mario Martinez.

UPS-TeamOne (TDI/SCS/Sara Lee Bakeries) had 4 drivers participate; Steve Lopez, Cameron Misner, Jose Seijas, and Brian Thais.   

YRC Freight had 10 drivers that competed including Michael McAfee who took home 2nd place in 5 axle sleeper, also James Aragon, Stanley Aragon, Ronald Masawiestewa, Victor Moralez, Charles Perez, Jack Rojas, George Ronquillo, Frank Sandoval, and Joseph Wright.
