Amid the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic, the safety of Teamsters Local No. 63 members and our staff is our number one concern. In cooperation with the local, state and federal levels, we have made the following changes to the office procedures:
OUR OFFICES ARE NOW CLOSED TO WALK-INs
Our members are important to us and we are here to assist you. The Local Union will have office staff working and assisting our members Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. If you need to speak to your Business Representative and/or the personnel that handles your Union Dues, you may call the office and they will transfer you to the prospective party. Please be sure to leave a message and they will return your call. Our number is: (909) 877-4760.
The COVID-19 can only be slowed down by ALL OF US being proactive by staying HOME if possible, staying 6 feet away from each other, limiting our interactions with more than 10 person gatherings and washing our hands. Let’s all do our part.
Thank you and be SAFE,
TEAMSTERS LOCAL NO. 63

For 21 years, Teamsters President James P. Hoffa had dedicated his life to being a voice for working families in our country. His hard work and resilience has ensured that our members continue to see improvements in wages and benefits earned, along with having their voice within the workplace be valued by their employers.
As the Teamsters moves forward, we know that we are able to do so thanks to the foundation that Mr. Hoffa set for us all. Thank you for all your hard work, Mr. Hoffa... #TeamsterStrong

His brother, Roy, has setup a GoFundMe account to help pay for funeral expenses, Frank's daughters schooling and for attorney fees.
Randy Cammack, Secretary-Treasurer for Teamsters Local 63 and President for the Teamsters Joint Council 42, released the following statement:
“Teamsters Local 63 proudly stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at UFCW, who are fighting for the wages and benefits that they deserve. Our communities depend on our grocery workers and there is no reason why they should not benefit from the profits that they help generate for the corporations who they work for. If UFCW calls for a strike, we strongly encourage every Teamster to respect the picket line.”
The national contract will increase wages, protect benefits and create thousands of new full-time jobs. Economic improvements in the contract are retroactive to August 1, 2018. The company has been notified of the ratification and will attempt to implement required raises during the next weekly pay period.
The UPS contract includes wage increases of $4.15 per hour for both full-time and part-time workers over the term of the contract and increases the part-time start rate by $2.50 retroactively to August 1, 2018. All full-time and part-time UPS Teamsters will continue to receive health insurance for the member and their family without paying premiums. The agreement also strengthens grievance enforcement for harassment with a sitting arbitrator and monetary penalties, and a new procedure to make it easier to get on or off the overtime list.
The agreement requires UPS to create 5,000 new full-time jobs during the term of the agreement, including a minimum of 2,000 Article 43 driver jobs, and a new combination driver classification that addresses the changes brought on through the e-commerce revolution.
