Teamsters Local 929 4th of July party

 

I had the opportunity to speak to Govenor Wolf up in Harrisburg about keeping the Liquor in Philadelphia.I also speak to him about the $3 hundred million dollar port expansion project which will create in the near future, many union family substaining jobs in the area.

 

On Tuesday, May 29, 2018 PhilaPort and government officials formally welcomed the first of five-new super post-Panamax cranes to Packer Avenue Marine Terminal.


As part of the Port Development Plan, the cranes are a huge milestone for the Port and the arrival of the next three is highly anticipated. We thank Governor Wolf and all those who have supported our Port.


Teamsters Local 929 Members stand to benefit when the cranes become fully operational. Many of our companies rely on the Ports ability to off-load cargo that is delivered to their warehouses and then to their customers.

 

On Tuesday Teamsters Local 929 gave Senator Casey a tour of the Regional Produce Cooperative Corporation, "The Food Center". The Senator had time to visit with the Local 929 Members and a few of the store owners.

 

On Saturday April 28th Teamsters Local 929 sponsored an event "Sound the Alarm". This is a program that the Red Cross has in place to install smoke detectors in homes. The Red Cross proposes to install 1 million smoke detectors in homes across the country in 2018. The April 28th event was the kick-off of the program in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. Teamster Local 929 Members paired up with Volunteers from the Red Cross and Philadelphia Firefighters and went to homes in the neighborhood of the Union Hall. In all , over 50 Teamsters Local 929 Members made up 19 teams to hit the streets. We were able to install 167 smoke detectors in over 100 homes on Saturday. It was a great day !!
