York Labor Day Parade
"Labor Is America"
The York Labor Day Parade will be held on Monday September 7th stepping off promptly at 10:00 AM. This is the 26th year for the York Parade and the Teamsters have always played a large part. Many of our member’s employers who are involved in transportation allow their equipment to be displayed in the parade. Also the Local Union’s truck along with a group of members participates in the parade promoting the Teamsters. This year we are asking our members to show their Teamster Pride, join us in marching in the parade!! We’ll meet at the York Union Hall, all of the Local’s Officers and Business Agents will be there, and then go to the parade staging area together where we will assemble with our members who are driving equipment in the parade. If you would like to attend please plan on being at the York Union Hall by 9:00 AM.

A bright sunny sky, low humidity, and just enough of a breeze to keep the bugs away, one of the best days of this summer, and it was the day of the Local 776 golf outing! 144 of the Local’s best golfers, hackers, and duffers teed it up for some serious competition and bragging rights. Afterward the players were treated to a steak dinner as the winners were announced.
Local President Ed Thompson remarked, “Usually when we have contact with a member whether for a grievance, a pay shortage, or any violation of their contract they are upset. We’ve had a picnic/baseball game gathering, now a golf outing, it’s good to see our members relaxing, having a good time. I’d like to thank Local 776 VP Dave Pogue and BA Ron Hicks for all their time and hard work that they put into making the golf outing a huge success”.

Summer time is always a busy time for moving for professional moving companies as well as the local U-Haul locations. But who do you call when you have approximately 15,000 toys to move? Call the Teamsters! And that’s just what the Marine Corps League based in York, PA did! The league sponsors the Toys For Tots program in the area and had to relocate from a warehouse to a different location across town. Local 776 retiree Dan Eucalano reached out to his nephew; Local 776 Business Agent Bill Olmeda, and got the wheels turning for the Local to supply it’s truck and a driver for the move. Early on Saturday July 25th the move took place. Members of the Marine Corps League were on hand to organize and load all of the toys.
Commented Local President Ed Thompson; “First I would like to thank our driver Rich Stover for taking time on a Saturday to drive our truck in support of the Toys For Tots program. The Teamsters Union is a service organization, service to our members as well as the communities were we work and live. Second I would like to thank Marine Corps League for their involvement in the community. The Toys For Tots program run by the league provides a valuable service to the community at Christmas Time to those who are less fortunate than most of us. The Local Union is proud to offer our support to them”.
