      What's New at IBT 776

      Local 776 held their Membership family picnic on Sunday, June 9th. Knoebels amusement park was the place for a day of food, fun, fellowship, and good times with family, friends, and co-workers. What a way to kick off the unofficial start of summer! Schools out, the weather cooperated, and a day at Knoebels! Members, spouses, kids, grandkids, and retirees filled Knoebels making it one of Local 776’s largest member events. Teamster Pride was on display inside the park as a steady stream of Teamster Members and family members sporting Teamster hats, caps, T-shirts and sweatshirts milled about the park enjoying themselves.

      As is the custom at Local 776 events, tickets were sold for a 50-50 drawing throughout the day to benefit the Local Union’s scholarship fund. The 50/50 winner was Richard Clay, a retired UPS Freight Member. Additionally, there were two television drawings: Ray Mullen, a retiree from Amsted Rail won a 55-inch TV, and Cathy Bolding, a Member at PrimeCare Medical won a 65-inch TV!

      Commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson “It’s a good feeling seeing my Brothers and Sisters, along with their families and friends, enjoying each other, the day and the park. I’m proud of this turnout; it’s you, the members, supporting your Local Union, who fuel that sense of pride. I would like to thank EVERYONE from Local 776 who put so much time and effort into making the picnic a success. Without your support, this event could not happen”.

      To view additional photos from the picnic please visit the Photo Gallery to view “Knoebels Family Picnic 2024.” Thanks to all the members who submitted photos of your day at the park. There is also a gallery titled “Members Knoebels Photos 2024” to view the members’ photos. If you have photos you would like to share send them to info@teamsterslocal776.org and we’ll add them to the Photo Gallery!

      Even the big kids had fun on the rides!

      The kids always enjoy climbing up in the "Big Rig!"

      There were plenty of smiling faces all over the park!

      Richard Clay, retired from UPS Freight, was the 50/50 winner!

      Will you be coming to the picnic this Sunday? Great, we’re looking forward to seeing you. Show your Teamster Pride!, wear your Teamster gear; shirts hats, whatever you have!

      Our photographer will be roaming the park taking pictures of you, your family, your kids, and your friends. He’ll be wearing a Teamsters Local 776 shirt. If you see him but he doesn’t see you just shout to him “Yo Erik!” and he’ll be glad to include you in his photo collection.

      Everyone has a camera, I’m sure you will be taking photos of the day. How about sharing your photos with others? Just email your photos to info@teamsterslocal776.org and we’ll upload your photos to a “Members Photos” section in the Photo Gallery on the Local Union Website, the Mobile App, and as space permits, we’ll print them in the upcoming newsletter!

      See you Sunday at Knoebels!

      Drivers at United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) in Harrisburg, Pa., have voted nearly unanimously to join Teamsters Local 776. The 75-worker group overcame a nasty union-busting campaign by the food distributor, taking their fight to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to beat back efforts to outsource their jobs to notorious nonunion company J.B. Hunt. Local 776 Organizer Ashley Cerzullo worked tirelessly along with attorney Jason Weinstock to insure the employees had a vote for their future. The duo presented the Union’s case to the NLRB at a 2-day hearing in Philadelphia Pa on April 4th and 5th. A UNFI driver, Terrell Trasher, testified on behalf of the drivers at UNFI Harrisburg Pa.  The Labor Board ruled in the Union’s favor on May 16th, assuring the Local Union that an election would be held on May 22nd and 23rd.

       “Organizing to become Teamsters helped bring us together for the greater cause. With Teamsters representation, we are now more confident knowing that everyone will have a say in our future,” said Carlos Lugaro, a UNFI driver who helped lead the organizing effort. Lugaro and his co-workers are seeking a strong Teamsters contract that will improve wages, health care and retirement benefits, job security, and working conditions.

      “Despite challenges, UNFI drivers at the Harrisburg facility were committed to becoming Teamsters since day one. They refused to fall for the company’s union-busting tactics and stood arm-in-arm with Teamsters Local 776 to fight back. Workers proved to the NLRB that UNFI was trying to outsource their jobs to a third party to break up union organizing efforts,” said Ed Thompson, President of Local 776.

      The organizing victory in Harrisburg is part of a national worker-led movement to unionize UNFI and follows recent wins in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Washington. In May alone, more than 250 UNFI workers joined the Teamsters at three different UNFI locations. Since 2022, over 1,500 workers at the company have become Teamsters nationwide.

      “Drivers in Harrisburg showed courage and put it all on the line to secure this crucial victory. UNFI workers know that the Teamsters are relentless in our fight for a better workplace. This victory in Harrisburg is just another example of workers’ resolve to take control of their future. We will not rest until every UNFI worker in this country has the representation and respect they deserve,” said Tom Erickson, Director of the Teamsters Warehouse Division.
