      What's New at IBT 776

      Throughout the Labor Day weekend, there were various stay-at-home activities in the area. The York/Adams County Central Labor Council-AFL-CIO sponsored a fishing derby at York’s Kiwanis Lake. Local youth tried their fishing skills (with a little luck!) to catch the largest fish on Labor Day morning. Youth ages 1-15 were eligible and were divided into two age groups: 1-8 years of age, and 9-15 years of age.

      Local 776 Business Agent Dave Wolf was on hand, helping out where he was needed and taking plenty of photos. It was a hot morning out on the lake, with all that casting and reeling going on everyone was thirsty, so Dave had a cooler full of bottled water on ice for the kids.

      Once the derby ended the kid’s fish were counted and trophies were awarded. But all of the kids were winners; to assure that no one left empty-handed a new fishing rod and reel were presented to each participant! Local 776 BA Bill Olmeda scoured the York area for a good deal on a quantity of rods and reels to purchase and the Local Union donated 15 rod/reel combinations to the derby! The stay-at-home celebration continued with vendors, food, and music set up around the lake.

      Commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson; “Thanks to Dave and Bill for taking the time to make sure the fishing derby was a success and the kids all had a good time!” “It’s always about the kids, they are our future!”

      All smiles for the fish he landed!

      A trophy and a smile!

      Walking out of there with both hands full!

      Pick a rod, any rod!

      Nominations for Local 776 officers and Business Agents were held on Sunday, September 10, 2023, at the Local 776 Union Hall in Harrisburg.

Once nominations were opened to the floor the incumbent Officers and Business Agents, collectively known as the Thompson-Hicks Slate-Teamsters for Teamsters, were each nominated, seconded, and then the nomination was accepted by each candidate. Mr. Gross called a second time for nominations from the floor. Hearing none Mr. Gross called a third and final time for nominations from the floor. Hearing no nominations after the third call Mr. Gross declared nominations closed. He then declared the Thompson-Hicks Slate Candidates winners of the election by acclamation.

      Never Forget:

      The cowardly acts perpetrated against our country by those who seek to destroy us and our way of life.

      The innocent men, women, and children who lost their lives on this tragic day; only for being in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

      Our courageous first responders; who ran toward the disasters to offer help to those in need and perished while trying to help and serve their fellow Americans.

      Our Country may have been down, and many would have crumbled under such crushing blows, but while we watched in horror as the events unfolded before our eyes, our strength and resolve grew and we became a determined people to punish those who promote terrorism and to make sure this tragedy would never happen again.

      Most of us can recall where we were that tragic day, what we were doing as we first got word of the attacks on our country, and stood in shock as we watched the Twin Towers in New York City crumble. Please take a moment today to pause and remember those who perished on 9/11. Remember our first responders who face danger daily, and finally remember and thank our armed forces; both here at home and deployed around the world ensuring that America remains the Land of the Free and the home of the brave.

      Despite billions in bailouts and concessions, Yellow shut its doors on July 30, 2022, and it filed for bankruptcy on August 6, 2023. Yellow's closure has resulted in job losses for hundreds of Local 776 members, and thousands of Teamsters nationally. The loss of a job is not just a loss of income; it is often the loss of an identity. For these losses, please accept our deepest sympathies. Although you may have lost your position at Yellow, you have not lost your Union Brothers' and Sisters' solidarity. While we cannot undo the damage Yellow caused, we can keep you informed and, to the extent possible, help you try to get paid for what you are owed. That is why we have created this FAQ fact sheet.
