What does a Local 117 Teamster look like? We look like hard working, strong, essential members of our communities.
Like James Borum, a truck driver for Sysco, who raised money to help a co-worker buy cancer treatment equipment.
Like Suzette Dickerson, who worked hard at the King County Prosecutors’ office, then volunteered both as a track coach and at her son’s many school activities.
Like Cid Avellaneda, a USB route salesman, who came here from Peru and now fosters needy children from other countries and takes his family on missions to orphanages.
Like Silvia Washington, who came here from Germany, adopted and raised 4 children on her own, and who now trains sled dogs when she’s not busy working for the Department of Corrections.
What Teamsters Look Like is new campaign to recognize Teamsters who go that extra mile at work, who help out fellow employees, or who give back to the community.
We’ll be highlighting Teamster 117 members every few days over the next few months – the best way to stay updated is to like our new Facebook page.
