For members working in the print and graphic arts industry, check out our Teamsters of the Graphic Arts newsletter.
Your Business Representative, Brian Earl, will be distributing print copies of the newsletter in the shops over the next few weeks.
These new Teamsters come to us as the result of a merger that was approved by the members of Graphic Communications International Union Local 767-M and the members of Teamsters Local 117.
Your Union’s new members work in all craft and skill areas in the printing and publishing industry. Every day, they help print, produce and design numerous publications, including the Seattle Times.
They operate web and sheet-fed, offset, letterpress, and other specialty presses, in shops like Overnight Printing in SODO and Capitol City Press in Olympia. They handle binding, finishing and shipping of finished products. They are also journalists, graphic artists, typesetters, sales people and support staff.
