Join us as hundreds of Teamster 117 members gather together at our Union Hall in Tukwila on Thursday, December 16, 2020 for our annual raffle drawing.  

This is a fun event and a great way to connect to your Union! Dozens of prizes are awarded each year including electronics, power tools, bottles of wine, gift cards, televisions sets, and best of all...NUTS!  All of the gifts are purchased from companies with whom Local 117 has a bargaining relationship.

Parking is tight so carpool if you can and try to arrive early.

If you work swing shift or graveyard and are unable to attend, be sure to stop by the Union Hall during the day on December 16 for some cookies and holiday cheer and to put your name in for the raffle.

All members are welcome!
