Teamsters-Veterans-logo.jpgWe had a great meeting this weekend with our newly-formed Teamsters Veterans Caucus.

Members from a wide variety of industries participated, including grocery, dairy, cold storage, King County, and DOC.

We kicked off the meeting with a presentation from the Metropolitan Credit Union on VA home loans.

Members brought lots of good ideas about how we can support veterans in our region. We also discussed developing a leadership structure and caucus bylaws.

Moving ahead, we plan to have strong visibility at our upcoming Teamsters Car Show event on June 18. We'll be selling our new T-Shirts, holding a raffle, and providing more information about the caucus.

We plan to send a delegation to the Stand with Those Who Serve event at Joint Base Lewis-McCord on July 23.

Our next meeting will take place on Sunday, July 17 at 10 am. Thanks to everyone who showed up and is helping to build a stronger voice for veterans at our Union!
