Join us for our Holiday Membership Meeting extravaganza this Thursday, December 20 from 7-9pm at the union hall in Tukwila.
As always, we'll have our annual raffle drawing, where members can win from a bevy of holiday prizes.
Electronics, power tools, bottles of wine, gift cards, games, big screen tvs, and best of all, NUTS, will be awarded during the meeting. All of the gifts are purchased from companies with whom Local 117 has a bargaining relationship.
If you work graveyard and are unable to attend the meeting, be sure to stop by the hall during the day on Thursday for some cookies and holiday cheer and to put your name in for the raffle.
All members are welcome! You can RSVP for the meeting online here.
Christine McDaniels will be named our new Sergeant-At-Arms. She works as maintenance staff at the Teamsters Union Hall in Tukwila.
Congrats, Christine McDaniels! Christine will be named our Union's first EVER female Sergeant-At-Arms at our quarterly General Membership Meeting on June 15.
"I know how to talk to people and calm them down real quick."
"When John (Scearcy) asked me about it two months ago, I was overwhelmed," McDaniels said. "I've been excited ever since."
As Sergeant-At-Arms, McDaniels will have the responsibility of helping to maintain order at our meetings. That means if you start to get unruly, you'll have to answer to Christine!
"I'm definitely the kind of person for that," she said. "I'm the peacemaker. That's what they called me at my last job. I know how to talk to people and calm them down real quick."
Come to our meeting next week and witness history as Christine is sworn in to her new role.
