Victory for Reform at Teamster Local 743!!!...

It may have taken them years, but all the hard work of Richard Berg and the other members of the reform slate at Teamsters Local 743 has finally resulted in a long over due and well earned victory. The 743 New Leadership Slate swept the elections, winining 6 of the 7 contested positions, including President, Vice-President & Secretary-Treasurer. This is not only a victory for the members of Local 743, but also a victory for the reform movement in the Teamsters and a major plus for the democratic, progressive labor movement in Chicago.

And look for more about this landmark victory on an upcoming episode of Labor Express Radio.


  1. Looking forward to hearing the interview.

  2. i would like to know why is it so hard to be fairly represented at Mercy Hospital. we have a management company name Crothall and they are disrespectful to the employees and they works beside us everyday and they are not required to pay union dues. We have taken all the appropiate steps to try and resolved this matter. we need help from someone who cares about their local teamsters.

  3. Hi Anonymous,

    I don't know what the situation is at Mercy hospital in regards to whether you are union or not and if you are, what local represents you. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish and I will see what I can do to help...
