      Teamster employees who work for TeamCare and the Central States Pension Fund have voted to strike. The rain and cold couldn’t stop over 200 Teamster employees from Standing Strong on day one of the strike. One of the major issues is production standards for call-center workers. The members will be back on the strike line on Monday, March 18, 2019 at 6 am.  Local 743, President Simmons-Peterson and the Executive Board stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at Central States.

      The February Monthly General Membership Meeting will be held on February 4, 2019 at the local 743 union hall. Officer Gregory Moore from the Cook County Health and Hospitals Systems will be conducting an active shooter presentation.  

      Unfortunately in today’s world, active shooter preparation is becoming an essential emergency response practice for organizations of all shapes and sizes. In light of the tragedy that happened at Mercy Hospital this past November, local 743 and President Simmons wants to prepare our members with the tools that could possibly saved their lives if the unexpected were to happen.

      The meeting will start promptly at 6:00 pm and presentation will begin at 6:30 pm.

      Union stewards are strongly encouraged to attend. The meeting will be credited towards the stewards ground rules and requirements that were updated on 12/12/18.

      Thank you for serving as a Union leader at your worksite.

      Please be advised that the ground rules and requirements for Local 743 union stewards implemented by the Executive Board in 2012 have been updated.

      In order to monitor steward participation and implement consequences for stewards who do not comply with their obligations, the Local 743 Executive Board passed a motion on 12/21/18 to review steward participation on a quarterly basis to determine if the stewards are in compliance with attendance at membership meetings and trainings in order to receive their quarterly stewards reinbusement checks.

      Also attached is the union steward job description.
