Teamsters Local 695 Working Diligently To Support
Members Through the COVID-19 Crisis
As you well know, we are facing an event in not only the U.S. but the entire world that is unprecedented. The COVID-19 virus has crippled American commerce to a degree not experienced for decades. Your Local Union, along with the IBT and Teamster Locals across the country have been deliberating with Employers in an attempt to minimize the effect on our members.
Local 695 has contracts involving several different trades and dozens of differing Employers. The Local has been working to contact all Employers to discuss solutions to whatever issues may arise. First and foremost is the safety of our members/their employees. Due to the vast array of trades and job duties involved, a single solution can not satisfy every situation. It will take a heroic and unselfish effort by employee and employer alike to provide the least harmful result to this crisis.
The efforts of Teamster workers across the nation to provide fellow Americans with the essentials is a reason for great pride in Union labor. Whether providing food, drink, transportation, or other necessities they epitomize “Union Proud”.
Let’s continue to band together to make the best of a dismal situation. As always, please reach out to the Local if you have any specific questions.
We Are Teamsters!!!
