*************************************************

This Monday, the Florida Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Senate Bill 78, Dues and Uniform Assessments, a bill that seeks to attack our public sector workers' right to join a union.


If passed, SB 78 would bog down the process of joining a union in an effort to discourage Florida's public servants from organizing. It adds needless steps to the membership process, including preventing union members from automatically renewing their membership with their union. It would also put the responsibility of confirming membership dues in the hands of employers for the first time, adding even more unnecessary complications.

This bill is union-busting, pure and simple. It's part of a national push by billionaire-funded special interest groups to destroy public sector unions in states across the country. Florida's state workers, teachers, law enforcement professionals, and firefighters have put themselves in harm's way throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to keep our communities safe and operational. This attempt to stifle their voice in the workplace is a slap in the face.

You can help stand up against SB 78 by calling your senator and telling them to vote no on this legislation. Click here to find your state senator.

 

In Solidarity,

Florida AFL-CIO

Welcome To Teamsters Local 79's Web Site

This web site is for our members, their families and others seeking information about Teamsters Local 79 and the 1.4 million-member Teamsters Union. We encourage your comments on the educational value, user friendliness and contents of this web site.

The Local 79 team works with Joint Council 75 and the International Union to organize and educate workers so that workers will attain a higher standard of living. The union’s key roles include:

  • Organizing workers so they can have a voice in the workplace.
  • Educating members so that they know their workplace rights and can participate fully in our democratic society.
  • Involving members in the political process so that their issues are addressed.
  • Negotiating and enforcing contracts with employers so that each member will be treated with dignity, justice and respect.

If you are not 100% membership at your work site and you are willing to make it 100%, call your Business Agent or myself to learn how we can accomplish that goal. This is why the Teamsters Union is one of just a few International Unions that are successful in our organizing efforts today with strong master, area and local contracts. This is why the Teamsters are looked upon by other International Unions as the leader and trend setter in the labor movement.

We encourage all our members to attend their monthly General Membership Meeting at the Tampa Union Hall, at 9 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month (except for the months of June, July, and August), and the second Saturday of December.  

Refreshments are provided after each meeting so we can relax and socialize with the membership. It’s a great opportunity to visit and share your experiences with the other Brothers and Sisters throughout Local 79’s jurisdiction. Area meetings are also held in Ft. Myers.
