Local 2010 Continues to Grow!

Over 1,400 Skilled Trades Workers Vote to
Join Local 2010

After a year of unprecedented milestones, we can add another victory to our list. Yesterday, the 1,400 skilled trades workers of the State Employees Trades Council (SETC-United) overwhelmingly voted to affiliate with Local 2010. 

Over 75% voted in favor of joining the Teamsters, and the turnout was enormous, with over 77% of members voting in the election.

 “We are proud to have the 1,400 skilled trades members of SETC join the 12,000 administrative, clerical, and support workers at the University of California system and the over 800 Skilled Trades workers at UCLA and UC San Diego,” said Jason Rabinowitz, Secretary Treasurer of Teamsters Local 2010.  “Together, we are building a true powerhouse in higher education with strength at not only the UC, but in the Cal State system as well.”
“Becoming part of the Teamsters was an easy decision,” said Sean Kerkoff, a plumber at UCSB.  “I am proud to be part of such a powerful organization with an unwavering commitment to its members.”

Earlier this year, by joining forces with our skilled trades members, we multiplied our power during the contract fight and this will only grow our strength exponentially.

The new group includes almost 1,400 electricians, elevator mechanics, plumbers, and facilities workers from UC Merced, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, and 22 campuses in the California State University system.

“This is an exciting time for our Union,” said Joseph Meyer, a records assistant at UC Berkeley.  “The addition of 1,400 skilled trades members puts us in an incredible position with the clout to make real change for our members.”

Congratulations to the newest members of the Teamsters and make sure to take some time and welcome our new sisters and brothers to the union.
