Teamsters 2010 is thrilled to share the news that Jason Rabinowitz, Teamsters 2010’s own Secretary-Treasurer, has been elected President of Teamsters Joint Council 7! Long-time President of JC7 Rome Aloise resigned effective January 30.
Teamsters Joint Council 7 represents more than 100,000 members in 20 Local Unions in 48 counties of Northern California, and the Central Valley and 14 Northern Nevada counties. Joint Council 7 members work for freight and delivery companies; they also work in construction, dairy, beverage, rail and ports, food processing, parking, solid waste/recycling, hotels, bus driving, schools, public services and many other industries.
“I’m honored and humbled to lead our great Joint Council into the future,” said Jason. “Our Union faces unprecedented challenges, and tremendous opportunity to build power, win strong contracts, and organize thousands of workers into the Teamsters. I believe that the powerful Locals of Joint Council 7 – united and working together – are up to the task.”
Under Jason’s leadership, Local 2010 has transformed into a powerhouse for workers’ rights: increasing membership dramatically; leading successful strikes and contract campaigns that won strong contracts; and organizing over 4,000 new workers into the Teamsters. He has served as a Trustee on the Joint Council 7 Executive Board since June 2019.
Before coming to the Local in 2013, Jason served as a Teamster lawyer for 16 years. His success in winning justice for workers in challenging cases made him one of the pre-eminent Union lawyers in California. For four years, Jason served as a Professor of Labor Law at UC Davis Law School.
Jason will continue in his role as Principal Officer and Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 2010.
“Local 2010 continues to be my top priority, as we are building member power to win strong contracts and fair raises for our members at UC and CSU,” said Jason
Congratulations to Jason on his successful election!
