In Mourning, Teamsters Support Member Family in Need

Teamsters Local 2010 is very sad to announce that our brother Michael Martinez suffered major injuries in an early October motorcycle crash and succumbed to his injuries Dec. 4. Michael was a dedicated UC Irvine K9 Unit Skilled Trades Teamster since he started working at UCI in 2011. Michael was a lead painter and took on additional side work as the sole earner in his family.


Our Local 2010 Executive Board has approved a $2,000 donation to Michael’s family from our Union charity and scholarship fund, and we are asking members to help if you can. We are collecting donations and money received will be forwarded to Michael’s family to help them at this difficult time. 


If you are willing and able to make a donation, please mail a check payable to “Teamsters Local 2010 Charities and Scholarship Fund” to our Oakland Office, and note that it is for the Michael Martinez family:
