We are proud to announce that, at 4PM today, Teamsters Local 89 Vice President Avral Thompson was sworn in as an IBT Central Region Vice President. This is an historic moment, as Avral becomes the first Teamsters 89 member in our long history who has sat on the IBT General Executive Board (GEB). The swearing in was conducted by phone to allow Avral to begin his term right away. A more formal ceremony will also be held at the Unity Conference this May.
Teamsters 89 knows Avral will be a strong voice for our membership on the GEB, and we are incredibly proud to have him representing our great Local 89 family.
