Moments ago, Central Region Vice President Avral Thompson attended an emergency International Brotherhood of Teamsters General Executive Board (GEB) meeting via telephone. On the call, the General President made a motion to cancel the in-person 2021 IBT Convention that was to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its place, a virtual, business only convention will be held. This motion was unanimously approved by the GEB.
We do not currently have any information on the specifics of how this virtual convention will be hosted, but we will release more details as the unprecedented situation develops.
