We are happy to welcome Mac Moore to the Local 89 staff!
Mac first became a Teamster in October of 1988 when he took his first Local 89 job at Dixie Warehouse. Mac has worked at several different Local 89 shops throughout his career, primarily in Carhaul and Freight. His work history includes Dixie Warehouse, Auto Rail Services, Gohmann Asphalt & Construction, Active Transportation, Yellow Transportation/YRC, RCS Transportation, Jack Cooper Transport and ABF Freight. From 2000 to 2002 Mac worked at Local 89 teaching hazmat courses to various area companies. Most recently, he has worked in the RCS Yard.
A first-generation Teamster, Mac has served as a union steward for his fellow workers many times in his distinguished career, beginning with his service at Dixie Warehouse in 1999. He has also represented his Local for the last three years as a volunteer in annual “Toys for Tots” toy drives during the holiday seasons. When asked to share his philosophy on the Labor Movement, Mac said his model from the day he first became a member of Teamsters Local 89 has always been “It’s not what the union can do for me, but what I could do for my union.”
Perhaps his most notable achievements are in his exemplary service to his fellow brothers and sisters in the Teamsters National Black Caucus. A longtime member of the TNBC, Mac’s passion and dedication to the union cause in the African American community has resulted in him becoming a two-term President for the Louisville chapter of the TNBC, as well as a Central Region Trustee, and Board member of the TNBC itself. In 2019, Mac was honored to be a guest speaker at the TNBC convention when it was held for the first time in our home city of Louisville. There, he effortlessly spoke of his passion and love for the labor movement.
Mac will be bringing his years of experience to our Local as a Business Agent. He will be working alongside several of our other Agents to learn various shops and their contracts to prepare him to take over those shops in the near future.
President Zuckerman and everyone at Teamsters Local 89 are excited to work with Mac as the newest member of our Office Staff!
