Teamsters National Hispanic Caucus Convenes July 26


The 2012 Teamsters National Hispanic Caucus will kick off tomorrow at the beautiful JW Marriott in Los Angeles, Calif. This year’s Convention will feature three days of plenaries, workshops and great speakers including labor and civil rights icon Dolores Huerta and Teamster astronaut Jose Hernandez. 

“In this election year, the many issues that matter to Hispanic and Latino members of our great union are at the center of national, state and local politics,” said TNHC President George Miranda.

“That’s why it’s important for us as Teamsters to come together this year to discuss these issues. Hispanic members are a valued part of the Teamster family and the unity of our Caucus is critical to preparing for the elections and the year ahead.”

Miranda, who is also an International Vice President and member of the Teamsters General Executive Board, added that much of the membership growth of the Teamsters over the past several years has come from Hispanic workers.

Located in lively downtown Los Angeles, the JW Marriott Los Angeles – L.A. Live is near the Staples Convention Center at 900 West Olympic Boulevard. A welcome reception tomorrow at 6 pm will be followed by two days of exciting and insightful convention activity.
