General President Hoffa and Airline Division Director David Bourne recently met with Sergeant Major of the Army and Senior Enlisted Member of the U.S. Army, Daniel Dailey and Mrs. Holly Dailey. Dailey and Hoffa hold our service members in the highest regard and continue to have dialogue about providing opportunities for soldiers who are seeking life changing career pathways as they are exiting from their military careers and entering into civilian sectors. Service members capabilities and credentials are often overlooked or are not properly identified by civilian industry. The Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) has an on-going collaboration with the U.S. Army, Department of Defense and Department of Labor.
TMAP and Hoffa also hosted meetings with Colonel Prescott Farris, Director of U.S. Army Soldier for Life program. They were joined by Director Bourne and Airline division representatives Paul Alves (U.S. Air Force Veteran), Chris Moore and Robert Fisher. Also, on April 25, TMAP and Teamsters Airline Division met with Mr. Boris Program Manager, Under Secretary of Defense and the U.S. Army with regard to A&P Licensure. Industry and the Military are having collective conversations with regard to providing policy and pathways for those who have honorably served to better their futures.
The Teamsters continue to support our nation’s service men and woman through the Teamsters Military Assistance Program. The resources that the Teamsters have provided with regard to CDL Licensing and Credentialing has changed the lives of many returning service men and women as they transition from their military careers into civilian sector. The TMAP/ABF program has put hundreds of soldiers on career pathways in the trucking / freight industry.
The Teamsters offer a unique resource and solutions for career military personnel transitioning into civilian industry careers.
