The Teamsters Union has appointed longtime leaders to new positions with the Port Division and the Solid Waste and Recycling Division.
Ron Herrera, who currently serves as International Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer of Local 396 in Covina, Calif., has been appointed to serve as the Director of the Teamsters Port Division.
“A tireless champion of working families, Brother Herrera is a natural leader who I know will continue doing great work in his new role,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President.
Herrera has previously served as Director of the Solid Waste and Recycling Division, which will now be led by Chuck Stiles.
Stiles, who currently serves as Vice President of Local 728 in Atlanta, will now serve as the Director of the Solid Waste and Recycling Division.
“Brother Stiles has been an important part of the Solid Waste and Recycling Division since it began. He’s the right person for this division right now,” Hoffa said. “I look forward to working closely with Brother Herrera and Brother Stiles to organize new members, negotiate strong contracts and represent members in the workplace.”
