North America's Strongest Union

Teamsters Union Honored for Helping Veterans and Military Families

Teamsters Airline Division representative Chris Moore, on behalf of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, has accepted the 2019 Eugene and Ruth Freedman Leadership Award from Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services.

The honor recognizes the Teamster Union's leadership and outstanding commitment to addressing the well-being of veterans and military families.

Colonel David Sutherland (RET), Chairman of Dixon Center said, “President James Hoffa and the Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) have influenced labor unions and their contracted employers across the country on how to utilize internal resources to assist veterans and military families in a positive way. They have created a unique pathway for veterans and active military service members to participate in life-changing career pathways. Dixon Center proudly recognizes them for their ongoing efforts and leadership. The continued efforts are life-changing for our service members as they transition from military to civilian culture.” 

Accepting the award (L to R): Colonel Duncan Milne (Dixon Center); Chris Moore (International Brotherhood of Teamsters); Colonel David Sutherland (Dixon Center); Rick Freedman (Freedman Foundation).
