The 2017 Teamster's Women's Conference kicked off Sunday, in San Antonio, Texas where over a thousand Teamster women gathered from all across North America in solidarity and unity of sisterhood. The three-day annual conference perfectly themed "Teamster Women Spur Change", provides the opportunity for women of all backgrounds to unite and empower one another through educational workshops, panels, and social activities.

His local, as well as Teamsters Local 19, which covers mechanics and flight simulator technicians, and Local 919, which covers brewery and soft drink employees, were expecting about 50 trucks from other Teamsters Locals around the country.
