Teamsters Sponsor Non-profit that Reaches Out to Vets in Need

Teamsters Airline Division Chairman Capt. David Bourne and Economics and Contracts Director Jim Kimball participated in a hospital visit over the weekend as part of their work with a non-profit that they coordinate closely with and raise money for, “Ipods for Wounded Veterans.” The non-profit, an organization that is completely run by volunteers, was started by a retired Teamster, Paul Cardello of Local 170 in Worcester, Mass.

Opioids now kill over 100 Americans every day. In a single year, opioids kill more Americans than died in the entire Vietnam and Iraq Wars. And while the underground drug trade is fueling this epidemic of medicalized self-destruction, the flow of black-market opioids is inseparable from its above-ground counterpart—the pharmaceutical companies that peddle the legal and FDA-approved pain killers like OxyContin and Vicodin. And now workers on the front lines of this crisis are challenging the nation’s biggest pushers to stop pumping deadly drugs into their neighborhoods.

Las Vegas Teamsters Encouraged to Give Blood

The Teamsters Union is asking all of our Las Vegas members in Locals 14, 631 and 986 to donate blood at their earliest convenience to assist the community in this time of need.

 With last night’s terrible tragedy, the blood supply is running low and donations are urgently needed.

There are four blood banks in Las Vegas: 6939 West Charleston; 601 Whitney Ranch; 4950 West Craig Road; and 901 Rancho. Please go to one of these facilities and give the gift of life to someone who needs it now.

Thank you for helping out at this important time.
