North America's Strongest Union

Teamster Women's Conference

Every Teamster Has a Story

Darlene Hoy, who is a Local 213 member and the only woman among her 50 coworkers, has a demanding job as a rock truck driver. Local 890 member Eleanor Pineda, who has been a Teamster for 52 years, drives a farm labor bus for Dole Fresh Foods. Each of these members has a story to tell—a story of perseverance, resilience, hardship and triumph.

I Love Coming to the Women’s Conference!

Note: This is a first-person account of Kelly Rivera-Craine, a member of Teamsters Local 332 in Flint, Mich. She is attending the Teamsters Women’s Conference in San Francisco.

I love coming to the Women’s Conference! It gets me pumped up and motivated. We went through negotiations this year at Genesys Health System, where I work as a registered nurse. This conference gets me recharged and ready to go back to my local and my job. We are excited to have 20 women here from Local 332.
