Events leading to election for the leadership of Teamsters Local 237 get ugly

Recommended Posts

Union elections are not pretty.

 

So it's not surprising that things are getting ugly in the upcoming election for the leadership of Teamsters Local 237.

 

President Gregory Floyd hopes to keep the seat he was appointed to back in 2007.

 

But he is being challenged by Eunice Rodriguez, a school safety sergeant, who is running on a slate called Members for Change.

 

The union represents more than 24,000 city workers including school safety agents and city Housing Authority employees.

 

"The housing workforce has plummeted. We are working with skeleton crews every day," said Jakwan Rivers, a Housing Authority maintenance worker who is running for vice president of the union with Members for Change.

 

"People are being subjected to selective discipline and being degraded," Rivers charged.

 

Rivers, a former union business agent, said Floyd and the current union leaders "don't have the best interests of members at heart."
