On May 21, 2017, Local 174 members from five different Sand and Gravel employers came down to the Union hall to hold their Demands Meeting.
It was a productive meeting that gave the Local 174 contract negotiating team a good idea of what was important to the membership for their upcoming contract negotiation.
At the meeting, a Bargaining Committee was also selected. These representatives from the rank-and-file membership will attend all bargaining sessions with the Companies. They are:
John Anderson from Stoneway Seattle
Sean Stott from Stoneway Renton
Greg Allen from Salmon Bay
Todd Parker from Cadman Seattle
Dave McDowell from Cadman Eastside
Manny Navarro from Cadman Eastside
Ken Fiene from CalPortland
Mark Hislop from CalPortland
Curtis Emerson from Lehigh Cement
Here are some photos from the event. The full set is at the bottom, and is also available on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TeamstersLocal174

See you all again in May for the last General Membership Meeting before our summer hiatus.
Our Leadership Development Program Training this weekend was a rip-roaring success! We had a huge turnout of people who were engaged, excited, and ready to participate and learn. A big thank-you goes out to our wonderful membership, especially to those brave enough to volunteer (or be voluntold) to take the microphone and share. We hope […]
