The Local 174 family has grown once again, this time with the addition of a brand new Business Agent in our UPS jurisdiction: Ron Dong.
Ron Dong has been at UPS since 1989, where he worked for three years as a part-timer and then 25 years as a full-time package car driver out of the Seattle building. He was a shop steward representing the needs of his Seattle coworkers for 11 years before finally making the jump to represent his Brothers and Sisters across UPS as a Local 174 Business Agent.
Ron’s experience with UPS and the Teamsters goes beyond the walls of the Seattle UPS building, as he has served as a Delegate to the IBT Convention in 2011 and 2016 and was a member of the UPS Bargaining Committee during the 2013 UPS Negotiations.
Between the decades spent behind the wheel of a UPS truck, and his years serving his UPS Brothers and Sisters as a shop steward, Ron has a firm grasp of the types of issues that are faced by UPS members and is more than ready to handle them as a Business Agent.
“Nobody is more qualified to handle the needs of our UPS members than Ron Dong,” said Local 174 Secretary-Treasurer Rick Hicks. “He’s a great addition to the team and we are happy to have him on board.”
Ron’s new jurisdiction includes the Seattle preload, Seattle drivers, Boeing Field, and Tukwila Local Sort.
