Master Tradeshow Agreement, GES Warehouse Agreement, and Freeman Warehouse Agreement All Ratify Unanimously

| January 19, 2024

Teamsters Local 727 is proud to announce that the Master Tradeshow Agreement was ratified unanimously. Additionally, the warehouse agreements in the industry were all ratified with unanimous support from the membership. The Teamsters Local 727 bargaining committees worked tirelessly throughout negotiations to make sure members demands were met and the tradeshow and warehouse agreements remained among the strongest and top paid throughout the country.

“Not only did we reduce the hours needed to work for health and welfare coverage, but we secured access to the Teamsters Local 727 Wellness Center for all employees and their dependents who were active at the time of ratification in all three agreements,” said John Coli, Jr., Teamsters Local 727 Secretary-Treasurer. “Additionally, we were able to remove random testing for marijuana unless DOT required, secure additional holiday pay for Warehouse workers, and negotiate substantial wage increases in all three agreements. Our Tradeshow Master Agreement is one of the few left in the country that does not allow one-man crews, which is a true testament to the strength of our brothers and sisters in the tradeshow industry. These members have never been more united, and to have all three contracts ratify unanimously is a testimony to not only that but also to the hard work and perseverance of our stewards and bargaining committees.”
