Celebrating Black History Month
Mar 14, 2024

As February draws to a close, we look back and celebrate the proud history of Black Teamsters at Local 89. From historical figures like Trustee and Reverend James L. Martin to our current staff like Business Agent Alex Murphy and Organizer Bryan Trafford, we are proud to have such amazing talent in our Local 89 family and our history.

To the many skilled and passionate Black Teamsters who serve as stewards, committee persons, or just active members, thank you for your dedication to making our union better and stronger. As said by great Teamsters many times over the years, we must always remember to leave our union in a better place for those who come after us.

Since our founding in 1903, the Teamsters union has never and will never have a color barrier. But that does not mean we shouldn’t always push to be even better. It is up to all of us to strive for greater inclusion so that our union looks increasingly like our members. We encourage all Black Teamster activists to get involved, become alternates or stewards, look to serve on negotiating committees and attend union meetings. If you want to be more active but do not know how, or need help, please reach out to us.
