    Workers at the Sysco Louisville Warehouse voted overwhelmingly in favor of ratifying their first contract on Saturday, April 6th. Less than two years ago, there were no organized Sysco workers in Louisville. After last year’s drivers’ contract and this warehouse ratification, Sysco Louisville has over 200 Teamster members, and is nearly wall-to-wall unionized.
    As Women's History Month comes to an end, we want to give a shout out to all Local 89's amazing Teamster women, both past and present. Local 89 has been home to a number of amazingly talented and strong Teamster women such as retired Secretary-Treasurer Carolyn Washburn and current Trustee Kim Wolfe.
    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.
    Local 89 was chartered on December 27th, 1933. In its formative years, Local 89 quickly made a name for itself as a strong, no-nonsense union that was respected and feared throughout our jurisdiction. Ninety years later, we are proud to continue that tradition as one of the largest, most powerful, and militant Local Unions in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
    November 14th, 2023 - This evening an independent election supervisor conducted a nomination meeting for Local 89’s executive board, and the Thompson-Cooper Teamsters United candidates were nominated without opposition. With no other candidates to place on the ballot, the Thompson-Cooper administration was automatically re-elected to serve a new three-year term beginning on January 1st, 2024.

    September 29th, 2023 – Late on Friday night, workers at the Sysco Louisville Warehouse voted by an overwhelming 92% to join Teamsters Local 89.

    On September 23rd, Shuttle Bus Drivers at ABM overwhelmingly ratified their first Teamsters contract with just one “no” vote cast. At approximately 180 employees, this is the largest newly organized shop to be added to Local 89 in decades and is one of the largest organizing victories of any union in modern Kentucky history.


    SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT There has been a great deal of misinformation spread about Teamsters Local 89’s position on the UPS Teamsters National Master Tentative Agreement, so allow us to set the record straight. Local 89 believes the 2023-2028 tentative agreement is the richest, most historic step forward for UPS members in our union’s history.
