Brothers and Sisters,
As you know, we have shared our Union Hall (555 E. Rich St.) with Teamsters Local 413 since the 1970s. The Union Hall has always been jointly operated by these two Locals through a building corporation.
Without notice to us, Local 413 has solicited an offer to sell the Union Hall. The offer was reviewed by our Executive Board and unanimously rejected.
That offer was for $1.35M. Three days after our Executive Board voted to reject that offer, the offer was raised to $1.8M.
Local 284’s leadership is against this offer, and here are some of the reasons:
- Our Union Hall is paid for and has no mortgage.
- The Hall is centrally and conveniently located for all members.
- Most importantly, absolutely no consideration was given to the detrimental impact on Local 284’s ability to represent the members, depriving them of a very adequate facility which has served its purpose very well over the years.
- We would NEVER sell our property without Local Executive Board and 284 Membership approval.
Local 284 and Local 413 are scheduled to hold a building corporation meeting on Sept. 24, 2020, to discuss these events.
Before then, please MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD and submit your comments to Local 284 President Mark Vandak at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them below.
We will keep you informed of any new developments. Thank you!
