    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:

    1. Our Union Hall is paid for and has no mortgage.
    2. The Hall is centrally and conveniently located for all members.
    3. 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.
    4. 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, or post them below.

    We will keep you informed of any new developments. Thank you!

    Fellow Teamsters,

    As Ohio and other states take steps to gradually reopen businesses and jump-start our economy, life may look different than before the COVID-19 pandemic. Barbershops, hair salons and restaurants may open their doors, but we will all still be required or encouraged to wear a facial covering. As Teamster members working in essential businesses, many of us already have to don face masks or PPE of some kind.

    While many of these products were back-ordered and suppliers were unable to keep up with demand due to a shortage of domestic manufacturers, masks are now becoming more available. Teamsters Local 284’s Executive Board approved the purchase of the facial covering shown here because of its commitment to protect the health and safety of our members and their families. Look for your facial covering in your mailbox this week!

    We support our fellow Teamsters and our community by continuing proper social distancing and using facial coverings as required. Stay safe!

    Local 284 and it’s Negotiating Committees were able to reach Tentative Agreements for both Sygma Warehouse and Drivers simultaneously. 

    After strike authorization was provided by members from both units, Local 284 obtained wage increases of $2.30/hour (Warehouse) and 11% (Drivers) over the life of the agreement in addition to Ratification bonuses for both.

    The Negotiating Committees for both groups maintained the current quality health insurance with very minimal increases over the life of the agreement for members and their families.

    Both Agreements contained NO concessions to the Company and several positive language changes for the membership.

    Congratulations to Sygma workers, Local 284, and the power of solidarity!
