Teamsters Local 710 Increases Representation at Jewel Facilities

Business Agent Mike Cales Teams Up With Jewel Member Dick Bartolo

Teamsters Local 710 is happy to announce that Brother Dick Bartolo will be joining the staff to help represent members at Jewel alongside current Local 710 Business Agent Mike Cales.

At this time, Cales will serve as the lead agent representing all Jewel members. Bartolo will assist him in those duties on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Bartolo has been a union member at Jewel for nearly 37 years. During his tenure, he has served on the last eight negotiating committees since 1993 and has 25 years of experience working in a steward role.

Dick knows what went in the Jewel contract, when it did, and who said it – it’s impressive. His knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we work through the issues at Jewel together. He was the most qualified guy for the job, and it’ll be great for the members to have one of their own representing them.
