Trusteeship

To All Members of Teamsters Local 710:

Please be advised that on July 18, 2014, the Independent Review Board (IRB) issued a report recommending that Teamsters Local 710 be placed into trusteeship. Based on that report, Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa placed Local 710 into International Trusteeship, effective July 30, 2014.

PLEASE NOTE: On December 10, 2014, General President James P. Hoffa issued an additional notice confirming Local 710’s full trusteeship for a period no less than 18 months.

This decision was not made lightly and is a result of the serious administrative and financial issues detailed in the 152-page IRB report. As a result, all seven members of the Local 710 Executive Board have been removed from their positions.

Local 710 has a longstanding reputation for high-quality member representation. Most members will not see a change in their business representative. The union asks for your patience and understanding during this process. As it has for generations, Local 710 will continue to thrive and emerge even stronger.
