A labor contract defines the rights and the responsibilities of both labor and management, and the remedies provided to each in the event that one party fails to live up to the obligations stated within the contract.

All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue, and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter.

Edmund Burke

Since 1910, the Teamsters logo has consisted of two horses’ heads, representing the complimentary forces of strength that are inherent in the Teamsters organization. A well-known emblem, most people recognize it but are unsure of the story behind it. The horses’ names are Thunder and Lightning, Thunder is male, Lightning female. Together, they symbolically represent the pillars of the Teamsters organization: quality and power, dignity and justice, strength and morality. The Teamsters are built on pillars that allow us to ensure that our Members’ needs are taken care of, that workers have access to their rights, and that our organization has the staying power to persist through the years.
1862 Lincoln issues Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. On this day in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issues a preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, which sets a date for the freedom of more than 3 million black slaves in the United States and recasts the Civil War as a fight against slavery.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation
under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The Great Steel Strike began. Almost 400,000 steelworkers in 50 cities struck to protest intolerable working conditions. Union leaders believed that if they could organize the steel workers, it would lead to a massive wave of unionization across the country. Thus began the Great Steel Strike of 1919. The bosses called upon the federal troops and crushed the strike after 3½ months, killing twenty-two people in the process. – 1919

With all their faults, trade-unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the betterment of the race, for the developing of character in man, than any other association of men.

On September 1st, after countless hours of negotiations and bargaining, in the hopes of saving their hard earned pensions, the Local 20 members at Maple City Ice went on strike. Mere hours into the strike, after 20+ years of dedicated employment to this Company; the Owner, Patricia Hipp came out simply to tell the eight (8) men that she had cancelled their insurance and then walked away.

Owned by the same family and cohabitating from the same distribution center; our members at Lorain County Beverage have joined the strike in solidarity and expressed their contractual right to not cross the picket line. 

Although this is never something these hard working men wanted to endure; we are all deeply thankful and humbled by the continued support from the community.

Thank you to all of the fellow union brothers and sisters who have stopped out to join the strike in solidarity. Thank you to everyone in the community who has driven by and honked in support and thank you to all of the men and women who have come by to donate meals, beverages, snacks and firewood.

On behalf of ourselves and our families, we are grateful for every one of you! 

In Solidarity,
Teamsters Local 20
