“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered.  And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute.  History has stopped.  Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”   -George Orwell, 1984-

President’s View

We are the middle-class working-class people that make up the majority of America. Our upbringing greatly influenced who we are and how we live our lives.  Most of us came from working class families who lived by working day in and day out and living paycheck to paycheck just as we do now. Our values and morals are rooted from our family’s history, culture, and religion. These values, our faith, common sense and “Working Class Ethics” is what drives us, guides us and is what we as union members have in common.  Our working-class ethics give our lives purpose and meaning which leads to success.


The Local 295 Executive Board and I believe in our Teamster Local 295 Working Class Ethics.  We believe in our teamster union and most of all I believe in you. You who get up every morning, go to work and play by the rules. You are raising and supporting a family or yourself. You are a real American Teamster working-class hero in the world I was raised in, and in the real world I live in. I will proudly spend my life to serve and protect you and our way of life.


As a working 295 Teamster I have raised three children.  All three are married and with their spouses are each raising three children with the same principles, values, and faith that they were raised with. We are the working middle-class that have always worked and lived to serve and protect our families and this country and I couldn’t be prouder of you and them.

 

I would like to congratulate all of this year’s Scholarship Fund winners and wish them the best of luck as they start a new chapter.  I would also like to congratulate the newly retired 295 Teamster members for their service, membership and for being an example of all that I have said above. I wish everyone a happy and healthy summer and I am always grateful for your trust and support.  God bless all the Local 295 members and this country!



     Lou Calemine, President - Local 295
