...“We have a lot of work to do during our convention,” said George Tedeschi, President of the Graphic Communications Conference and Teamsters International Vice President. “Since our merger in 2006, we have benefited greatly by being part of the Teamsters Union. The Teamsters, due to their size and expertise, have helped us with organizing projects, administrative support and other needs. We will consider resolutions over the next few days which will guide us into the future.”
