A State of the Union Report published by Teamsters Local 804 sums up Tim Sylvester and his team's accomplishments as a leaders, winners and rebuilders of Teamster Power. Congratulations to Local 804 members on everything they've accomplished in the last six years.
On our first day in office, we reduced the salaries of all officers and business agents to free up dues money to serve the membership. Our predecessors paid themselves an average of $155,136 plus benefits. We cut all salaries to $115,000 a year—a savings of $40,000 per person—and never raised our compensation above $125,000 a year. We also stopped using members’ dues money to fund a 401K retirement plan that was exclusively for Local 804 officers. Through financial reform, we put your dues money to work for you.
