During a meeting of delegates on Jan. 12, 2016 at Teamster City, Local 700 President Becky Strzechowski was sworn into service as Trustee of the Joint Council 25 Executive Board. Joint Council 25 President John T. Coli and Strzechowski also serve as Teamsters International Vice Presidents for the Central Region.
More than 100 Teamster delegates representing 27 local unions across Illinois and northwest Indiana re-elected the executive board on Nov. 3, 2015. The entire board ran unopposed and began another four-year term on Jan. 1, 2016.
Led by President Coli, the Joint Council 25 Executive Board includes:
Secretary-Treasurer Thomas W. Stiede, Teamsters Local 703
Vice President Terrence J. Hancock, Teamsters Local 731
Recording Secretary Brian Meidel, Teamsters Local 734
Trustee James T. Glimco, Teamsters Local 777
Trustee Michael L. Yauger, Teamsters Local 786
Trustee Becky Strzechowski, Teamsters Local 700
President Coli praised the unity and perseverance of Joint Council 25 — one of the Teamsters Union’s strongest regional bodies and a thriving support system for more than 100,000 workers.
“Particularly in Illinois and Indiana, the Teamsters Union is better positioned and better equipped to defend the rights of working people than any other union,” Coli said. “The leadership that exists today within all of our regional local unions will pay dividends for hardworking Teamster members for years to come.”
