Teamsters 700 Launch New Webpage: JTDC UPLOADED

As we now face further restrictions and stay-at-home-orders nationwide, Local 700 understands the growing challenges to communication channels. We are proud to announce our new webpage devoted to Juvenile Temporary Detention Center members: “JTDC Uploaded”  This page was launched so JTDC members can go to a single area to find all things relating to the JTDC. You’ll find articles about unfair labor practices; important surveys which tell us how we can best help you; grievances filed; and general information about the JTDC unit.  Recent incidents at the JTDC have proven that the employer and State’s Attorney are dismissive to growing concerns of safety in the workplace, residents being at risk, and their caretakers, whom we proudly serve, being under attack daily.  Over the next several months, we plan to increase pressure on the employer to give our JTDC members the dignity and respect they deserve. We will add information to the webpage, as it becomes available, to keep you in the loop. JTDC Brothers and Sisters: please bookmark the web address of your new Unit home, and stay informed as we fight for your safety and rights. Stay Safe. Stay Strong. Stay United.
