Welcome To Teamsters 439

Teamsters Local 439 has been representing Teamster Members and their families in San Joaquin, Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties for over 60 years.  We represent workers in a variety of industries, including construction, food processing & distribution, delivery, freight,  waste management, and more.

The members of Local 439 elect their union leaders every 3 years and in 2014 a majority vote resulted in a change in administration effective January 1, 2015.  The new leadership includes Secretary-Treasurer/Principal Officer Ken Guertin and President Gabriel Salcido.   The new Local 439 Officers and Executive Board are pictured above as they were installed by Teamster Joint  Council 7 President Rome Aloise  (pictured far right).  Pictured from left to right :  Jon Formati, Recording Secretary;  Trustee, Miguel Gallegos, Trustee, Dale Wild;  Robert Nicewonger,  President; Roger Olivas Jr, Vice President; and Ken Guertin. Secretary-Treasurer/Principal Officer.

The new leadership of Local 439 will be making swift and meaningful change to reduce wasteful spending and to run business operations more efficiently.   In response to the needs and requests of its members and stewards,  the Local 439 Executive Board has  aligned Local 439 business agents with companies that will best serve the members in negotiations and representation.  Members should review their union bulletin boards for important postings  and updates.   We encourage you to visit our website regularly and join our communication network by providing your most current contact information.   Your cooperation and patience are appreciated during this period of transition.
