I come from a union home where my father was a member of the Amalgamated Transit Union. I am a 2nd generation Local 688 Teamster member, as my mother was also a Local 688 member. I started at UPS in 1996 as a part-time employee, until going into full-time package car in 2005. I was a steward in my center for 10 years before being appointed as business representative in 2021. I am also a member of the Teamsters National Black Caucus. Unions are the reason for the lifestyles we enjoy and the protection of our rights as workers. As a representative, I will keep fighting for the working members.
