Teamsters' Union Names Officers
A new board of officers for Local 987, Teamsters and Chauffeurs Union, was elected for the coming year at the union's annual meeting held in the Labor Temple Tuesday evening.
Named as president was Orville Martin, while Nick Olenick became vice-president. Other officers are: Ken Hamilton, recording secretary; secretary-treasurer, Bob Scott; L. E. Nicoll, warden; Walter Jarrett, conductor; and Art Silvey, trustee for three years.
During 1952 a members benefit hospital plan, operated by the members themselves, was also put into effect by the union. Under the scheme, members submit their hospital bill to the union and receive the gross amount in return.
