Power Back On At Local 690 Office
The local union office, closed for several days because of the power outage, has reopened.
We'd like to thank all our members for their patience and understanding during the time it took for power to be restored.
Executive Board Re-elected by Acclamation
At the November General Membership and Officer's Nomination Meeting, Val Holstrom and the Teamsters Local 690 Executive Board were re-elected by acclamation of the membership.

Local 690 Donates to Second Harvest and Tom's Turkey
Val Holstrom, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 690, on behalf of the 3,000 members in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho presented a check for $500 to Second Harvest and Tom's Turkey Drive. We are proud to help provide a meaningful Thanksgiving dinner for local families who are in need.
Thousands of people in Eastern Washington lost power as a result of the major wind storm that hit our area early last week. Many people are still without power. We'd like to extend a special 'thank you' to all those who, even though dealing with the power outages, have stepped forward to donate food to those in need.
