Due to the increase in COVID-19 infections, the General Membership Meeting scheduled for January 15, 2022 has been cancelled.
The Executive Board of Teamsters Local 991 has made this decision in light of how contagious this new omicron variant is and will continue to monitor the situation in determining when it is safe to bring our members together in an indoor setting. Our members' health and safety is a top priority.
The February, 2022 meeting is currently scheduled to be held on Saturday, February 19, 2022. This is, of course, contingent on the Covid-19 case numbers declining.
We look forward to being able to safely meet once again.

For the second year in a row Local 991 members Kammeron Brown (UPS Tallahassee) and Justin Peacock (UPS Pensacola) participated in the Florida AFL-CIO Working Family Lobby in Tallahassee during the latest legislative session. They visited with the legislators and shared the concerns of working men and women. They were joined by members from other Florida locals who are making sure that organized labor continues to have a voice.
