Dispatchers and Stewards

Updated On: Jun 25, 2014 (14:51:00)

Dear 814 Shop Stewards:

On June 17, 2014, the Teamsters Local 814 Executive Board passed a motion to prohibit union members from serving as both dispatcher and shop steward.  This motion was passed because of the inherent conflict between the two roles, and to avoid future incidents of such conflict.

At the vast majority of commercial moving and storage companies, the dispatcher position is a management role. Charged with staffing the company’s jobs, the dispatcher has the power to violate or adhere to the seniority rules in the CBA.  Many dispatchers also discipline members, or recommend discipline to the head of operations.

The steward has an opposing set of responsibilities.  The steward is charged with ensuring that members receive fair treatment from dispatchers, that the dispatchers make their assignments according to the CBA, and that the discipline issued by such dispatchers is for just cause.  Having one employee serve both roles creates a potential conflict of responsibilities.

If you are currently serving in both roles, please notify the Union immediately which of the two positions you will resign.  If you have not notified the Union of your decision by Monday, July 7, 2014, the Local Union Executive Board will appoint a new steward at your shop.
