Graphic Communications 583 teams up with Teamsters 853

In 2005, the Graphic Communications International Union merged into the Teamsters, and I am proud to welcome the members and employers from GCIU Local 583, which merged with Local 853 in December, 2006 to become our Graphic Communications Division.

Any companies that work with unions know that you should display the union bug on all of your printed materials. Now, Local 853 represents quality printers across Northern California who can meet all of your printing and promotional needs.

In an effort to support our Teamster employers, I would like to encourage you to use any of the member printers listed in our Reference Guide. Call them directly or feel free to call Business Representative Lennie Kuhls at 510-746-3377 to get recommendations for the printers who can best meet your neeeds.

Sincerely, Rome Aloise
Secretary-Treasurer, Local 853
