Local 665 joins our sisters and brothers throughout the Teamsters Union and organized labor in honoring the memory of our brother, Dan Varela.
Dan passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer, on October 11.
Dan was not a member of Local 665. His membership over 40 years included Teamsters Locals 70, 78, and 853, as a freight driver, and Business Agent.
However, countless members of Local 665 directly benefited by the advocacy, and search for justice, that Dan fought for on their behalf; at the negotiating table, and on numerous adjustment panels.
Thank you Dan, for being a true brother to all of us at Local 665.
You will be truly missed.
