Statement on UPS Shooting in San Francisco

Sisters, brothers,

I was saddened to learn of yesterday’s workplace shooting at a UPS warehouse in San Francisco, which took the lives of three of our fellow Teamsters.

Today, the thoughts and prayers of over 125,000 Canadian Teamster members are with the victims’ co-workers and loved ones. I would also like to wish a speedy recovery to those who were injured.

While we mourn our collective loss, I have no doubt in my heart that the affected members will emerge from this tragedy stronger and more united than ever.

In solidarity,

François Laporte
President
Teamsters Canada
