The Passing of Pierre Deschamps, Teamster Pioneer

It’s with sadness that the Teamsters Union learned that a pioneer of our union in Québec, Pierre Deschamps, passed away.

Brother Deschamps was president of Joint Council 91 (Teamsters Québec) in the 90s early 2000s, after having been president of Local Union 931 from 1971 to 1992. He cut his teeth in the Teamsters as an organizer and climbed the ranks to become one of our union’s leaders.

Brother Deschamps was at the forefront of major Teamster battles for decades.

Thanks for everything, Pierre!
