Today in Labor History

Aug. 20, 1986
Deranged relief postal service carrier Patrick “Crazy Pat” Henry Sherrill shoots and kills 14 co-workers, and wounds another six, before killing himself at an Edmond, Oklahoma, postal facility. Supervisors had ignored warning signs of Sherrill’s instability, investigators later found; the shootings came a day after he had been reprimanded for poor work. The incident inspired the objectionable term “going postal.”

Teamster Scholarships

Teamsters kids are eligible for scholarships from two sources:

  • International Brotherhood of Teamsters Scholarship Fund  – Since 1966 the Union has awarded college scholarships to the dependents of Teamsters through this Fund. It awards ten 4-year scholarships worth $6,000 each, and fifteen additional 1-year scholarships, each worth $1,000.
  • James R. Hoffa Scholarship Fund – Created in 2000, the Hoffa Fund is a stand-alone charitable organization able to raise funds from a wide variety of sources, far more than can the Union's in-house scholarship, thus it is in a position to offer grants in keeping pace with tuition inflation. For instance, awards for the 2010-2011 academic year include thirty-one $10,000 and sixty-nine $1,000 scholarship grants.
