June 5, 1998
A strike began at a General Motors Corporation parts factory in Flint, Michigan that spread and ultimately forced the closure of GM plants across the country for seven weeks. The Flint workers were protesting the removal of key dies from their plant and feared their jobs would be lost. The company ended the dispute by assuring the plant would remain open until at least the year 2000.

Teamster employer is Maryland's ‘Greenest’ Distributor
Oct. 10, 2013 | Local 570 warehouse workers employed by Leonard Paper joined other employees and invited guests Tuesday in a ceremony marking the company's switch to full solar power from traditional energy reliance, making it one of Maryland's most energy efficient distributors. The family-owned company, a wholesale supplier of environmentally-friendly janitorial supplies and food service disposables, employs more than 153 workers at its Baltimore plant, including 31 union warehouse workers. Leonard Paper is one the first companies organized by Local 570, with collective bargaining agreements dating back to the late 1940s. Full story at Local News.
