TEAMSTERS LOCAL 179 SECRETARY-TREASURER GREG ELSBREE RETIRES

Teamsters Local 179 Secretary-Treasurer Greg Elsbree retired on January 31st.

Greg has enjoyed a long career with the Teamsters.  He was Recording Secretary of Local 179 starting in 2008, a Business Agent since 2006, and also held the position of Trustee and was head of the local's construction division.

Greg has been a  proud Teamster since 1984, serving as a Union Steward for four of those years.  As a construction Business Agent for Local 179, Greg was responsible  for coordinating agents covering Livingston, Iroquois, Kankakee, Kendall, Grundy and Will Counties.  He also negotiated contracts for asphalt, construction, bulker drivers, quarries, and City of Rockdale, City of Pontiac and the Village of Elwood municipal employees.

Greg was a delegate to the Will Grundy Building Trades Council, an officer on the Fox Valley Building Trades Council and a board member of the Three Rivers Construction Alliance and the Teamsters Local 179 Labor Management Cooperation Committee.

Greg continues to be extremely active in local politics, working tirelessly for politicians who support organized labor.

"Local 179 will miss Greg and his dedication to the local and our members. We wish him a long and happy retirement," said President Tom Flynn.
