Teamsters Local 911 is proud to introduce Jorge Sanchez as the newest Business Representative of Our Union!
Jorge brings a monumental amount of experience in Union and employee representation involving arbitrations, mediations and everything in between. His superior expertise will be the perfect fit to our Local and will only further the reputation of our Union.
“I’m here as a team player and not an individual,” said Jorge Sanchez. “Just like the old saying goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’ it takes this type of village mentality, teamwork, and a strong union like the Teamsters to raise the standard of living for all those we represent.”
Jorge began his career as a Refuse Collection Truck Operator for the City of Los Angeles. He was Lead Driver and eventually became involved in the Labor Movement when elected shop steward for SEIU. As shop steward for the employees at the East Valley Sanitation Yard, Jorge represented employees at grievances and Skelly hearings while being involved in Process Action Teams.
He soon became a staff member of SEIU Local 347. As an Advocate at SEIU, Jorge was involved in conducting investigations and responding to grievances for the City and County of Los Angeles.
Join us in welcoming Jorge Sanchez to the Local 911 team!
