TEAMSTERS DELIVER CHRISTMAS TREES TO VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN’S RESIDENCE

Thanks to Teamsters, Vice President Joe Biden’s residence in Washington, D.C. is decorated nicely for the holidays.

Teamsters delivered one big Fraser fir tree and two smaller (just over 11 feet) trees from western Michigan to Washington, D.C. on trucks with Teamsters at the helm. The trees are from Wahmhoff Farms Nursery in Gobles, Mich., and they also supply Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s Christmas tree.

According to Ron Holzgen, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 406 in Grand Rapids, Mich., a Local 406 freight member loaded the trees onto a USF Holland truck and the driver transported the trees to a YRC terminal in Akron, Ohio. The trees were then taken to a freight terminal in Maryland before heading to Biden’s residence. They arrived at the vice president’s residence on November 22.

I suppose that you and I will be paying for this. Or will Biden be footing the bill?
