Dear Brothers and Sisters;
The merger process with Teamsters Local 837 is complete. The reconstruction of the Local 837 building is just about finished and we will be officially moving into that facility as of December 10, 2012.
The address of the Local will be changed of course. The new address, which is just around the corner from the Southampton Rd. locale is effective as of Dec. 10, 2012 and will be;
Teamsters Local 107, 12275 Townsend Rd., Phila, Pa. 19154
The phone number, 215-552-0070 and fax number, 215-552-0071 will remain the same. We would need you to make note that due to the switching around of the phone equipment from one location to another, phone and fax service to the local will be disrupted on Friday, Dec. 7th, 2012. Most Stewards and members have their agent's cell phone numbers if necessary and we do apologize for any inconvenience this disruption may cause.

Dear Brothers and Sisters;
The Executive Board, Officers and members of Local 107 wish to thank all those who particptated in the Christmas
Food Drive. It was truly a success. We were able to ease the burden a bit for our members who have been going
through a difficult time recently and we also donated what was left to our Brothers and Sisters from Local 929 who
had been walking the picket line during their recent strike at Red Cross.
Again, Thank you and Happy New Year to all our members and their Families!
First, thank YOU for your service to our great country. The package was
recieved in good hands, what a great morale booster. My life support guys
"Velcro'd" up the patches to wear on my uniform. Tuesdays have been
officially declared "Teamster Tuesdays" for the remainder of our
I flew with the T-shirt, license plate, and patch on my arm the following
day. After taking off . . .
