Officer Randy Santarelli, Teamster from Bayside PD, was recognized for his heroic actions on September 13, 2023. Responding to a call regarding an unresponsive driver, Officer Santarelli was able to quickly assess the situation and identify the signs of an overdose. He promptly administered Narcan and began CPR. As a result of his actions, the driver survived what otherwise would have been a fatal experience. In a line of duty so often underappreciated, it can be easy to forget all the good the men and women of the police force do. It was an honor to present Officer Santarelli with a certificate of appreciation for his dedicated and selfless service to the community. His actions represent the core value of being a Teamster. On behalf of the General Teamsters Local Union 200, thank you, Officer Randy Santarelli, for your dedicated service.

Herb Bagley, the Union Steward of Brenntag Great Lakes, led a Sock Drive that was a great group effort. It's fantastic to see everyone come together for a good cause, and the Union Brothers and Sisters deserve a big thank you for their gift of socks.

On September 25, 2023, Teamsters General Local Union No. 200 met with Wisconsin Secretary of State Sarah Godlewski regarding the Kroger/Albertsons merger. From left to right, Business Representatives Mark Hanley, Jay Couturier, Secretary of State Sarah Godlewski, and President Jeff Bandur are pictured after the meeting.

We shared Local 200’s concerns and the concerns of our members about the potential job loss that could occur at the Roundy's Distribution Center in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, if the proposed merger and store divestiture are approved.

Kroger and Albertsons have proposed to divest 413 stores, including 14 Kroger-owned Mariano’s stores and the Mariano brand to C&S Wholesale Grocers. These stores are supplied by Roundy's Distribution Center in Oconomowoc, which employs around 800 hard-working Teamster Members with good wages and Union benefits.

This plan could lead to a 20 percent loss in volume at Roundy's D.C. and potentially more loss in volume with an expanded divestiture or rebranding of stores. Local 200 thanks Secretary of State Sarah Godlewski for meeting with us and listening to the concerns of our Members and Local 200.

Member engagement is a vital element within your Union.  As an example, one of the methods that may be utilized is a contract survey mailer sent to your attention for you to complete and return.  If there has been any change in your contact info, please get in touch with the Local Union to update your information.


Phil Lawrence, a 26-year Teamster, retired on Friday, September 29, 2023, from Roundy's Supermarkets Inc. Phil finished his career as a Sanitation Worker, and his presence will be missed.
