Today in Labor History

Nov. 17, 1916
To the huge relief of Post Office Department employees, the service sets a limit of 200 pounds a day to be shipped by any one customer. Builders were finding it cheaper to send supplies via post than via wagon freight. In one instance, 80,000 bricks for a new bank were shipped parcel post from Salt Lake City to Vernal, Utah, 170 miles away. The new directive also barred the shipment of humans: a child involved in a couple’s custody fight was shipped—for 17¢—from Stillwell to South Bend, Ind., in a crate labeled “live baby” .

Teamster Scholarships

Teamsters kids are eligible for scholarships from two sources:

  • International Brotherhood of Teamsters Scholarship Fund  – Since 1966 the Union has awarded college scholarships to the dependents of Teamsters through this Fund. It awards ten 4-year scholarships worth $6,000 each, and  fifteen additional 1-year scholarships, each worth $1,000.
  • James R. Hoffa Scholarship Fund – Created in 2000,, the Hoffa Fund is a stand-alone charitable organization able to raise funds from a wide variety of sources, far more than can the Union's in-house scholarship, thus it is in a position to offer grants in keeping pace with tuition inflation. For instance, awards for  the 2010-2011 academic year include thirty-one $10,000 and sixty-nine $1,000 scholarship grants.
