Teamster Tully elected as Second VP at NOLC

Dave Tully, Teamsters Local 223 president and union rep, was elected second vice president of Northwest Oregon Labor Council (NOLC) in a contested roll call vote at the Sept. 27 delegate meeting, outpolling American Federation of Teachers-Oregon president Jaime Rodriguez.

The election was held to fill the vacancy under NOLC’s rules, no affiliated international union is allowed to have more than one top officer spot, so longtime second vice president Ed Barnes stepped down when Scott Zadow was elected president.

The cascade of vacancies was set in motion when UFCW Local 555 withdrew from NOLC in March, and it continues: Tully’s election creates a vacancy on the NOLC Board, and nominations will be taken at the council’s Oct. 25 delegate meeting.
