Teamsters Local 1932, a union of 14,000 mostly public employees in the Inland Empire, welcomes Michael Eagleson as the organization’s newest Lead Negotiator and representational staff supervisor. Eagleson, with over 20 years in progressive roles representing public employees, joins Teamsters Local 1932 after most recently serving as Executive Director at the nearby Sheriff’s Employees’ Benefit Association (SEBA).
Throughout 18 years at SEBA, Eagleson negotiated over 25 collective bargaining agreements that set the standard in compensation for working people of San Bernardino County. He will help oversee Teamsters Local 1932 staff members currently performing representational duties and will implement new and further existing labor relations strategies in preparation for upcoming contract negotiations for Teamster members.
Eagleson says, “Since the emergence of Teamsters Local 1932 in 2015, I have watched them grow into a powerhouse organization that is absolutely dedicated to advocating for its members and the community in which they serve. I am very happy to join them today”
Since 2002, Eagleson has also used his formal education at Pepperdine University, as well as training at Cornell University and Harvard Law School, to successfully resolve a variety of disputes as a labor arbitrator and mediator at Eagleson ADR. He has been a frequent visitor to Teamsters Local 1932 Union Hall in the past year as a Labor Studies instructor in courses provided by Los Angeles Trade-Technical College for Teamster members.
Teamsters Local 1932 General Manager Randy Korgan says, “The hiring of Michael Eagleson brings yet another experienced labor advocate to our organization. With our membership as active as ever, Eagleson will undoubtedly help guide that energy to win better wages, benefits, and working conditions for our members.”
As Teamsters Local 1932 continues to transform the Inland Empire by producing positive change for its 14,000 members, the public organizations that employ them, and the community they strengthen, please visit Teamsters1932.org for more information.
