Teamsters Local 142 member Robert Spurr celebrates 40 years in the Teamsters Union at Truck City in Indiana.
Indiana Automotive Technician Celebrates 40 Years With Teamsters
08.09.16 — If you talk to Robert Spurr’s co-workers at Truck City in Gary, Indiana, they refer to him many ways: a man’s man, an expert, a workhorse. But through 40 years of service at this family-owned dealership, there’s something else you could call Robert day-in and day-out — a Teamster. On Tuesday, August 9, Robert marked four decades as a member of Teamsters Local 142, first joining the crew at Truck City as a diesel mechanic and automotive technician at just 20 years old. At that time, the Elite Support Certified, Freightliner and Western Star truck dealership was known as Gary White Sales, founded 70 years ago in Gary this year. Robert remembers it as just a fun place to work. “I liked cars, I liked trucks, so getting to work on them every day, I thought it was cool,” he said, standing in one of the bays of Truck City’s massive complex, rebuilt seven years ago.
