American Legion: Teamsters Are Improving Military-to-Civilian Shift
01.26.15 Starting this year, the Teamsters Union will begin offering civilian CDL training to enlisted military truck drivers. The training-to-placement program will set up shop on military bases and offer drivers the opportunity to earn their civilian CDLs before they are discharged. “Our industry is in dire need of truck drivers,” says James P. Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “We certainly want to transition these talented individuals from the military to private industry.” Along the union's Military Assistance Program, the new efforts will continue to strengthen the Teamsters' overall initiative to create and sustain more good-paying jobs for more American veterans.
