As shared at our April 2019 General Membership Meeting, it is with great sadness, but also excitement, that we let the Membership know that our longest serving Membership Specialist, Local 399 Executive Board Recording Secretary and dedicated Teamster, Rose Falcon will be retiring at the end of June. 

The respect and love for Rose can be felt by all of our Staff and Members of Local 399. She has dedicated much of her life to serving the Members of Local 399 and has gone above and beyond to ensure our Members are well represented and informed. 

Rose has seen the Local grow through various administrations, Industry wide advancements, technological changes and more. Through all of it, she has always put Local 399 Member needs first. Many can agree Rose doesn’t simply support our Local as a Member Specialist, but she truly has supported many Members as friends and family. She has worked her entire career to ensure this Local thrives and we are so grateful for her investment in our Local and the legacy she leaves behind.

Also, as announced at our April General Membership Meeting, our current Executive Board has appointed Business Agent/Organizer Lindsay Dougherty to serve as Recording Secretary throughout the remainder of the Rose’s term, which concludes in December of this year. 


Over the years we have heard many great stories from the Membership about how Rosie has supported our Members in their career. We would love to highlight some of these memories in our next Newsreel.

Thank you Rose Falcon for your 40+ years of dedicated service to the Members of Teamsters Local 399. We are so fortunate for your work ethic, respect for the Teamsters and love for your Local 399 family!
