Business Representative, Yolandous Williams

Yolandous Williams, Business Representative

Local 959 would like to welcome aboard our newest Business Representative, Yolandous Williams.

Yolandous has spent the last 14 years working for UPS in Anchorage. He has held many roles since starting as a part-time ramper and becoming full time 2 years later. Most notably, he has been a Shop Steward and Safety Committee member/Chairman for the last 11 years.
Yolandous takes his role representing his 500+ Brothers & Sisters very seriously at this 24 hour – 365 day shop.

Brother Williams is also member of the Pacific Northwest Chapter for the Teamsters National Black Caucus. His committment to his union doesn’t stop there, he has also served two terms as a Trustee for Local 959 and recently elected Recording Secretary.

To say he is an active member of his community is also an understatement.

In his own words, his primary purpose is Service. Service to his Brothers & Sisters, to his craft, and to his union.

We are very excited that his new role as Business Representative will propell his committment even further.
