Teamsters Joint Council 28 Says Goodbye to Chuck Eggert
Chuck Eggert was a Teamster icon. He began his Teamster career shortly after his high school graduation, working in construction as a truck driver. He then became a Teamster Shop Steward while working at Intalco, and in 1988 he became a Teamster Business Rep at Local 231 in Bellingham.
In 2002, Chuck proudly followed in his father’s footsteps, being elected Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 231. He held that position until he retired in 2011. He also served on the Teamsters Joint Council 28 Executive Board as Vice President.
Chuck wasn’t just a Teamster, though. He was also a father, to his daughter Tawna, and a grandfather to his grandson Quincy and twin granddaughters Johnny and Charly. They were the light of his life.
