ByInternational Brotherhood of Teamsters

Dave Beck’s life is a true American tale. He rose from poverty in the tumultuous streets of Seattle, leaving school before he graduated to help his family, then rising like a storm through the Teamsters’ ranks. His first union job was as a laundry driver and he became a member of Teamsters Local 566 Laundry and Dye Works Drivers. Shortly after his return from service in World War I he was appointed to the position of business agent for Local 566. His talent was recognized early by then Teamsters General President Daniel Tobin who put Beck to good use as a full-time organizer.
