Local 743 Remembers Chicago Cub Hall Of Famer and Union Organizer, Ernie Banks
Aug 20, 2021

The death of Former Chicago Cub Ernie Banks last on Friday, January 23rd, touched fans all across the world. The Baseball Hall of Famer was always a favorite with Chicago Cubs fans -- and with Chicago Teamsters.

Banks, noted for his friendly, down to Earth disposition, excellent all-around play and his powerful home runs, also put his skills to use for the union. He served as an organizer in the off-season here at Local 743 for a number of years, focusing his efforts on warehouse and mail order workers in the Chicago area. Banks also served as advisor for the sports program at Local 743, which as you might guess, had a heavy emphasis on baseball.

Ernest "Ernie" Banks will be greatly missed. He made an amazing impact in both the baseball and union professions. We here at Local 743 commemorate his fantastic career and his Teamster history.
