Teamsters Mourn Loss of Organizer to Breast Cancer
Teamsters are mourning the loss of a phenomenal organizer and beloved friend. Over the weekend, Lisa Mack, a Local 848 organizer who was battling breast cancer, passed away. She will be missed by the entire Teamsters organization for her spirit, dedication and commitment to the advancement of worker rights.
Lisa Mack was a real Teamster. She loved people and was always smiling. She will be sorely missed.
Mack started out working for Costco and held a position on the Executive Board for Local 911. She later became an International Union organizer and joined Local 848 as an organizer several months prior to her passing.
Mack recently returned to her local for a lunch with coworkers. Although she was very ill, Mack wanted to spend time with her coworkers, who all cared deeply about her.
She was known as one of the best organizers who ever came along. She knew everything and grasped it quickly.
Teamsters are remembering Lisa Mack’s life in commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.
