Teamsters Local 237

Social Services Dept.

Local 237 has created a new Social Services Department.  For the first time, members participating in the Local 237 Welfare Fund can access free, professional social services.  Our members have tough jobs and, from time to time, we all encounter tough personal challenges.  Our union is committed to helping members find possible solutions to those challenges. Local 237’s licensed social workers are here to connect people to much needed assistance and resources.  They also facilitate positive change through their work. 

Areas of Support

  • Caregiver and Respite Support
  • Housing
  • Mental Health
  • Family Issues
  • Health and Wellness
  • Grief and Loss
  • Gambling
  • Substance and Alcohol Use/Abuse
  • Work Life Balance and Stress Reduction
  • Single Parenthood

Plans for the department include Resource Fairs and meetings focusing on specific areas of concern for the membership.

Under the guidance of Director Ayana Ali, LCSW, a licensed clinical social worker with a specialization in case management and mental health services as well as a successful past history of servicing 237 members, the department will bring important information about community supports in the city and greater New York area to our membership’s fingertips. 

If you need assistance and/or information about a particular concern or you want to make suggestions regarding the introduction of certain services, please contact Ayana Ali at 212-924-7220 ext 7562 or at
