Recognizing Women of Labor: Bertha Aiken of City Employees Union Local 237 Teamsters.
Bertha Aiken is the Director of Training and Education for Teamsters Local 237. She credits her love for teaching to the time she spent at the NYPD, where she was responsible for preparing/guiding and nurturing young men and women in how to best protect and serve the people of New York City.
She takes great pride in helping the union’s members maintain or advance within their titles, or even elevate to another level they didn’t even believe they could attain. She loves showing women the non-traditional opportunities that are available to them, and she enjoys showing new members all the possibilities that are available to them.
