Long-time legislative advocate Barry Broad retires

Joint Council 7 extends our warmest congratulations to Mr. Barry Broad, Legislative Director at the California Teamsters Public Affairs Council (CTPAC) on his upcoming retirement. Barry will retire at the end of 2018, after having worked for CTPAC for the past 35 years. Barry has been a ubiquitous presence in Teamster political life here in California and will be greatly missed. 

After finishing law school at UC Davis, Barry went to work as a lawyer and lobbyist for the California Teamsters Public Affairs Council, where he cut his teeth on public policy. 

Ten years later, Barry hung out his own shingle, forming his current law/lobbying firm of Broad & Gusman. The firm represents a variety of labor union clients, including the Teamsters, Amalgamated Transit Union, IAM, SAG-AFTRA, UNITE-HERE, Utility Workers Union of America, Engineers & Scientists of California, Professional and Technical Engineers, and the Jockeys’ Guild.

Over the course of his career, Barry has been a tireless advocate for Teamster members, as well as workers across California. He is—and will always be— a part of the Teamster family. His long-time partner Shane Gusman and his son Matt will carry on his fine work representing us.

Congratulations and well-wishes to Barry in his retirement.
