About GCC Local 628The Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (GCC/IBT) was established on January 1, 2005, with the merger of the Graphic Communications International Union (GCIU) with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT). The GCIU was the product of a series of mergers between five predecessor craft unions: the Amalgamated Lithographers of America (ALA); the International Photo Engravers Union (IPEU); the International Brotherhood of Bookbinders (IBB); the International Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union (IPPAU); and the International Stereotypers and Electrotypers Union (ISEU). The GCC/IBT represents U.S. and Canadian workers in all craft and skill areas in the printing and publishing industry. GCC/IBT members work in desktop publishing and digital color prepress. They operate web and sheetfed, rotogravure, silkscreen and other specialty presses. They handle binding, finishing, and shipping of finished products. They produce inks, paper, and packaging materials made of paper, plastic, cardboard, and metal. GCC/IBT members are also journalists, graphic artists, typesetters, sales people, and support staff.
