    • The ‘Let’s Get America Working!’ campaign seeks to restore a dynamic and prosperous middle class to drive economic growth by helping to advance policy decisions that create and maintain good middle-income jobs, guarantee retirement security, expand access to the American Dream, and ensure that the benefits of the ongoing economic recovery are felt by the many, not just the few.

    • We Are eXPOsing XPO’s Global Greed

      XPO Logistics is a top ten global logistics and transportation company with annual revenue of $15 billion and 89,000 employees, another 10,000 workers classified as independent contractors, and thousands more working for firms that subcontract with XPO. We are the REAL workers at XPO Logistics worldwide exposing the truth about the company’s global greed, illegal wage theft, unsafe conditions, and abhorrent and vicious anti-worker, anti-union tactics. 

      This greed includes mistreating former Con-way Freight workers in the United States who are being kept in the dark about terminal closures and layoffs, and the company’s illegal refusal to bargain contracts and denying their workers’ federally protected right to organize. It also includes port, rail and last-mile drivers around the country and in Southern California fighting wage theft in excess of $200 million because they are misclassified as independent contractors and denied the right to form their union. This greed has caused numerous lawsuits and strikes.  Greed also means an unsafe workplace and mistreating its warehouse employees.

      XPO’s greed extends to Europe beginning with breaking its promise to not layoff any workers for at least 18 months. French workers and the unions have been fighting back against XPO’s disrespect, lies and attempts to slash jobs. Similar struggles are taking place in Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and across Europe.

      Join the worldwide struggle now! Get involved with this campaign by joining the Facebook group “XPO Exposed.”

      Together, we can eXPOse the company’s global greed and win fairness, respect and dignity for tens of thousands of XPO employees around the world!

    • This webpage provides information on the Teamsters Union’s legislative advocacy at both the federal and state level as well as our field activity to support those policy positions and to get strong labor candidates elected to office.  Among other resources, you will find our federal legislative scorecard, formal statements of policy position and communications to Capitol Hill,  a weekly update on federal legislative happenings, an overview of bills we are tracking at the state level, and quick links to take action on priority issues.

    • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) are under way. On Wednesday, June 3, 2015 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to approve the contract proposals and the next day, Thursday, June 4, 2015 the Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) exchanged the contract proposals with the employer group.

      The committee will work hard to protect members’ health, welfare and pension benefits, protect job security and other address other top priorities

      The National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) and its supplements expire on August 31, 2015. The national contract covers almost 6,000 Teamster carhaulers.

      In addition to protecting benefits and job security, other top priorities are wages, the grievance procedures and safety and health issues.

    • The IBT-Airline Division has established this page as a place to get up-to-date information about the Republic Airways Holdings (RAH) bankruptcy.  Please check here for the latest information about the bankruptcy.

    • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

    • The Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

    • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

    • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

      There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

      The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

      But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.

    • Teamsters are been standing together to protect good jobs at Sysco and US Foods. Our solidarity on many fronts helped to defeat the mega-merger of the two companies, which would have put thousands of jobs at risk. But challenges remain as both companies refine their plans. Join our campaign to ensure these foodservice giants honor their agreements with 11,500 Teamsters and help us bring more Sysco and US Foods workers into the Teamster family. LIKE our Facebook page, here.

       

    • Welcome To Teamsters Local 776

      Teamsters Local 776 is the largest Teamsters Local in Pennsylvania. Chartered by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in 1937, we are located in South-Central PA. Our diverse mix of over 8,500 members work in six different counties.

      Local 776 member Sean Hightman recently set several world records in IPA (International Power Lifting Association) competition. Sean is a patrol officer with the West York Borough Police Department, having been with the force 4 ½ years,  and trains at Chaillets Private Fitness in York. In March of this year Sean participated in the IPA Pennsylvania state open where he placed first in the Amateur raw men’s open and first in the Police division; totaling 1260 pounds between squat, bench and deadlift. Seeing that his hard work was paying off Sean prepared for the IPA national championships, which were help at York Barbell in York on November 19-20.  Sean competed again in the raw amateur men’s open and in the Police category.  Sean won first place in both categories and took home the best lifter award with a total of 1335 pounds while weighing in at 165 pounds. Sean finished the national meet with the following results; Squat 520 pounds (world record in the men’s open and police divisions), bench 315 (Police division world record) deadlift 500 and a total of 1335 pounds (Police division world record).   This success at the national meet qualified Sean to compete at the IPA world’s competition, which is being held in Nova Scotia Canada in April 2017. Congratulations on your accomplishments Sean and good luck next year at the world competition.

      Sean shows how it's done

      Serious effort leads to world records

      On December 3, 2016 Local 776 sponsored a Christmas for Kids party for children in York County’s WIC (women, infants, and children) program. The party was once again held at the recently renovated and reopened York Union Hall. Party committee chairman Rob Smiley, a Local 776 Trustee, and 776 TITAN operator Mandy Day worked together through the year to make sure that over 100 children from some of the areas most needy families had a brighter Christmas. Each child received a gift and a chance to meet with Santa, along with a bag of treats to take home. After meeting with Santa there were snacks and refreshments available for the kids and their families.

      Local 776 President Ed Thompson commented, “As a service organization the Local has a responsibility to our members in the workplace as well as a responsibility to the members of our community. Helping these kids have a brighter holiday is one way we give back to the community” I would like to thank the members of the committee who put a lot of time and effort into making this event happen, and also a thank you to Stroehmann/ Maier’s Bakery and Canteen Foods Corp. for their generous contributions that helped filled the “goodie bags” for the Kids”.

      The gifts are ready...

      And the kids are excited!!

      Merry Christmas Everybody!

      Recently a long-time Local 776 member decided it was time to start a new chapter in his life. Melvin “Mel” Harris, a 37 year employee of UPS decided it was time to stop pushing packages and join the ranks of the retired. While Mel spent his time at UPS working at the Harrisburg Hub he was active in the Local Union. Mel was a Steward for 30 years, and served on the Executive board for 4 1/2 years. Recognizing the importance of getting officials elected who share our views Mel was active with the Local’s political action committee; going out to the polls on election day to help get out the vote. When the Local would go out to the employer’s location with the Union truck and grill to meet with the members while serving hot dogs and drinks Mel could be found working the grill, introducing the members to the Local’s Officers and Agents.

      Mel’s family, friends, and co-workers sent him off to retirement with a party at the Harrisburg American Legion. Mel is married to Phyllice; they have a daughter and two grandchildren. Their plans include spending more time with the grand kids and to do some traveling while enjoying retirement. At the party Local 776 President Ed Thompson congratulated Mel on his long career and thanked him for his time serving the Local Union.

      Local Pres. Ed Thompson congratulates Mel

      Mel's on the road to retirement!

      Friends, family, and co-workwers gathered to wish Mel good luck
