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.
What's New at IBT 776
Summer Time; warm sunny days, vacations, swimming pools, and Baseball! On July 13, 2019 join Local 776 for “Teamsters Local 776 Night at FNB Field” on Harrisburg’s City Island.
In collaboration with Harrisburg Senators Baseball a portion of ticket sales to Local 776 members will be donated to the Local’s scholarship fund. In order to track ticket sales a special link has been set up for ordering Teamster Tickets:
Because ticket sales are being handled by an off-site ticketing agent there is a $1.50 fee per ticket, plus an order fee of approximately 3% of the total order. One of the features associated with the groupmatics ticketing site is that you can see who is sitting next to you in a seat you are considering, or you can search by an individual’s name to see where they are sitting so that you can sit by them.
Come on out and support your Harrisburg Senators as they host the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Show your Teamster Pride, wear your Teamster Gear: hats, caps, shirts, jackets etc. Our roaming photographer will be there to capture all the action! In addition, for this game the Senators are also having an Orange Hat Giveaway: The first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive a bright orange Senators hat for all of their outdoor adventures! Also Tyler's Amazing Balancing Act will be at the ballpark to entertain fans. Finally, we will end the evening with post-game fireworks!
Bring your family, your friends, your co-workers and enjoy a night of baseball while supporting the Local 776 Scholarship fund. Tickets go fast for Senators games; don’t delay, get yours today and we’ll see you at the ballpark!

In May 2018, a secret ballot election was held for representation of Lower Swatara Township’s full and part-time police officers by Teamsters Local 776. All but one of the eligible employees voted in favor of representation from Local 776, and Local 776 was certified as the officers’ collective bargaining representative. Previously the Lower Swatara Township police officers had been represented by the Lower Swatara Township Police Civic Association
Lower Swatara Township officials filed an objection to the certification with the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, with The Board rejecting the township’s argument. The Township then appealed the decision to the PA. Commonwealth Court. On May 2, 2019 the court upheld the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board’s decision, ending the lengthy standoff. For more information on this important organizing decision and commentary by Local 776 Attorney Irwin Aronson follow the link below:
On Friday May 10, 2019 Local 776 participated in Vehicular Career Day at Hillside Elementary School in New Cumberland, PA. Local 776 Driver, Rich Stover, and Organizer Mark Cicak were on hand with the Local’s truck to help the students in kindergarten through 5th grade climb up in the cab and get a view of the "road" from a big rig and ask questions. There were over 25 different vehicles in attendance including a police car, fire truck, army vehicle, food truck, dump truck, hearse, construction vehicles and utility vehicles. Over 600 students came through the event.
“These kids are our future leaders, work force, and quite possibly Teamster Members” Commented Local President Ed Thompson. “It’s important that we as a Local Union support these community events to let the public know who we are and what we do. I would like to thank both Rich and Mark for finding the time in their schedules to make this a memorable experience for the kids.”
Local 776 Driver Rich Stover had everyone's attention as he explained how the truck operates
Rich got down at eye level with the kids to first answer questions.....
....And then helped them get up in the cab and see the "road" from a driver's viewpoint!
