    • 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.

    • First Student employees’ collective bargaining agreement with the company, which covers more than 21,000 workers, expires on March 31, 2015. Employees at First Student made history when they voted overwhelmingly to ratify a national master agreement on June 1, 2011, and it is time to renegotiate that agreement. Turn to this page to get the latest contract news and updates. The first round of negotiations is scheduled for January 27-28, 2015. The national contract expires March 31, 2015.

    • 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.

       

    • Taylor Farms workers in Tracy, California are standing up against poverty wages, disrespect and severe violations of their most basic rights. These 900 food processing workers in the Central Valley cut, wash and package salads and other products for the largest supplier of fresh-cut produce in the country. They feed the customers of major grocers, retailers and restaurant chains, including Walmart and McDonald’s.

      With a revenue of $1.8 billion in 2012, Taylor Farms can afford to treat its workers in Tracy with dignity and pay fair wages, just like their Teamster coworkers have at Taylor Farms’ facilities in Salinas, California. But when workers came together to organize with Teamsters Local 601, the company responded mercilessly. It fired, harassed, and punished workers for supporting the union. The company threatened immigrant workers with deportation, hiring an army of union-busters to run a non-stop fear campaign. During an NLRB election for union representation, Taylor Farms deployed a goon squad of supervisors to intimidate workers. The company’s violations were so egregious that the Labor Board impounded ballots while it investigates hundreds of Unfair Labor Practice charges.

      Workers in Tracy, following in the footsteps of labor leader and civil rights icon Cesar Chavez, are taking their fight to the public. The workers’ struggle for a better life for their families is supported by Teamsters in California and nationwide. We are building a movement for respect for the workers who feed America.

      ¡Si Se Puede!

    • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

      After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

    • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
      More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
      Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

      A bright sunny sky, low humidity, and just enough of a breeze to keep the bugs away, one of the best days of this summer, and it was the day of the Local 776 golf outing! 144 of the Local’s best golfers, hackers, and duffers teed it up for some serious competition and bragging rights. Afterward the players were treated to a steak dinner as the winners were announced.

      Local President Ed Thompson remarked, “Usually when we have contact with a member whether for a grievance, a pay shortage, or any violation of their contract they are upset. We’ve had a picnic/baseball game gathering, now a golf outing, it’s good to see our members relaxing, having a good time. I’d like to thank Local 776 VP Dave Pogue and BA Ron Hicks for all their time and hard work that they put into making the golf outing a huge success”.

      Moving Day

      Summer time is always a busy time for moving for professional moving companies as well as the local U-Haul locations. But who do you call when you have approximately 15,000 toys to move? Call the Teamsters! And that’s just what the Marine Corps League based in York, PA did! The league sponsors the Toys For Tots program in the area and had to relocate from a warehouse to a different location across town. Local 776 retiree Dan Eucalano reached out to his nephew; Local 776 Business Agent Bill Olmeda, and got the wheels turning for the Local to supply it’s truck and a driver for the move. Early on Saturday July 25th the move took place. Members of the Marine Corps League were on hand to organize and load all of the toys.

      Commented Local President Ed Thompson; “First I would like to thank our driver Rich Stover for taking time on a Saturday to drive our truck in support of the Toys For Tots program. The Teamsters Union is a service organization, service to our members as well as the communities were we work and live. Second I would like to thank Marine Corps League for their involvement in the community. The Toys For Tots program run by the league provides a valuable service to the community at Christmas Time to those who are less fortunate than most of us. The Local Union is proud to offer our support to them”.
