    Current Campaigns
    • 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.

    • Candidate material is distributed to all members to encourage informed participation in the International officer election, and to promote a fair, honest and open process.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Welcome To Teamsters Local 776

      Just A Reminder...

      By a majority vote of the members in attendance at the February monthly membership meeting the May 2016 monthly membership meeting was changed to May 15, 2016 begining at 10:00 at the Harrisburg Union Hall.

      On Saturday, April 23, 2016 Local 776 participated in the "Touch A Truck" event sponsored by the Rolling Acres PTO. The event was held at Alloway Creek Elementary School in Littlestown, Pa. Kids in attendance had the opportunity to see over 40 vehicles first hand. On display were Tractor Trailers, Buses, Fire Trucks, Police Vehicles, Ambulances, Delivery Trucks and Construction Equipment.

      Local 776 members Rich Stover, a UPS Freight member, drove the Teamsters Local 776 Tractor Trailer and Officers Gary Gearhart, a Union Steward with the Littlestown Police Department, and Anthony Lupian displayed their Patrol Cars.

      Local President Ed Thompson commented on the days events: “Foremost I would like to thank our members Rich, Gary, and Anthony for giving their time so that Local 776 could be represented at the “Touch a Truck” event. These kids are our future, I’m sure the Teamsters made an impression on them today and in the future as they enter the work force and possibly become members of our Union we will welcome them with open arms”
