    • Following round-the-clock negotiations with Jack Cooper and one of its lenders during the week of July 29, the Teamsters National Auto Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) has received a Last, Best and Final Offer (LBFO) in the form of a Restructuring Term Sheet to save more than 2,200 Teamster jobs at the company.

    • The TNFINC-Reddaway Freight Agreement covers about 1,300 Teamsters in the Western United States. Workers will be mailed voting materials on or about September 13 and votes will be counted on or about September 27. The agreement will raise wages, restore a week of vacation that was given up in 2015 and will protect health and welfare benefits, among numerous other gains.

    • We, the EMTs, paramedics and dispatchers at Abbott Ambulance, owned by American Medical Response, Inc. (AMR), are forming our union so that we can negotiate a legally binding contract that provides our rights and guarantees in writing. Firefighters have their union and their collective bargaining agreement, and we deserve this same security for ourselves and for our families.

      Once we form our union with Teamsters Local 610, we can negotiate a contract and fight for the issues that matter to us:

      • Fair pay;
      • Affordable and quality health insurance;
      • More paid vacation;
      • Set schedules, and
      • A strong voice at work.

      The only way to win a more secure future as Teamsters is to vote Teamsters YES! and negotiate a legally binding contract. In addition to the firefighters, the EMTs, paramedics and dispatchers at Medic One in St. Louis have a contract with their rights and protections spelled out. The Medic One workers are Teamsters!

      Let’s remain strong, united and focused!

      For more information contact: Sean O’Neill at (202) 437-5228.

    • 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.

    • 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

      Going on strike against an employer is not taken lightly; tension and emotions run high. In the absence of a paycheck individuals ask themselves “How will I support my family? What about my healthcare? When will we get back to work? Recently UAW workers along the east coast, including a local parts remanufacturing facility in Middletown, PA walked off their jobs after contract negotiations with MACK Trucks were fruitless.

      In a show of solidarity in support of the striking UAW workers Local 776 Business Agents and Local Organizer Mark Cicak brought water and drinks to the striking UAW members and walked their picket line with them. Letting them know that their fight is our fight, and we will support them throughout. Like the Local’s truck says: “People Helping People”

      Second from Left: Local 776 BA's Dave Wolf, Dave Vrona, and Dave Licht spent some time supporting the UAW members on the strike line.

      More than 3,600 hourly workers at Mack Trucks Inc., in Florida, Maryland and Pennsylvania went on strike at six plants at 11:59 p.m. Saturday seeking “fair pay and benefits," the UAW confirmed early Sunday.

      “UAW members get up every day and put in long, hard hours of work from designing to building Mack trucks,” Ray Curry, secretary-treasurer of the UAW and director of the Heavy Truck Department, said in a prepared statement. “UAW members carry on their shoulders the profits of Mack and they are simply asking for dignity, fair pay and job protections.”

      This strike comes in the middle of a national strike of 46,000 UAW members striking General Motors in 10 states and 55 locations. The GM strike, which began Sept. 16, has dragged on so long that Wall Street has suggested it could harm the automaker's credit rating if not resolved soon. Talks in Detroit after four weeks of picketing are said to be making progress.

      Mack Truck has plants in Allentown, Pennsylvania; Middletown, Pennsylvania; Hagerstown, Maryland; Baltimore, Maryland; and Jacksonville, Florida. “The last four years we have helped Mack Truck make significant profit through our work,” Doug Irvine, president of Local 2301 and president of the Mack Truck Council, said in a prepared statement. “All we are asking is that the company treat us with the dignity and respect we deserve in making them successful.”

      UAW workers in Middletown, PA are on the Mack Trucks strike line. For more details and photos follow the link below:

      In collaboration with the York County WIC (women, infants, and children) program Local 776 is again hosting their annual Christmas for Kids Party. This community services project helps some of the neediest families’ kids in the area have a brighter holiday.

      Beginning at the monthly membership meeting on October 13th Christmas tree “Ornaments” with kids’ names will be available for selection. Ornaments can also be picked up at the Union Hall during regular office hours. So how can you help? Many members pick up an ornament and then return with a gift. If you would prefer, monetary donations are graciously accepted, then the Local 776 “elves” will shop for you. Please make any checks payable to Teamsters Local 776 and in the memo area of your check please mark “Christmas for Kids party”.

      This year Members of Teamster Horsemen Chapter 53W are selling raffle tickets in support of the Christmas for Kids party; the tickets can be purchased from any Teamster Horsemen member, and will also be available at the membership meeting or by contacting Chapter Pres. Rob Smiley at 717-6494856. Tickets can be purchased until October 28, 2019. The tickets will use the PA Lottery evening and mid-day numbers drawn on October 29, 2019 to determine the winners. First prize for matching the evening number will be $1000.

      This community service project could not take place without strong support from the members. This holiday season help put a smile on a child’s face by making their Christmas a little brighter.
