    • Teamsters understand the value in union membership. Higher pay, better benefits, and a greater voice in the workplace are standards set by union members that won’t be given up without a fight, even after the Supreme Court’s decision in the “Janus v. AFSCME” case.

      While it is true that this ruling may create temporary roadblocks, public employees throughout the United States need to remain unified. We cannot allow the progress working people have made in union to be slowed down because of lawsuits that disregard the value of public employees.

      The Janus decision came about because anti-employee forces spent millions of dollars on lobbying and court challenges for over 40 years. Attacks from these outside groups, backed by secret donors, seek to eliminate the freedom of public employees to negotiate with their employer over the value of their work.

      Many Teamster members around the country have held conversations with their co-workers about the impact of the Supreme Court decision to reinforce the value of remaining unified. Whether at the worksite or at the ballot box, members are fighting back against these attacks.

      Public sector Teamsters have made it their career to serve their country and community, and any attempt to take away their freedom to join together is an attack on those who are the foundation of America.

      Our middle class was built by everyday working people, standing together in union. The Teamsters honor that history by continuing the fight to give working people the promise of the American dream.

      That won’t end with the Janus decision. The Teamsters will continue to organize, mobilize, and do whatever is necessary to achieve prosperity through collective action.

    • In July 2011, the plan to restructure YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) aimed at saving more than 25,000 Teamster freight jobs was successfully completed. The restructuring has saved good Teamster freight jobs. This page is dedicated to providing our YRCW members updates about developments that affect them.

    • This page provides the latest contract information to the 7,500 Teamsters—drivers, dockworkers and office staff—employed by ABF Freight System, Inc.

    • This Web page provides the latest updates for the national contract, riders and supplements that cover about 3,500 Teamsters at DHL Express.

    • 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!

    • The Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) assists Active Duty Service members that are transitioning, Veterans and Military spouses with job opportunities with responsible employers.

    • 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 ‘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.

    • 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.

    • This web page provides information on the ongoing effort to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Since 1994, NAFTA has devastated working families, putting corporate profits ahead of people.  What’s worse is that NAFTA has become the blueprint for all other trade agreements, from the way that it was negotiated in secret, to the bad provisions that have made their way into every agreement that has been signed since then.  Now, NAFTA is being renegotiated and we demand that it be reframed to work for workers instead of corporate interests.

    • 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

      On Friday May 10, 2019 Local 776 participated in Vehicular Career Day at Hillside Elementary School in New Cumberland, PA.  Local 776 Steward and 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!

      On April 28th the York-Adams County Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO observes Worker’s Memorial Day; in honor and remembrance of those who have been injured or died on the job.  Tragically, eleven work place deaths occurred in York County in 2018. Every worker has the right to a safe and healthy workplace.  The labor movement continues to fight for workers’ health and safety.

      In conjunction with Worker’s Memorial Day the Labor council sponsors an essay contest for High School Seniors. This year’s winner, Brennan Romanoff, who attends New Oxford High School High School, wrote on workplace safety and the Employers' responsibility to provide safe working conditions to employees.

      In honor of their fallen brothers who perished fighting a structure fire in 2018 the York City Fire Department Honor Guard presented the colors.

      Eleven candles symbolize the eleven lives lost in 2019.

      Workers Memorial Day Essay Contest finalist Brennan Romanoff accepts his award from

      Linda Sanders Vice-President, York Adams County Central Labor Concil.

      The laying of a wreath on the waters edge signifies the passing of the eleven fallen.

      Congressional leaders met with President Donald Trump at the White House to discuss infrastructure, and the labor movement stands united in our message: Enough talk. It’s time to rebuild America.

      This should be a no-brainer: Every $1 invested in infrastructure generates $3.70 in economic growth. When we invest in infrastructure, we create jobs, increase productivity, and make our neighborhoods stronger and safer.

      Inaction is the greatest cost. While Washington debates how to move forward, Americans are footing the bill—an additional $3,000-plus every year per family.

      The entire labor movement supports a federal infrastructure package that fixes our nation’s crumbling roads, bridges and transit systems, respects prevailing wage, and puts union men and women on job sites across the country.

      “Despite widespread calls to act—from the people who build our infrastructure to the folks who rely on it every single day; after all of the studies and reports outlining this urgent crisis, and notwithstanding overwhelming public support and outcry for increased investments—no meaningful action has been taken to put us on a course to correct decades of chronic underinvestment.” —AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

      t’s Infrastructure Week, a time to call on our elected leaders to rebuild and modernize America’s crumbling infrastructure.

      This year’s Infrastructure Week comes at a time when 79% of voters say investing in America’s infrastructure is a top priority.

      Here is what inaction is costing us:

      • Roads: 44% of major roadways are in poor or mediocre condition, which costs Americans about $533 every year in car repairs.
      • Bridges: More than 47,000 bridges have been declared “structurally deficient.” It would take an estimated 80 years to fix every one.
      • Water: Six billion gallons of treated water are lost every day due to broken infrastructure. More than $200 billion in economic activity would be generated by closing the water infrastructure gap.

      Inaction is costing Americans an average of $3,000 every year.

      It’s time to tell Washington to stop delaying. Take action and fix our infrastructure. Learn more at Infrastructure Week.
