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.
The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded a $10,000 Scholarship to Alexandra Kohr, Daughter of Jeff and Helen Kohr. Jeff, a Teamster since 1993, works at the Hershey Medical Center. Alexandra was introduced to the membership at the January monthly membership meeting. She will be attending Penn State University in the fall of the year.
“I’m proud of Alexandra and her accomplishment as a Hoffa Scholarship Finalist,” stated Local 776 President Ed Thompson. “In addition to the Hoffa Scholarships there are additional Scholarships awarded by the Local Union. I encourage all eligible persons to apply.”

Recently two local 776 families were affected by house fires. One member lost his life in the fire. Both families lost everything; a total of six children are affected. Follow the link below for information on how Local 776 is collecting clothing and household items for the families. Thank you for your support of these families.
Applications for the James R. Hoffa 2017 Memorial Scholarship fund are now available. Along with the Hoffa Scholarships there are additional Local 776 scholarships available to local 776 members.

This time of the year the aroma of fresh baked Christmas Cookies can be found in many homes; the aroma at the Smiley home must rival that of a cookie factory. Janet Smiley, the wife of local 776 Trustee Rob Smiley, bakes the cookies for the Children’s Christmas Party! If you’ve been to the party or looked at some of the photos from the party you know a lot of cookies get eaten; A LOT of cookies! This year Janet made six different varieties of cookies, a total of 250 dozen cookies- If you’re doing the math that’s 3,000 cookies! During a four-day span the Smiley kitchen resembles a production line as tray after tray of cookies are laid out, baked, and cooled. Rob’s right in the kitchen with Janet helping to keep the assembly line moving! Thank you Janet for your time and effort contributing to the party!
