    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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

      The Labor Wire

      On Monday night, while workers at nearly 70 General Motors plants across the country were walking picket lines, GM cut off their health care with no advance notice. Nearly 50,000 families immediately lost coverage, including Laura Prater, who woke up in a hospital bed to find out that her insurance was canceled after having a $40,000 stomach surgery. “It makes me feel terrible,” says Prater. “Before I started working for GM, I was Army. I'm a veteran, so things like integrity, honesty—those things mean something to me.” It’s time for GM to honor its workers.

      Kitchen Table Economics:

      20%: The decrease in the average hourly wages of U.S. auto manufacturing workers since 2000, adjusted for inflation.

      On Friday, September 13th, 2019 Local 776 Business Agent Spencer Dearth and Trustee Rob Smiley walked the picket line with striking workers from Republic Services in Marshfield MA. The Republic Services workers, members of Teamsters Local 25 in Boston, MA were in day 16 of a strike called when the contract negotiations failed on wages, health care, and retirement benefits. While at the site Spencer and Rob presented the striking workers 25 bags of provisions and supplies for the strike line that were packed by Local 776 staff at the Harrisburg Union Hall. The bags for the striking members contained basic food stuffs including bread, peanut butter and jelly, cereal, cans of soup, and beans. Recently Local 25 Republic Teamsters extended their picket lines to Local 350 in San Jose, California. "When faced with a greedy company like Republic, Teamsters take the fight to the streets from Boston to San Jose," said Sean O'Brien, Teamsters Local 25 President. "Greedy, cynical companies like Republic have to learn that when they take on the Teamsters in one city, they're taking on the entire Teamster Union."

      As summer wanes and the corn grows tall this leads to an annual event: The York-Adams County Central Labor Council’s Corn Roast, which was held on September 9th. Again this year labor leaders, rank and file members, and friends of labor gathered to share in good food, fellowship, and corn! It’s a time to meet with others who share many of the same concerns facing organized labor. Local 776 was on hand with our hospitality truck and grill. Local 776 Trustee Rob Smiley handled the cooking chores assisted by his wife Janet and son Caleb. Also on hand from Local 776 were Business Agent Dave Wolf, 776 members Bob and Jason Myers, who work at Metals USA, where Jason is a Local 776 Union Steward, and last but not least Retiree Kittie Hake.

      While local 776 Trustee Rob Smiley manned the grill the corn simmered in a big cooker!

      A good crowd from organized Labor was on hand
