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.
“Not the best day for a parade, it was cold and damp, but that didn’t stop the Local 776 members and their families who came out to support the Local in the Harrisburg St. Patrick’s Day Parade,” commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson. “I’d like to thank everyone who gave their Saturday to participate in this annual community event”. The Parade was held on Saturday March 18, 2017, winding around the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. Earlier in the week the area was hit with a snowstorm but volunteers worked throughout the week to make sure the route through the city was clear for the marchers.
Teamster Blue was traded for Irish green for the day!
Two of the Local's Finest!

Rest In Peace Brother,
On Saturday, March 11, 2017 Local 776 held a Workers Compensation Seminar for the Local's Stewards. Mike Dryden, an attorney with the Law Firm of Willig, Williams & Davidson, was the featured speaker. Mike covered the aspects of what is a workers compensation claim, the time frame for giving notice, filing a claim, and what to do if your claim is delayed or denied. It was a very informative seminar for our stewards; each one can take this knowledge back to the work place to help the members.
