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
Recently Local 776 UPS Business Agent Dave Licht was appointed by the IBT to the Teamsters/UPS National Grievance Committee. The NGC meets three times a year to render decisions on disputes pertaining to the National Master portion of the Teamsters/UPS agreement. Decisions reached by the committee affect all Teamster members working under the National Agreement.
Along with his position on the NGC Dave was also appointed to the Article 43 Premium Services Committee. This committee consists of four Teamster representatives and four UPS representatives. The committee meets at least four times per year to address issues pertaining to Article 43 of the Master Agreement. Article 43 deals with the introductions of new services by UPS where the ground movement of packages cannot be handled by the existing feeder network necessitating ground movement by a premium services driver (mileage layover) or by sleeper teams. In addition the committee also hears and renders decisions on subcontracting issues that could not be resolved at a lower level grievance committee.
As the Local’s UPS BA with over 300 Feeder Drivers located at the Harrisburg Hub Dave has a vast amount of knowledge and experience that he brings to the Article 43 committee. Additionally Dave will be involved with the workings of the NGC on other issues that will have an impact on Local 776 UPS members. Dave is looking forward to working with Teamster Leaders from across the country as he moves into these added responsibilities.
Congratulations on your appointments Dave, It is because of your dedication and hard work that the Local is now represented on these two important committees.

The Labor Wire
Last year marked the biggest surge in collective action in decades. One month into 2019, working people already are carrying that momentum forward—and preparing to lead an even stronger movement for justice on the job.
A Month of Collective Action
From Washington to communities across the country, working people this month mobilized to end a pointless, 35-day government shutdown. By marching and rallying together, we proved to be a force that even the White House couldn’t ignore.
Meanwhile, more than 30,000 teachers in Los Angeles won a historic strike to secure better pay, smaller class sizes and more school funding. Now, our brothers and sisters in Colorado, Virginia and West Virginia are waging their own fight in defense of our public schools.
Not to be outdone, SAG-AFTRA members have joined together in a union-wide strike against BBH, a global advertising agency attempting to illegally walk away from a mutually agreed upon contract.
Whether we’re facing off against a billionaire school superintendent, a greedy ad executive or the president of the United States, working people have the power to win a better life for ourselves. When we stand together through collective action, the future is ours to build.
