    • 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.

      Summer Meeting Notice
      By a vote of the membership in attendance at the May 2019 monthly membership meeting the monthly meetings for June, July, and August 2019 have been suspended. The Local Union would like to wish everyone a safe and happy summer. We look forward to seeing you at the Local picnic, the golf outing, and when monthly membership meetings resume in September.
      What's New at IBT 776

      Local 776 has added more photos from the Family Picnic at Knoebels to the Photo Gallery. Maybe we caught you at the picnic, follow the link below to be taken to the Photo Gallery.

      Knoebels Picnic

      Knoebels is a big place and there were so many Teamsters and their families there our photographers couldn't capture everybody so lets open it up to all the members out there! Everybody has a phone so everybody has a camera and probably took some pictures of family and friends enjoying the Picnic. E-mail you photos to us and we'll include them in a special Photo Gallery titled "Members Knoebels Photos". E-mail your photos in medium size or resolution to:

      info @teamsterslocal776.org

      No need to send any identifying information, just your photos of everyone having a good time at the pavillions eating with family and friends, in the park on the rides, or by the pool and water slides. It was a big crowd so there should be plenty of good photos out there!

      Local 776 held their Family Picnic on Sunday June 9, 2019 at Knoebels Amusement Park. What a way to kick off the unofficial start of summer! Schools out, the weather cooperated; a sunny sky with just a slight breeze to keep it comfortable, and Knoebels! Over 5,000 members, spouses, kids, grand-kids, and retirees had registered for the picnic, making it one of Local 776 largest member events. With food being served from noon until 3 PM and the rides open until 9 PM there was plenty of time to get checked in, get your tickets for the rides and activities in the park, and let the day unfold. Local 776 Officers, Agents, and Staff handled check-in and kept the lines to a short wait time. Once inside the park judging by the number of Teamster hats, T-shirts, and sweat shirts seen there was a steady stream of Teamster Members on the roller coasters, the Ferris wheel, the kiddies’ ride area, and around the pool and water slides!

      Commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson “Words can’t describe the feeling of seeing my Brothers and Sisters, along with their families and friends, together as one united group enjoying each other, the day and the park. I’m proud of this turnout; it’s you, the members, supporting your Local Union, who fuel that sense of pride. I’d like to thank EVERYONE from Local 776 who put so much time and effort into making the picnic a success. Without your support this event could not happen”.

      Come on in!!!!!

      Plenty of help with registration kept the lines moving!

      The T-shirt says it all!!!!

      The park takes on a different atmosphere after dark!

      The Teamsters Local 776 Hershey Medical Center Negotiating Committe has reached a tentative agreement with the Medical Center on a new collective bargaining agreement to replace the current agreement which expires June 30, 2019. Details of the tentative agreement and scheduled dates for meetings for the membership to review the agreement before voting can be found below:

      Please plan to attend one of these important scheduled meetings to be fully informed on the tentative agreement before voting.

      Summer Time; warm sunny days, vacations, swimming pools, and Baseball! On July 13, 2019 join Local 776 for “Teamsters Local 776 Night at FNB Field” on Harrisburg’s City Island.

      In collaboration with Harrisburg Senators Baseball a portion of ticket sales to Local 776 members will be donated to the Local’s scholarship fund. In order to track ticket sales a special link has been set up for ordering Teamster Tickets:

      https://groupmatics.events/event/Teamsterslocal776

      Because ticket sales are being handled by an off-site ticketing agent there is a $1.50 fee per ticket, plus an order fee of approximately 3% of the total order. One of the features associated with the groupmatics ticketing site is that you can see who is sitting next to you in a seat you are considering, or you can search by an individual’s name to see where they are sitting so that you can sit by them.

      Come on out and support your Harrisburg Senators as they host the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Show your Teamster Pride, wear your Teamster Gear: hats, caps, shirts, jackets etc. Our roaming photographer will be there to capture all the action! In addition, for this game the Senators are also having an Orange Hat Giveaway: The first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive a bright orange Senators hat for all of their outdoor adventures! Also Tyler's Amazing Balancing Act will be at the ballpark to entertain fans. Finally, we will end the evening with post-game fireworks! 

      Bring your family, your friends, your co-workers and enjoy a night of baseball while supporting the Local 776 Scholarship fund. Tickets go fast for Senators games; don’t delay, get yours today and we’ll see you at the ballpark!
