    • 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!

    • 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.

  • President's Message January 2019
    Posted On: Jan 29, 2019

    Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy and safe Holiday Season. A new year is upon us; a new year with new challenges; when we meet those challenges with determination and full force oftentimes new opportunities present themselves.

    I would like to congratulate Governor Tom Wolf on his re-election this past November and wish him well in his second term as Governor. It is to our advantage to have a friend of organized labor in Harrisburg and I hope to continue the open dialog we established with Governor Wolf.

    I would like to start the year with a short “State of The Union” message. Due to the tireless work of our organizer, Mark Cicak, the Local Union’s membership increased last year. There is strength in numbers and Mark is intent on building those numbers! Our financial resources again grew last year due to the diligent work of Secretary-Treasurer Ron Hicks and our executive board. Together their prudent allocation of funds allowed our resources to grow while maintaining our service to the membership, grounds, buildings, vehicles, and people. 2018 was a trying time for our members employed by the County of York who work at the Pleasant Acres Nursing home. After numerous public meetings the commissioners voted against the voice of the people who elected them and got out of the nursing home business by selling the facility to a private operator. The Local Union is in the process of negotiating a new agreement with the owners for our members who work at Pleasant Acres. Additionally last year the Local Union was involved in three separate national contract negotiations: ABF Freight, UPS Freight, and UPS. 2018 saw a change in format for our annual family picnic. After much discussion it was decided to broaden the scope of the picnic from a picnic/baseball game to a picnic/amusement park activity. The change was made with the hope the family picnic would appeal to a larger group of the membership. Response to the picnic being held at Knoebels was overwhelming, the number of registrants for the picnic doubled over previous years. Everything was set for a fun-filled day at the park-until the rains came. Despite the bad weather over 3000 members, family, and friends came out to support the picnic and each other. The Local also was active in the communities where our members work and live, helping out when called upon with man power and equipment when needed. When disaster struck the Local responded by providing our tractor-trailer and drivers to move urgently needed supplies to the affected areas of the country. To close out the year were our Holiday activities. From our community services project “Christmas For Kids” to the Christmas Party for members kids and grandkids its all about the Holiday and the kids. Be sure to look over the holiday photo spread on pages 4-5 of this issue of the newsletter. Our roaming photographer may have caught you or your kids at one of the events. Additional photos from our holiday events can also be found on our website. As 2018 came to a close over all the Local Union is larger, stronger, and more secure financially, ready to meet the challenges of 2019 head on.

    Looking ahead at 2019 another group of national contracts will be negotiated: YRC, Holland, and New Penn. Preliminary meetings took place the end of last year and we will continue this year to negotiate a new national agreement with these respective employers. For approximately eight years, the companies have been operating under a series of MOUs (memorandum of understanding) designed to address the YRCW’s companies’ financial distress in the wake of the recession and to allow it to restructure. Those MOUs expire on March 31, 2019. We want to get these companies back to a normal NMFA-style contract and we made clear to the companies that we are not interested in concessions in these negotiations. Negotiations will be complex and multiple issues will need to be addressed, particularly when the parties discuss economics. Negotiations are scheduled to resume in early January. A number of Local “White Paper” contracts will also be negotiated this year. Among the “white paper” contracts to be negotiated will be the Local’s largest one; the Hershey Medical Center Contract. We have additional training scheduled for Union Stewards throughout the year. Both new Stewards and “Seasoned Veterans” can benefit from the training provided. Based on feedback we received after last year’s family picnic I’m happy to report that the picnic will again be held at Knoebels Amusement Park. Full details will be announced on the Local Union Website and through bulletin board postings.

    No matter who you work for or what you do if you are Teamster you are part of our unique “Family” a true Brotherhood of men and women banding together to stand up for fairness and equality in the workplace. May everyone have a Happy, Safe, and Prosperous New Year!
