    • 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!

    • This page provides the latest contract information to the 7,500 Teamsters—drivers, dockworkers and office staff—employed by ABF Freight System, Inc.

    • 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.

    • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
      More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
      Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

    • The contributions of black members to the success of the Teamsters Union are numerous, varied and as old as the union itself. This month, the Teamsters Union spotlights some of those contributions.

    • 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

      On March 7, 2018 the York County Commissioners held the second of three town hall meetings to discuss the proposed sale of the Pleasant Acres Nursing Home. Opening comments centered on the fiscal state of affairs at the home; how the Commissioners had to continually use taxpayer money to finance the home. Next it was stated that there have been 18 for-profit entities that have expressed an interest in buying the home.

      Let’s step back for a moment: Any business is operating for one purpose: to make money! Despite any warm feel good slogans or catchwords used to make you feel they are part of you or care for you, the bottom line is Profit-make money. The County Commissioners state that the nursing home continually loses money. Then why would numerous for profit companies want to buy it? The companies will not buy a loser; they want to make money. The nursing home is funded by fixed amounts of federal and state dollars; a for-profit company can’t make a profit by going to these agencies and getting more money. So how do they increase the bottom line? They can’t get more money in- lets cut the money out. Reduce the nursing staff, reduce the support staff, reduce the maintenance staff, reduce the amount spent on upgrades to the facility and equipment, and reduce the level of care the residents receive. Next up would be to reduce wages and benefits to the employees they are already overworking by being under staffed. Once the wages and benefits go so do the long time dedicated employees who have been providing care to your loved ones, replaced by who knows what.

      During the public comment portion of the meeting a steady stream of county residents marched to the podium to voice their concern over the proposed sale. A group of residents from Pleasant Acres were on hand to let the commissioners know they do not support the sale of their nursing home.

      A website has been established to help save Pleasant Acres from privatization. Please visit the site by following this link: Save Pleasant Acres. Take a moment to sign the online petition to save Pleasant Acres. Let the commissioners know you reside in York County. If the commissioners ignore the voice of the people about the closing they can be reminded how they didn’t listen to the people at election time by being voted out of office! Every employee of Pleasant Acres should sign the petition. Everybody who has ever had a loved one cared for at Pleasant Acres should sign the petition. Every County Resident who themselves may someday need the care provided by Pleasant Acres should sign the petition. The last of the three meetings will be held March 27, at 6 pm at the Central York High School. We hope to see you all there.
