    • The IBT and your Atlanta Committee members, Geoff Maloney and Chris Rogers have been negotiating with Company management since 2010; almost as long as the IBT have been negotiating for the Express Jet CRJ members. 

      The Company has now given us their final, closeout proposal on wages. Neither the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Airline Division, the Business Agents of Local 210 and Local 19, nor your rank-and-file committee members are recommending this be ratified. A detailed letter from your ExpressJet CRJ Negotiating Committee can be found here. A copy of the company’s last, best and final offer can be found here.

      Ballots were mailed on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.  Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting.  Voting will close on Monday, July 10, and will be counted the same day. 

    • 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.

    • 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 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.

    • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) recently concluded and a tentative agreement has been reached. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to endorse the National Agreement and the Central-Southern Supplement, paving the way for members to vote. The Eastern and Western Supplements were approved in 2016, and will not be re-voted. However, all carhaul members will get to exercise their right to vote on the National Agreement and General Monetary Changes.

      Ballots will be mailed out on or about March 10 and are tentatively scheduled to be counted on March 30.

      The tentative agreement is from September 1, 2015, until May 31, 2021.

    • 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 Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

    • 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.

    • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

      There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

      The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

      But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.

    • Teamsters are been standing together to protect good jobs at Sysco and US Foods. Our solidarity on many fronts helped to defeat the mega-merger of the two companies, which would have put thousands of jobs at risk. But challenges remain as both companies refine their plans. Join our campaign to ensure these foodservice giants honor their agreements with 11,500 Teamsters and help us bring more Sysco and US Foods workers into the Teamster family. LIKE our Facebook page, here.

    Local 776 Organizer Mark Cicak has been hard at work growing Teamster Power. Local 776 recently welcomed the following new members to the Teamsters:

    West Manchester Township Public Works Department

    On January 23, 2017, Local 776 filed a petition for representation on behalf of the WMT Public Works Department.  The Township denied the request of the Union to recognize Local 776 as the exclusive bargaining agent and the Pennsylvania Labor Board conducted an election on April 12, 2017.  All of the eligible employees voted in the secret ballot election with a strong majority of employees voting YES in favor of Teamsters Local 776.  On April 24, 2017, the Pennsylvania Labor Board certified Teamsters Local 776 as the exclusive representative of the West Manchester Township Public Works Department. 

    Durham

    Over the course of the last year, Local 776 has been in talks with the Central Dauphin Bus Drivers Association about affiliating with the Teamsters.  In February 2017, the Local attended the CDBDA meeting to discuss with their membership the possibility of affiliating.  On April 20, 2017, the association conducted a secret ballot vote for affiliation with Teamsters Local 776 which concluded with an overwhelmingly strong vote in favor of affiliation.  Local 776 is proud to welcome the approximately 115 school bus drivers into the Teamsters Union.

    Krapf

    Krapf Bus took over the contract for First Student servicing the Harrisburg School District.  Krapf would not recognize the Teamsters as the representative of the employees.  The Local filed labor charges against the bus company which resulted in the Krapf recognizing Teamsters Local 776 as the exclusive representative of the Krapf employees.

    Cumberland Township Public Works

    On November 21, 2016, Local 776 filed a petition for representation on behalf of the Cumberland Township Public Works employees.  The Township denied the Locals petition and an election was held on July 20, 2017.  All eligible employees voted and 100% percent of votes cast were YES for Teamsters Local 776 representation.  On July 31, 2017, the Pennsylvania Labor Board certified Local 776 as the sole representative of the employees of the Cumberland Township Public Works department.

    Local 776 organizer Mark Cicak has been busy this year organizing across the Local's jurisdiction. Below are a listing of the Local's recent organizing victories. Check back later as Mark has quite a few groups that he is working with who wish to become members of the Teamsters.

    Newville Police Department

    - On February 25, 2016, the Teamsters demanded recognition from the Newville Borough on behalf of the Newville Police Department. The Borough chose to recognize the Teamsters as the sole collective bargaining agent for the police department.

On May 4, 2016, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board certified Teamsters Local 776 as the representative for the West York Borough Highway Department.

    Ryder Integrated Logistics

    -On June 24, 2016, Teamsters Local 776 demanded recognition from Ryder Integrated Logistics on behalf of the Ryder drivers that deliver for Metals USA. Ryder Integrated Logistics denied the Unions request and choose to take their chances with an election. On July 20, 2016, the National Labor Relations Board held an election where all of the eligible employees voted and an overwhelming number of Ryder employees voted YES for Teamsters Local 776 to be their collective bargaining agent. On July 29, 2016, the National Labor Relations Board certified Local 776 as the representative for the Ryder Integrated Logistics employees.


    Apr 22, 2015

    Employees of Intermodal Services of America who work at the Rutherford Rail Yard in Harrisburg, PA overwhelmingly voted to join Teamsters Local 776. By a resounding 38-1 vote the workers sent a strong message that they are united in organizing with the Teamsters and negotiating a contract.

    After receiving news of the ballot count Local 776 President Edgar Thompson commented: “We're thrilled to welcome our newest members to the Teamsters family and we look forward to addressing their issues at the bargaining table so they can enjoy the benefits of a strong Teamster contract,”

    It's Thumbs Up! for the Teamsters!
