    • 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

      After a long hot summer in the sun is your favorite Teamster cap a little faded, maybe rough around the edges? If so we can help you out; the Local has a very limited quantity of fitted flex hats available in sizes LG/XL and also 2XL. The hats are available in Gray, Black, and Blue for $27.00 each; they can be picked up at the Harrisburg Union Hall during normal business hours.

      Once again when disaster struck Teamsters local 776 partnered with the American Red Cross to distribute relief supplies to people in need. On August 27 Hurricane Laura made landfall as a category 4 storm with winds of 110 mph and a storm surge up to 15 feet, devastating much of the Louisiana coast.

      On August 31st Jo Brindley, Director of Development for The American Red Cross, contacted Teamsters Local 776 President Ed Thompson inquiring if we were able to assist them in transporting relief supplies to the affected area. Ed responded ‘where and when” and immediately went to work to get the logistics worked out to assist those in need.

      Local 776 is fortunate to have dedicated Members we can call on at a moments notice; Greg Hartman and Dave Dehart, drivers from ABF Freight, quickly stepped up to accept the assignment: they were to pick up a load in Hanover, PA at 9:00am Thursday and deliver it to Baton Rouge, LA on Friday at 10:00am.

      This was the first long-distance trip for Local 776’s new tractor; everything went well, the pick up and delivery were on time, the equipment worked great and our Drivers were home for their Labor Day cookout!

      “I would like to thank Greg and Dave for making time in their schedules to assist the Red Cross in moving the supplies to the devastated area” commented Local 776 President Thompson.

      Local 776 Members Greg Hartman (L) and Dave Dehart (R) jumped at the chance to help out and put some "road miles" on the Local's new tractor.

      The Placard tells it all....

      Upon arrival in Louisiana the truck was quickly unloaded so Greg and Dave could get back home for Labor Day! Thanks again guys from everyone at Local 776!

      Never Forget:

      …The cowardly acts perpetrated against our country by those who seek to destroy us and our way of life.

      …The innocent men, women and children who lost their lives on this tragic day; only for being in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

      …Our courageous first responders; who ran toward the disasters to offer help to those in need and perished while trying to help and serve their fellow Americans.

      Most of us can recall where we were that tragic day, what we were doing as we first got word of the attacks on our country, and stood in shock as we watched the Twin Towers in New York City crumble.

      Our Country may have been down, many countries would have crumbled under such crushing blows, but while we watched in horror as the events unfolded before our eyes, our strength and resolve grew and we became a determined people to punish those who promote terrorism and to make sure this tragedy would never happen again.

      Please take a moment today to pause and remember those who perished on 9/11. Remember our first responders who face danger daily, finally remember and thank our armed forces; both here at home and deployed around the world insuring that America remains the Land of the Free and the home of the brave.

      Fraternally,

      Ed Thompson,

      President, Teamsters Local 776
