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.
Local 776 held their annual DRIVE banquet on April 1, 2017. DRIVE members and their guests were treated to dinner and entertainment for their support of DRIVE.
In his opening remarks Local President Ed Thompson thanked the DRIVE members for their continued support. “You are leading the fight for working families throughout the country. Local politics play an important role in our member’s lives, your contributions to DRIVE enable the Local Union to make workers rights and working conditions goals of the politicians we support. Thank you and enjoy your evening!”
After dinner their were short presentations made by our guests: IBT DRIVE Coordinator Jeannette Barnes, Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas Judge Lori Serratelli, Local 776 attorney Irwin Aronson, and radio talk show host Rick Smith. The evening concluded with entertainment by “Red Halo” More information concerning DRIVE can be found under the “Member Resources” page of the website.

Annually, approximately Mid-March, the NMFA Freight Barns of Local 776 hold the annual bid; this is the process where employees choose their classification, start times, days off, and vacation for the year. All the selections are awarded in seniority order, under the watchful eye of the Local 776 Union Stewards. This year ABF, YRC and New Penn all bid on the same day which presented some logistical challenges for the Local, as usual the Local 776 staff rose to the occasion and the Bids went off without a hitch. All Business Agents were on hand throughout the day to resolve any issues that may arise.
President Thompson commented, “This is an ideal time to see our members and listen to any concerns they may have, it also allows other Agents the opportunity to observe the bidding process; which may lead to improvements in the job selection process at other facilities we represent.”

“Not the best day for a parade, it was cold and damp, but that didn’t stop the Local 776 members and their families who came out to support the Local in the Harrisburg St. Patrick’s Day Parade,” commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson. “I’d like to thank everyone who gave their Saturday to participate in this annual community event”. The Parade was held on Saturday March 18, 2017, winding around the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. Earlier in the week the area was hit with a snowstorm but volunteers worked throughout the week to make sure the route through the city was clear for the marchers.
Teamster Blue was traded for Irish green for the day!
