    • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

      Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

    • The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

    • 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!

      What's New at IBT 776

      “Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.”- Franklin D. Roosevelt

      Memorial Day-It’s about those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Those who died on foreign soil, those who were taken years, if not decades later by poison encountered on the battlefield, and those who brought the demons home with them and those demons became too much to handle. This weekend is the time we thank those we can’t possibly thank in person but we thank them in memory of their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

      “For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”- James A. Garfield

      Local 776 Membership Update:

      Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a rash of package car drivers in the UPS Harrisburg East and West Shore Centers who have been forced to work more than 9.5 hours per day despite their putting the company on notice that they desire to be relived of excessive overtime. Beginning in late March until the present there have been numerous grievances filed by drivers being forced to work over 9.5 hours per day. The language is clear in the contract: if a driver is worked more than 9.5 hours per day after putting the company on notice he doesn’t want the overtime there are monetary penalties imposed on the company for the violation. On May 15, 2020 Local 776 UPS Business Agent Dave Licht met with the company on the grievances. When the dust settled from that meeting Dave had successfully settled the grievances: approximately $30,000 will be paid to the grievants in the form of penalty pay and if the violations by the company continue so will the grievances from the affected members. Dave has put the company on notice: Pandemic or not, the contract prevails and the members’ rights will be upheld. The current situation doesn’t give the company the right to violate the agreement they are party to.

      Local 776 UPS Package Car Drivers: if you feel your contractual rights are being violated by the company Dave has created a document to guide you through the process of successfully filing 9.5 grievances, which is available from your Union Steward. The process is also available for review on the Local Union’s website on the "Member Resources" page or by following the link below:
