    • 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!

    • 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.

    Looking Back at 2019 From Workers’ Perspective
    01/14/20 - Teamsters local 570
    Jan. 14, 2020 | COMMENTARY | The number of Americans who engaged in work stoppages last year was at a 30-year high, on pace to equal 2018′s strikes when almost half a million U.S. workers walked off the job. That said, such “days of idleness” were still less than the levels that workers sustained during the entire post-World War II period through 1979.

Below is an article on how widespread employer violations of federal labor are in Union organizing campaigns.
