    • 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.

    • On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It’s important to note that many companies file Chapter 11 in an effort to reorganize their debt and capital structure to facilitate a sale to a strategic/industry buyer or to a financial buyer with the goal to continue operating its core lines of business – and one of those options appears to be the case here.   

      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!

  • President's Message January 2018
    Updated On: Jan 07, 2018

    Starting our second term as your elected Officers and Business Agents I took a moment to reflect on where we have been, where we are, and where we are going as a Local Union.

    Prior to taking office in 2015 the Local was in turmoil; the officers and agents were divided, there was in-house fighting, grievances were unresolved, contracts were expired The Local’s financial resources were dwindling. In 2014 we asked for your support to restore Local 776 to it’s former self and you responded, putting your trust in us to fix the Local’s ills.

    In our past term we immediately set out to clear up the backlog of grievances, negotiate contracts that had been languishing, some for a year or more, and build a strong Local that the members could once again be proud of. With the addition of an organizer we began to grow the membership. We have been fiscally responsible in the use of Local Union resources and have grown those resources without cutting any services or functions for the members. Our Union Halls have been repaired and are a source of pride to the membership. In late 2017 we again asked for your support at election time. Pleased with the work we had done in the past 2 ½ years you again overwhelmingly responded: showing your trust in us and allowing us to continue to serve you doing the work at the Local.

    Looking ahead the times will not be easy. Many national as well as local “White Paper” contracts are in the process of negotiation, with more coming due for negotiation in the coming year. We remain committed to obtaining the best contract possible and then enforcing it after ratification no matter the size or scope of your collective bargaining unit. There will be more challenges against Union’s right to organize and collectively bargain for their members. The officers, Business Agents, and myself remain committed to serving you, the members with the highest degree of professionalism that you have come to expect from us.

                                                                          Fraternally,

                                                                   

                                                                         Ed Thompson,

                                                                         President, Teamsters Local 776
