    • Following round-the-clock negotiations with Jack Cooper and one of its lenders during the week of July 29, the Teamsters National Auto Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) has received a Last, Best and Final Offer (LBFO) in the form of a Restructuring Term Sheet to save more than 2,200 Teamster jobs at the company.

    • The TNFINC-Reddaway Freight Agreement covers about 1,300 Teamsters in the Western United States. Workers will be mailed voting materials on or about September 13 and votes will be counted on or about September 27. The agreement will raise wages, restore a week of vacation that was given up in 2015 and will protect health and welfare benefits, among numerous other gains.

    • We, the EMTs, paramedics and dispatchers at Abbott Ambulance, owned by American Medical Response, Inc. (AMR), are forming our union so that we can negotiate a legally binding contract that provides our rights and guarantees in writing. Firefighters have their union and their collective bargaining agreement, and we deserve this same security for ourselves and for our families.

      Once we form our union with Teamsters Local 610, we can negotiate a contract and fight for the issues that matter to us:

      • Fair pay;
      • Affordable and quality health insurance;
      • More paid vacation;
      • Set schedules, and
      • A strong voice at work.

      The only way to win a more secure future as Teamsters is to vote Teamsters YES! and negotiate a legally binding contract. In addition to the firefighters, the EMTs, paramedics and dispatchers at Medic One in St. Louis have a contract with their rights and protections spelled out. The Medic One workers are Teamsters!

      Let’s remain strong, united and focused!

    • We Are eXPOsing XPO’s Global Greed

      XPO Logistics is a top ten global logistics and transportation company with annual revenue of $15 billion and 89,000 employees, another 10,000 workers classified as independent contractors, and thousands more working for firms that subcontract with XPO. We are the REAL workers at XPO Logistics worldwide exposing the truth about the company’s global greed, illegal wage theft, unsafe conditions, and abhorrent and vicious anti-worker, anti-union tactics. 

      This greed includes mistreating former Con-way Freight workers in the United States who are being kept in the dark about terminal closures and layoffs, and the company’s illegal refusal to bargain contracts and denying their workers’ federally protected right to organize. It also includes port, rail and last-mile drivers around the country and in Southern California fighting wage theft in excess of $200 million because they are misclassified as independent contractors and denied the right to form their union. This greed has caused numerous lawsuits and strikes.  Greed also means an unsafe workplace and mistreating its warehouse employees.

      XPO’s greed extends to Europe beginning with breaking its promise to not layoff any workers for at least 18 months. French workers and the unions have been fighting back against XPO’s disrespect, lies and attempts to slash jobs. Similar struggles are taking place in Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and across Europe.

      Join the worldwide struggle now! Get involved with this campaign by joining the Facebook group “XPO Exposed.”

      Together, we can eXPOse the company’s global greed and win fairness, respect and dignity for tens of thousands of XPO employees around the world!

    • The Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) assists Active Duty Service members that are transitioning, Veterans and Military spouses with job opportunities with responsible employers.

    • 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!

    • The ‘Let’s Get America Working!’ campaign seeks to restore a dynamic and prosperous middle class to drive economic growth by helping to advance policy decisions that create and maintain good middle-income jobs, guarantee retirement security, expand access to the American Dream, and ensure that the benefits of the ongoing economic recovery are felt by the many, not just the few.

    • This webpage provides information on the Teamsters Union’s legislative advocacy at both the federal and state level as well as our field activity to support those policy positions and to get strong labor candidates elected to office.  Among other resources, you will find our federal legislative scorecard, formal statements of policy position and communications to Capitol Hill,  a weekly update on federal legislative happenings, an overview of bills we are tracking at the state level, and quick links to take action on priority issues.

  • President's Message July 2018
    Updated On: Aug 07, 2018

    As you’re reading this the year is already half over; the time just seems to go by faster and faster. Earlier this year I reported that new master contracts were being negotiated with ABF Freight, UPS, and UPS Freight. I’m happy to say that the ABF national agreement was approved by the membership while work continues on several ABF supplemental agreements. Once all of the ABF supplemental agreements are ratified the negotiated wage and benefit package will go into effect retroactively to the start date of the new agreement. Additionally a handshake agreement was reached with UPS on their national agreement while work continues on several of their supplemental agreements. This is the first time in quite some time that an agreement could be reached with UPS on a national agreement before the contract’s expiration date. Once all of the UPS supplements are completed the agreements will be voted on by the membership. At UPS Freight the national committee continues to work toward an agreement with the company’s negotiating committee. I’d like to thank Local 776 Secretary-Treasurer Ron Hicks, who sat on the ABF National and Central PA negotiating committees for a job well done in securing an agreement for the ABF members. In Central PA the members ratified their supplement by a 73.5% margin.

    The Local 776 family picnic was held on June 10th. As the date approached I was apprehensive about the weather forecast and as the picnic drew nearer the forecast worsened. As I stood in the registration tent that morning, as the rain continued to fall, I was disappointed for our members and their families. Many were excited about having the picnic at Knoebels Amusement Park. Registration was up significantly over previous years. Everyone had plans to spend the day at the park enjoying themselves with family and friends. But as I stood there I also felt a strong sense of pride. Pride that despite the conditions members and their families came through the rain, the mud, stood in line to register, and find a place to sit with their family and friends supporting each other and supporting THEIR Local Union. An event of this magnitude could not be postponed until a later date due to the weather. All of the Local’s staff worked hard preparing for the event. Knoebels had made plans for the large Teamster crowd expected and could not postpone until a later date. But despite the conditions over 3,000 Teamster members and their families’ came out in support! The sun might not have shined that day but I was beaming with pride because of our members.

    The face of organized Labor changed drastically on June 27th when the U.S. Supreme Court released their decision in the “Janus v. AFSCME” case. This decision reverses over forty years of established labor law in the public sector. By backing the plaintiffs in “Janus v. AFSCME,” the high court’s decision is an attempt to limit the collective voices of not only government workers, but those in the private sector as well. While it is true that this ruling may create temporary roadblocks, public employees throughout the United States need to remain unified. We cannot allow the progress that working people have made in union organizing to be slowed down because of lawsuits that disregard the value of public employees. Dedicated everyday working people standing together built our middle class. Local 776 will honor that dedication by continuing to fight to give working people the promise of the American dream. That won’t end with the Janus decision. Local 776 will continue to organize, mobilize, and do whatever is necessary to achieve prosperity through collective action.



    Ed Thompson, IBT Local 776 President
