  • Welcome to Teamster Organizing!

    You've heard it said that the best defense is a good offense. In the war on workers, Teamster Organizing is on the offensive! We're winning power for workers across industries and across North America. Join us!

  • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

    After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

  • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
    More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
    Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

  • UPS Teamsters ratified the National Master UPS Agreement on June 26, 2013. The five-year contract includes increases in wages, health care and pension contributions and many other improvements. Several local Supplements and Riders did not pass, and the union is working through an internal, democratic process to resolve the issues. At UPS Freight, members overwhelmingly approved a new national five-year contract on Jan. 12, 2014. 

  • There are about 350 of us who work at EXAL in Youngstown, Ohio, where we manufacture aluminum bottles for large customers like Budweiser and Coca-Cola. We are uniting with Teamsters Local 377 to improve respect and working conditions at our company. Thank you for following our webpage. Fill in the “Join Our Fight” box below with your information to receive text message updates.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • This is a list of Teamster locals whose members are either on strike or locked out by the employer. We will update this list on a monthly basis.

     

  • In July 2011, the plan to restructure YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) aimed at saving more than 25,000 Teamster freight jobs was successfully completed. The restructuring has saved good Teamster freight jobs. This page is dedicated to providing our YRCW members updates about developments that affect them.

  • Teamsters at Republic Services/Allied Waste have stood together in recent years to fight for strong contracts, including going on strike and supporting their fellow striking workers. Workers continue to fight for strong contracts that include retirement security at the second largest solid waste company. This campaign page is dedicated to those ongoing efforts.

TEAMSTERS JOINT COUNCIL 25 WOMEN'S COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR TEAMSTERS
Posted On: Nov 08, 2013
Five $1,000 Scholarships Will Be Awarded to Members Continuing Their Education

The Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee proudly announces the launch of its scholarship program, which is aimed at assisting Teamsters who are continuing their education.

The Women’s Committee will award five $1,000 scholarships to members who demonstrate a desire to excel and reach their education goals.

“The Women’s Committee has made a strong commitment to the continued education of Teamster women, and this scholarship program is a direct result of that commitment,” said Debra Simmons-Peterson, President of the Women’s Committee and Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 743.

The Women’s Committee, which was founded in 2009 by Joint Council 25 President John T. Coli, brings together representatives from each Joint Council 25 affiliate to strengthen communication and leadership opportunities for women throughout our union.

All applicants must be Women’s Committee members and Teamster members in good standing and must be enrolled or enrolling in an undergraduate college, university or community college program, graduate school or technical or vocational program. Women and men are eligible to apply. Additionally, applicants must submit an essay on the topic: “How will obtaining your education empower you as a Teamster, and how will you use that empowerment to help fellow Teamsters?”

Completed applications and essays must be forwarded to the applicant’s local union for verification of Teamster membership, and the local union will submit the paperwork to the Women’s Committee. The deadline for applications is Jan. 17, 2014.

Scholarship recipients are expected to be announced at the Women’s Committee’s Second Annual Gala Dinner Dance on March 8, 2014.
