  • 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.

  • Teamsters are standing together to protect good jobs as Sysco, the country’s largest foodservice provider, attempts to purchase its only national competitor, US Foods. Join our campaign to demand that Sysco and US Foods honor their agreements with 11,500 Teamsters and protect the livelihoods of the men and women who make these companies leaders in the industry.

  • Taylor Farms workers in Tracy, California are standing up against poverty wages, disrespect and severe violations of their most basic rights. These 900 food processing workers in the Central Valley cut, wash and package salads and other products for the largest supplier of fresh-cut produce in the country. They feed the customers of major grocers, retailers and restaurant chains, including Walmart and McDonald’s.

    With a revenue of $1.8 billion in 2012, Taylor Farms can afford to treat its workers in Tracy with dignity and pay fair wages, just like their Teamster coworkers have at Taylor Farms’ facilities in Salinas, California. But when workers came together to organize with Teamsters Local 601, the company responded mercilessly. It fired, harassed, and punished workers for supporting the union. The company threatened immigrant workers with deportation, hiring an army of union-busters to run a non-stop fear campaign. During an NLRB election for union representation, Taylor Farms deployed a goon squad of supervisors to intimidate workers. The company’s violations were so egregious that the Labor Board impounded ballots while it investigates hundreds of Unfair Labor Practice charges.

    Workers in Tracy, following in the footsteps of labor leader and civil rights icon Cesar Chavez, are taking their fight to the public. The workers’ struggle for a better life for their families is supported by Teamsters in California and nationwide. We are building a movement for respect for the workers who feed America.

    ¡Si Se Puede!

  • 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.

  • 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.

On Wednesday, December 17, 2014 a gathering was held at the future proposed site for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Kenosha to encourage the community to support this project. President Tom Bennett was in attendance to offer the support for this project as the Local Union has  involved with this concept for over a decade. Community leaders in business, politics and education spoke on the importance of this project that will bring 10,600 jobs into the area, and  to include hundreds of millions of dollars of economic growth. Wisconsin State Senator Bob Wirch spoke to the crowded venue about the positive affects this project would bring to Southeastern Wisconsin. Everyone in attendance was directed to call the Governor’s Office and ask for him to approve this proposed project. The decision about the approval should come from the Governor’s desk during the next 60 days.

With the Country’s Mid-Term elections behind us, we as an organization look to the future. The goals of the Local Union are to understand the needs of the working families within our own membership, our communities and within the State of Wisconsin. With that understanding, the determination to secure living wages, affordable healthcare and retirement security shall be on the forefront.  

Organizing the un-organized employees shall be an effort we collectively share. The work to be done can only be accomplished as whole, with each member participating. Workers have endured decades of advancement within the workplace. With that advancement, we shall promote continuation and strengthen our presence.

As we proceed with determination, we do so cautiously. Listening can be crucial. As we listen, we undertake the role of leadership. Then our actions will reflect sound decisions for generations to come.  

In Solidarity
