  • Teamsters understand the value in union membership. Higher pay, better benefits, and a greater voice in the workplace are standards set by union members that won’t be given up without a fight, even after the Supreme Court’s decision in the “Janus v. AFSCME” case.

    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 working people have made in union to be slowed down because of lawsuits that disregard the value of public employees.

    The Janus decision came about because anti-employee forces spent millions of dollars on lobbying and court challenges for over 40 years. Attacks from these outside groups, backed by secret donors, seek to eliminate the freedom of public employees to negotiate with their employer over the value of their work.

    Many Teamster members around the country have held conversations with their co-workers about the impact of the Supreme Court decision to reinforce the value of remaining unified. Whether at the worksite or at the ballot box, members are fighting back against these attacks.

    Public sector Teamsters have made it their career to serve their country and community, and any attempt to take away their freedom to join together is an attack on those who are the foundation of America.

    Our middle class was built by everyday working people, standing together in union. The Teamsters honor that history by continuing the fight to give working people the promise of the American dream.

    That won’t end with the Janus decision. The Teamsters will continue to organize, mobilize, and do whatever is necessary to achieve prosperity through collective action.

  • 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!

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

CONTRACT RATIFICATION UPDATE
UPS National Master and Supplements

Since the announcement that a tentative agreement had been reached with UPS, the National Negotiating Committee (NNC) has provided members with an unprecedented number of leaflets and summaries explaining the terms of the proposed contract.  We have conducted teleconferences to highlight the improvements in the new agreement and take questions from members, which were answered in writing and available on several electronic platforms.  Members supporting and opposing the tentative agreement have freely and energetically exchanged their views through social media and in the workplace, examining every aspect of the proposal.  The debate has been vigorous, and any member could easily obtain information necessary to determine whether to support or oppose the National Master Agreement as well as his/her applicable Supplement and Rider.

Once the ballot materials were printed and ready for mailing to the members, both the NNC and opponents to the agreement have repeatedly encouraged members to vote.  The NNC contacted members through postcards, social media messages, text messages and robo-calls urging them to exercise their right to vote.  Every Local Union reached out to its members with similar programs designed to encourage membership participation in the ratification.

Organized Labor beats back Mother Nature on Labor Day
The Labor Day 2018 events in the State of Wisconsin dealt with two forces. One force was the demostration of a strong Organized Labor Movement marching in unison and the second force of Mother Nature adding the unpredictable rain showers to the festivities at many events.
The 2018 Milwaukee Labor Day event is one of the largest assembly of Union Brothers and Sisters representing Organized Labor in the State. As in past years, Local 200 displays a very impressive line up of equipment and a strong and united Teamster membership.
The trek to the Summer Fest grounds through the streets of Milwaukee continues to be a moment where Organized Labor can be recognized by each other and the members of our communities. This event showcases Unionism and the commitment of the Brothers and Sisters to work together empowering those within our communities.
Local 200 partnered with other Trade Union's to sponsor a live feed from our friends at Resistance Radio, 1510 AM Radio, from the Milwaukee Labor Day event. There was also an introduction of Senator Tammy Baldwin by Teamster Retiree Bob Amsden to the crowd at the Milwaukee Labor Day event.
On behalf of the entire Executive Board, Secretary Treasurer Tom Millonzi and President Tom Bennett, we proudly thank our dedicated membership for making the Labor Day Event a success.

On Wednesday, August 28, 2018 a good friend of Local 200, Laurie Onasch, stopped in to talk to Business Agent Jeff Bandur in further detail related to the needed awareness to the Human Trafficking problems facing America, specifically in the 72 counties of Wisconsin. Laurie has joined with Human Trafficking Task Force for Greater Milwaukee with a determination to enlighten those that can assist this organization and others about this increasing risk facing unsuspecting and vulnerable individuals. Our membership can be instrumental in this awareness program with education and communication, so we have asked Laurie to stop by our September 2018 General Meeting to address the membership on this concern.

Please visit the Facebook page of Human Trafficking Task Force for Greater Milwaukee for more information or attend the September 11, 2018 General Meeting of Teamsters Local 200 at 6200 West Bluemound Rd, Milwaukee, WI. starting at 7pm.      

On Saturday, August 25, 2018 International Brotherhood of Teamsters Vice President John Murphy traveled to Milwaukee to speak to an attentive crowd of 200 Active and Retired Teamsters regarding the current status of the Butch Lewis Act. Brother Murphy went into great detail of the Butch Lewis Act for everyone in attendance with praising the involvement of the Retiree's, especially the Wisconsin Committee's, as to their efforts to bring the needed awareness to this crisis here at home and across this nation.
Secretary Treasurer Bill Carroll of Teamsters Local 344 and President Tom Bennett of Teamsters Local 200 addressed the crowd regarding the work underway to support candidates at all levels in Wisconsin and across this country that understand and support the Butch Lewis Act. The upcoming November Midterm Elections are critical in moving the Butch Lewis Act from a concept to a reality.
Bob Amsden, Bernie Anderson and Kenny Stribling discussed various recent events from the July 12, 2018 Pension Rally that was held in Columbus, Ohio to Brother Stribling's testimony at the Joint Select Committee in Washington DC.

ATTENTION TEAMSTER MEMBERS
 
With so much riding on the 2018 Mid Term Elections, the opportunities to be involved are crucial to our membership and our families. The Pension Crisis, the attack on workers rights by the introduction of negative legislation within the state and federal levels of government and the risk of continuing higher costs of Healthcare, the time is now to take action as a Teamster Activist. Member to Member interactions are absolutely required to network with other Teamsters to communicate and educate each other on the candidates that are standing along side of working families to support our mission. Retirees have fought to build this Union and their presence today is a strength as never seen before. The growth of their own internal networking on the Pension Crisis and their commitment to see the Butch Lewis Act passed shall not be discounted. Please connect with WITeamstersPower on Facebook or emailWITeamstersPower@outlook.com to be part of the solution.

RETIRED TEAMSTER ASKS CONGRESS TO SAVE TROUBLED PENSION FUNDS

636681327393671753-MJS-TEAMSTERS18-NWS-SEARS-1-1-42714827.JPGA Milwaukee man who has been among leaders of a movement to secure government help for troubled pension plans urged members of Congress Wednesday to “think, pray and do what’s right” for retirees threatened with loss of much of their pensions.

Kenneth Stribling, a retired Teamster covered by the Central States Pension Fund, a plan teetering on the brink of insolvency, testified in Washington, D.C., before a joint committee tasked with recommending steps to alleviate the mounting crisis in multi-employer pension plans.

Many of those plans, which cover union workers in fields such as trucking and construction and receive contributions from multiple employers, are on the verge of crashing financially.

And the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. projects its backstop program for multi-employer plans will itself be out of money by 2026.

In 2017, some 1 million Americans were covered by multi-employer plans that the PBGC said were on the road to insolvency and were deemed “critical and declining.

Chief among those troubled plans is Central States, which covers nearly 400,000 people, including about 23,000 in Wisconsin.

Expected to be insolvent by 2025, Central States has suffered as the deregulation of trucking eroded union clout over the past few decades and the numbers of workers and companies contributing to the fund shrank drastically.

In 1980, with deregulation just beginning, Central States had four working Teamsters for every retiree. Today, the plan pays benefits to five retirees for every worker.

In 2015, Central States proposed to preserve the plan by slashing promised pensions. Many retirees, including Stribling, would have seen their pensions cut by more than 50 percent.

The Treasury Department rejected that proposal in May 2016. But the woes faced by Central States and other multi-employer plans have continued.

To address those problems, Stribling and others have called for passage of legislation introduced late last year and named for Butch Lewis, a former Ohio Teamster leader active in the pension fight. Under the legislation, a new Treasury Department agency would borrow money to finance loans to help distressed pension plans.

Wednesday, Stribling called the Butch Lewis Act “the right solution.

He told members of the Joint Select Committee on Solvency of Multiemployer Pension Plans of how he was “devastated” when Central States proposed cutting his monthly benefits by 55 percent.

“You have no idea what it’s like to be retired on a fixed income and suddenly be told your monthly check will be cut in half,” Stribling said.

Then, he said, his wife, Beverly, a retired teacher, learned last November that she was terminally ill with pancreatic cancer. She continues to fight the disease.

Like everyone, Stribling said, the Teamster retirees “endure life’s storms – death, illness, physical and mental health challenges. Now we also have the burden of traveling through our golden years with an uncertain financial future, a future that had been promised to us.

He said the issue is “about fairness – keeping promises to working Americans who did everything right and are simply asking you to preserve what is due us now.

The joint select committee is to make its recommendations by Nov. 30.

 

On Thursday, July 13, 2018, members of Organized Labor stood together on the grounds of the Ohio   State House in support of the Butch Lewis Act of 2018.
" Our Wisconsin Retiree's have been at the forefront fighting to preserve our Pensions with no cuts. We know the Butch Lewis Act is a viable solution and the Joint Select Committee must act immediately, stated Secretary Treasurer Tom Millonzi to many in attendance yesterday at the Rally."

 

FROM THE DESK OF THE SECRETARY TREASURER

OPEN LETTER TO THE MEMBERS OF LOCAL 200

Brothers and Sisters of Teamsters Local 200,

As the current Secretary Treasurer and Principal officer of Teamsters Local 200, the Secretary Treasurer of the Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council 39 and a member on the Wisconsin Health Fund Board of Trustees, I have had the distinct honor of serving the membership in these capacities.

These positions come with great responsibility and I carry their weight with pride and respect.

Now after serving for over 11 years as your Principal Officer and 41 years as a Teamster my time has come to an end. I will serve the remainder of my term and not seek re-election as other opportunities for myself have recently presented themselves, that for the betterment of myself and my family I simply cannot turn away from.

I would like to sincerely thank every member of this Local Union and every Teamster of this state for the opportunity I have had to serve them, and I wish nothing but the best for you and your families moving forward.

 Respectfully and in solidarity,

Local 200 organizer Jared Wolski.

“Public sector employees wages and benefits are under attack by the current representatives in Madison as well as Washington DC, so having a group of workers, even a small group being able to sift through the fog and see the value of joining a union is encouraging,” said
