    What We Do
    The Teamsters are known as the champion of freight drivers and warehouse workers, but have organized workers in virtually every occupation imaginable, both professional and non-professional, private sector and public sector..
     
    Who We Are

    The Teamsters are America’s largest, most diverse union. In 1903, the Teamsters started as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. These drivers were the backbone of America’s robust economic growth, but they needed to organize to wrest their fair share from greedy corporations. Today, the Union’s task is exactly the same.

     
    Who We Represent
    Our 1.2 million members are public defenders in Minnesota; vegetable workers in California; sanitation workers in New York; brewers in St. Louis; newspaper workers in Seattle; construction workers in Las Vegas; zoo keepers in Pennsylvania; healthcare workers in Rhode Island; bakery workers in Maine; airline pilots, secretaries and police officers. Name the occupation and chances are we represent those workers somewher

    Know your Weingarten rights!!!

    In 1975, the United States Supreme Court upheld a National Labor Relations Board decision that employees have a right to union representation at investigatory interviews.

    These rights have become known as the Weingarten Rights.

    During an investigatory interview, the Supreme Court ruled that the following rules apply:

    Rule 1: The employee must make a clear request for union representation before or during the interview. The employee cannot be punished for making this request.

    Rule 2: After the employee makes the request, the employer must choose from among three options:

    • Grant the request and delay questioning until the union representative arrives and (prior to the interview continuing) the representative has a chance to consult privately with the employee.
    • Deny the request and end the interview immediately; or
    • Give the employee a clear choice between having the interview without representation or ending the interview.

    Rule 3: If the employer denies the request for union representation, and continues to ask questions, it commits an unfair labor PRACTICE, and the employee has a right to refuse to answer. The employer may not discipline the employee for such a refusal.

    A typical statement to invoke your Weingarten Rights is:

           "If this discussion could in any way lead to me being disciplined, terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative, officer or steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to participate."

    Workers at Amazon Build Power, Ready to Join Newly Chartered ALU-IBT Local 1 Press Contact: Kara Deniz Email: kdeniz@teamster.org (STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.) — Amazon Labor Union members have voted to affiliate with the 1.3 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters by a near unanimous 98.3 percent in favor. The labor affiliation brings renewed representation and powerful resources to Amazon workers as they organize nationwide and demand a contract from the trillion-dollar global corporation. ALU-International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Local 1, which will be newly chartered, will represent the roughly 5,500 Amazon warehouse workers at JFK8 in Staten Island, N.Y., and will have jurisdiction for Amazon warehouse workers across New York’s five boroughs. “Workers at Amazon—in the warehouses or behind the wheel—have proven they have the strength, unity, and determination to take on the greediest employer on the planet, and win,” said Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien. “Together, with hard work, courage, and conviction, the Teamsters and ALU will fight fearlessly to ensure Amazon workers secure the good jobs and safe working conditions they deserve in a union contract. The Teamsters set the standard with our agreement protecting 340,000 UPS warehouse workers and drivers in this industry. You can be certain that we will hold Amazon to these same standards, and not the other way around. As long as Amazon exploits and abuses workers, this corporate bully will have to answer to the Teamsters and ALU, standing together.” “On behalf of the Amazon Labor Union, I’m proud of our members choosing a path to victory. We’re now stronger than ever before,” said ALU President Chris Smalls. “Having the support of 1.3 million Teamsters to take on Amazon gives us tremendous worker power and the opportunities to demand better conditions for our members and, most importantly, to secure a contract at JFK8.”
    NJ Bills Testimony Photo TEMP Act, Captive Audience Legislation Makes Progress in State Legislature Press Contact: Matt McQuaid Phone: (202) 624-6877 Email: mmcquaid@teamster.org (TRENTON, N.J.) – New Jersey Teamsters are hard at work lobbying to advance two pieces of legislation critical to improving conditions for workers throughout the state. One bill would ban mandatory attendance at captive audience meetings, while another would require employers to protect their workers from exposure to extreme temperatures. “New Jersey continues to be on the frontlines of protecting the working class at the state level and the Teamsters are leading the charge,” said Al Rispoli, President of Teamsters Joint Council 73. “I’d like to thank State Senator Joe Cryan, Senator Joe Lagana, Deputy Assembly Majority Leader Anthony Verrelli, Assemblymembers Annette Quijano, William Sampson, Gabriel Rodriguez, and everyone else in the legislature who has stood with us in our fight on behalf of New Jersey workers.” Teamsters Local 177 Shop Steward Gerry Cortez recently testified in favor of S-2422/A-3521, which would establish an occupational heat stress standard and mandate that each employer develop, implement, and maintain an effective heat-related illness and injury prevention plan for its workforce. Cortez told the committee that passing the bill would extend many of the protections that he and co-workers at UPS won to the entire package delivery business.
    -960973850355690255 Teamsters Local 264 Members End Strike, Win Significant Pay Increase Press Contact: Matt McQuaid Phone: (202) 624-6877 Email: mmcquaid@teamster.org (BUFFALO, N.Y.) – Following a four-day strike, Teamsters Local 264 members at Tops Markets have overwhelmingly ratified new four-year collective bargaining agreements. The new contracts cover 550 drivers, warehouse workers, and pharmacy workers. Local 264 members received strong support from Local 118 and Local 449, who honored and supported the picket line. “As Teamsters, unity and solidarity are our ultimate strength,” said Brian Dickman, President of Local 264. “Our members stood strong on the picket line and secured a historic 20 percent wage increase. I want to congratulate our members and personally thank the members of Locals 118 and 449 for their unwavering support and solidarity.” Teamsters at Tops were forced onto the picket line after the grocery chain failed to offer acceptable contracts. The strike resulted in new agreements that include a $6 wage increase over four years, maintain union health care, and improve sick leave policies. “Tops attempted to offer Local 264 members subpar contracts, but our members stayed strong and fought for what they deserve,” said Tom Erickson, Director of the Teamsters Warehouse Division and Teamsters Central Region International Vice President. “The strength and resilience of these Teamsters directly led to lucrative contracts that provide the wages and benefits they rightfully deserve.” Teamsters Local 264 represents over 4,000 workers in the private and public sectors throughout upstate New York.
