Current Campaigns
  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) recently concluded and a tentative agreement has been reached. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to endorse the National Agreement and the Central-Southern Supplement, paving the way for members to vote. The Eastern and Western Supplements were approved in 2016, and will not be re-voted. However, all carhaul members will get to exercise their right to vote on the National Agreement and General Monetary Changes.

    Ballots will be mailed out on or about March 10 and are tentatively scheduled to be counted on March 30.

    The tentative agreement is from September 1, 2015, until May 31, 2021.

  • The IBT-Airline Division has established this page as a place to get up-to-date information about the Republic Airways Holdings (RAH) bankruptcy.  Please check here for the latest information about the bankruptcy.

  • 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 Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

  • 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.

  • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

    There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

    The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

    But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.

  • Teamsters are been standing together to protect good jobs at Sysco and US Foods. Our solidarity on many fronts helped to defeat the mega-merger of the two companies, which would have put thousands of jobs at risk. But challenges remain as both companies refine their plans. Join our campaign to ensure these foodservice giants honor their agreements with 11,500 Teamsters and help us bring more Sysco and US Foods workers into the Teamster family. LIKE our Facebook page, here.

Right-to-work Legislation Matters to Working Families

By Congressmen Tom Udall, Martin Heinrich, Ben Ray Lujan and Michelle Lujan Grisham | Feb 7th, 2015

As the national economy shows signs of real improvement, New Mexico’s recovery has been challenging and slow. Working families want to know when we will see more jobs, higher salaries and access to quality education at every level. The state Legislature has an opportunity to put New Mexico in a position to provide that economic security and rebuild the middle class.

Unfortunately, the first bill to gain traction at the Roundhouse is a divisive plan backed by out-of-state political operatives designed to divide working families. The so-called Right-to-Work plan championed by special interests would do more harm than good. Consider these consequences:

• In states with similar anti-worker laws, workers earn, on average, $5,000 less each year than their counterparts in competing states.

• Six in 10 states with the highest unemployment rates have these anti-worker laws.

• Twelve of the 14 states with the worst pay gap between men and women are anti-worker states.

• Workers in states with these anti-worker laws earn fewer benefits.

• Worker safety suffers in these anti-worker states where the rate of deaths on the job is 54.4 percent higher.

The Legislature’s Jobs Council has produced bipartisan ideas to create jobs and help rebuild New Mexico’s economy. Democrats and Republicans got together with business and labor leaders, local and state officials and economic developers who endorsed these ideas.

So it is disheartening to see the new House Republican leadership using its new found power to focus on legislation that would hurt working families. And it’s disappointing to see voices of opposition silenced during committee debate on this issue.

We have opposed anti-worker policies like these at the federal level because unions have long provided benefits for all workers, regardless of membership, by fighting for benefits many now take for granted such as overtime, workplace safety and paid leave.

Legitimate studies are proving that anti-worker laws would weaken New Mexico’s already struggling middle class. Employees with unions at their backs are able to help raise the bar on pay and benefits for all workers in every industry. Anti-worker laws diminish that power. That’s why working families in New Mexico have stood strong against such policies every time outsider special interest groups have tried to force them on us.

The fact of the matter is that people are already free to join a union or not — that’s the law.

When corporate-backed special interest groups tell people to drop their union memberships, working people suffer the consequences. Non-union workers lose the guarantee that they will be heard when it comes to working conditions, benefits and wages. Working men and women in New Mexico know that real employee freedom means having a voice in the workplace.

The New Mexico Legislature has a history of standing up for working families. We urge state lawmakers to focus on growing our economy, creating well-paying 21st century jobs, investing in our schools and strengthening our middle class. There’s so much good that can be done for our state, let’s focus the effort where it will really count by putting New Mexico’s working families first.

U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich are Democratic senators from New Mexico. U.S. Reps. Ben Ray Luján represents the 3rd Congressional District and Michelle Lujan Grisham, the 1st, in the House of Representatives.
