Being A Union Member Has It's Benefits

It is paid on your behalf by the Teamster Local 492 at no extra cost to you. You and your employer are not required to contribute to the plan. Contributions are made 

strictly by the Teamsters. These benefits cover only Teamsters members. Life with dues pays cash to your designated beneficiary. Fill out or update your form today by Clicking Here.  View the Plan Summary Here.

The Benefits of Being a Teamster

In addition to job protection, benefits and wages provided for in Teamster Contracts, the International Union provides for additional services offered at a discounted cost to the membership. Because of the strength and size of our membership, the International is able to negotiate these lower costs for services ranging from legal to medical to financial. We are always on the lookout for ways to save our Teamster families money and increase their prosperity.
