Martin Luther King Remembered

On the night before he died, Martin Luther King gave a speech about the dignity of labor. It still rings true. He was in Memphis, Tenn., supporting sanitation workers' rights to respect and a decent wage. He said: “Whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity and it has worth.” Dr.

  • The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is closely monitoring the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Working with other unions, public health officials and other experts in our Safety and Health Department, the Teamsters Union is focused on providing our affiliate locals, 1.4 million members, and staff with the most up-to-date information and resources to help everyone in this difficult time. 

    Many Teamster members across multiple industries are seeing the effects of the widespread transmission of the disease caused by the virus, known as COVID-19. These workers are at increased risk if they frequently interact with potentially infected or infected individuals.

  • On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Dean Foods filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It’s important to note that many companies file Chapter 11 in an effort to reorganize their debt and capital structure to facilitate a sale to a strategic/industry buyer or to a financial buyer with the goal to continue operating its core lines of business – and one of those options appears to be the case here.   

    The Teamsters Dairy Conference will continue to update Local Unions and our nearly 5,000 Teamster members working at Dean Foods on key developments in the bankruptcy case. We will post relevant newsletters, articles and key dates in this space.

  • 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!

October 2, 2018 - WTWT Lower Retiree Self-Pay Contibution Rates (for those not on medicare)

September 15, 2018 - October Notice for Nov 5th Retiree Insurance Meeting

January 3, 2018- For those of you working for ABF or YRC, Western Teamsters Welfare Trust (WTWT) handles your Dental benefits. Since September 1, 2011, the PPO for dental coverage was through Carington MaximumCare Network. Western Teamsters Welfare Trust (WTWT) has changed their PPO network to Anthem BlueCross Dental Network as of January 1, 2018. Click Here to read the letter sent out in November 2017. If you were not using Carington before, you were likely using a WTWT Non-PPO provider, which you can continue to do.

The Anthem BlueCross Dental Network has nothing to do with your current Health insurance, it is for Dental only.   

You may have recently received Dental cards for The Anthem BlueCross Dental Network. WTWT will be mailing new cards again by the end of January 2018 to replace the ones you received recently because the phone number in the back is incorrect. Please watch the mail for it. If you have any questions you can call 1-800-872-5439.
