Joining The Teamsters
Thank you for taking an interest in the New Mexico Teamsters Union Local 492.
The Teamsters are widely considered the most powerful Union in the world. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), Formed in 1903 now represents a diverse membership of blue-collar and professional workers in both the public and private sectors. Our union has approximately 1.4 million members nationwide and over 2500 members are served by Local 492 over the entire state of New Mexico.
As you can see from our website, we have many companies that we represent. The majority of these companies hire their employees "in house." After hired, the new employee then signs up to become a member of Teamsters Local 492. The reasons they join are many but include pension, insurance, superior wages, and of course job security. The way most become Teamsters is by getting hired by one of the companies we already represent.
If you would like to apply for any of these companies, you can find a list of them by clicking Here or click on any of the links below to apply online.
