Current Campaigns
  • The IBT and your Atlanta Committee members, Geoff Maloney and Chris Rogers have been negotiating with Company management since 2010; almost as long as the IBT have been negotiating for the Express Jet CRJ members. 

    The Company has now given us their final, closeout proposal on wages. Neither the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Airline Division, the Business Agents of Local 210 and Local 19, nor your rank-and-file committee members are recommending this be ratified. A detailed letter from your ExpressJet CRJ Negotiating Committee can be found here. A copy of the company’s last, best and final offer can be found here.

    Ballots were mailed on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.  Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting.  Voting will close on Monday, July 10, and will be counted the same day. 

  • 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.

  • 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 the ongoing effort to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Since 1994, NAFTA has devastated working families, putting corporate profits ahead of people.  What’s worse is that NAFTA has become the blueprint for all other trade agreements, from the way that it was negotiated in secret, to the bad provisions that have made their way into every agreement that has been signed since then.  Now, NAFTA is being renegotiated and we demand that it be reframed to work for workers instead of corporate interests.

  • 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.

     

Truck Roadeo 2014
Updated On: Jul 22, 2014

There were 33 Teamster Drivers that competed in the 2014 Truck Roadeo. Teamsters Local 492, which is a sponsor of the Roadeo, would like to take this time to thank everyone that competed. It takes a lot of time, effort, skill, knowledge and practice to compete in these events, and we all know that Teamster Drivers are the best in the industry; it’s great to be able to show off those skills. We would also like to thank those that volunteered and to all the families that go out to the Roadeo to support these drivers.

Unfortunately, for some reason, some of the family members were told they could not take pictures of the event this year, so we only have one photo so far, and it is from the Awards Ceremony. So if you have pictures you would like to submit please notify us by clicking here.   

ABF had 16 Drivers that competed which included Craig Arellano, Gerald Benavidez, Ricky Lucas, Carl Marquez, James Morgan, Ronald Pacheco and Kirk Weis.

1st place in Sleeper, Ralph Garcia                      

This was Ralph’s 12th win in a row; he also won the National Championship last year.

1st Place in Tanker, Joseph Carrillo                  

Joseph was rookie of the year last year;

2nd place in the 5 Axle, Charlie Estrada

2nd place in Flatbed, Duane Oldfield

2nd place in Twins, Chad Sullins            

3rd place in the 4 axle, Robert Delgado

3rd place in the 5 axle Tito Torres

3rd place in Flatbed Michael Contreras

3rd place in Straight Truck, Donald Woods

ABF won the two categories eligible for in the Fleet Safety Awards which were the 100,000 to 500,000 miles for their city operation and over 5,000,001 miles for the 3rd time in a row for the line haul operation.

ABF also had 2 Drivers of the Month, George Mackey for May and Ralph Garcia for June.

Debbie Archer was selected as the Volunteer of the Year. She has been by Randy Archers side (ABF Line Haul Manger) at the Championships for all 14 years he has been involved.  She truly loves making team members and their families feel like they are part of the family. She also helped with the Safety Management Council tents, trailer, etc. Thanks Debbie for all you do! Thanks also to Retiree Robert Aragon for volunteering again this year.  

Update July 22, 2014- Brother Duane Oldfield who had placed second in the Flatbed division will now be competing in the Nationals along with Ralph Garcia (Sleeper division) and Joseph Carrillo (Tanker division), all from ABF, as the driver who had finished ahead of him subsequently resigned from his employment which disqualified him from further competition.  The National competition will be held in Pittsburgh, PA. the week of August 12th, 2014.  Good Luck to the three of you!  Represent yourselves, your Union and your Employer with class and professionalism!!  Bring back the “Gold”.

Sysco NM had 3 drivers compete including Aaron Clanan who took home “Rookie of the Year”, also Sonny Mariano and Mario Martinez.

UPS-TeamOne (TDI/SCS/Sara Lee Bakeries) had 4 drivers participate; Steve Lopez, Cameron Misner, Jose Seijas, and Brian Thais.
