  • This Web page provides the latest updates for the national contract, riders and supplements that cover about 3,500 Teamsters at DHL Express.

  • 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 page provides the latest contract information to the 7,500 Teamsters—drivers, dockworkers and office staff—employed by ABF Freight System, Inc.

  • 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 ‘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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
    More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
    Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

  • The contributions of black members to the success of the Teamsters Union are numerous, varied and as old as the union itself. This month, the Teamsters Union spotlights some of those contributions.

Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee Scholarship Winners Honored
Updated On: Oct 29, 2015
The Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee recognized its 2015 scholarship recipients during a night of celebration at the Third Annual Gala Dinner Dance on March 21.

“From Day One, the Women’s Committee has made a commitment to the education of Teamster women, and out of that commitment, our scholarship program was born,” said Women’s Committee President Maggie Jenkins of Teamsters Local 727. “We are so proud to honor these incredible working Teamster women who are continuing their educations to empower themselves and their union sisters and brothers.”

The Women’s Committee awards five $1,000 scholarships annually to working members who demonstrate a desire to excel and reach their education goals. The 2015 scholarship winners are:

Susan Motley, Teamsters Local 743: Motley has been a member of Local 743 since 1982. She is a senior at DePaul University and will graduate in August from their School of New Learning with a bachelor of arts in applied behavioral science.

Sheila Nesbit, Teamsters Local 743: Nesbit works for the University of Chicago. She is in her junior year at Governors State University and holds a 3.8 grade point average.

Jeanetta Reece, Teamsters Local 777: Reece is a bus driver for First Student and has been a union member for more than 30 years. She is furthering her education at South Suburban College in South Holland, IL.

Shameka Smith, Teamsters Local 777: Smith is a First Student bus attendant. She is studying cosmetology at John Amico School of Hair Design in Oak Forest, IL.

Annie Ware, Teamsters Local 743: Ware, a senior library specialist at Governors State University, is the first two-time recipient of the Women’s Committee scholarship. She is working toward an Educational Doctorate in Interdisciplinary Leadership with a concentration in Social Not-For-Profit Entrepreneurship at Governors State.

Jenkins, along with Women’s Committee Secretary-Treasurer Roberta Lester of Local 731 and Recording Secretary Lisa Beecher of Local 142, presented the scholarship winners with certificates.

“Teamster women are a powerful force in our union, and they are making a difference,” said John T. Coli, President of Joint Council 25 and Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727. “We are so proud of the work they do, and we are proud to support the Women’s Committee.”

The nearly 300 guests in attendance enjoyed dinner, drinks and dancing into the night in Le Grand Salon of Victoria Beau Jolie in Schiller Park. Guests also partook in the fun “selfie photo booth,” and everyone received a martini glass as a thank you from the Women’s Committee.

Proceeds from the Third Annual Gala Dinner Dance benefit the continuing education of Teamster women through seminars, workshops and a scholarship program. Additionally, the Women’s Committee will be sponsoring a rank-and-file member to attend the 2015 Teamsters Women’s Conference Aug. 27-29 in Boston.
