  • 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.

Power is too much for some!
Posted On: Aug 10, 2016

This message is for the members who are afraid of their manager. The manager has been around for many years running the business with fear in most of the workers at the job-site. This manager has developed a HOSTILE WORKING ENVIRONMENT!!!  Local 272 members have witness unwanted sexual teasing, jokes, remarks, sexual comments, viewing neck massages, touching an person's clothing, (uniform) hanging around that person (co-worker) most of the day, taking said person to lunch, and driving places while worker is on the clock. I spoke to this manager about his actions in the early part of June 2016. He denies the union's allegations knowing that, not one of the employees/member who informed myself of these activities, would come forward. He's right so far, I have reported him to the compaines H.R. reps. without revealing the names of the workers who have stated the above. It's heresay until one worker comes forward the company will not conduct an investigation. (I have heard the complaints from serveral of our members, when they were at work, or when they were at home and able to speak freely.... They all feel, nothing would happen to this manager because he's been employed there for over 20 years. This manager is a sneakie person, never sincere. I've been a union rep. for nearly 26 years, have attended many Labor Law session in Miami, Fla., Baltimore, MD., Las Vegas, NV. Detroit, MI., heading to San Francisco, CA. in September 2016, just to name a few. I don't plan to stop investigating this case. I need you workers to come forward.....Stop being afraid, the company is aware but you are preventing them from taking a stands. You can call a female, or male Human Resourse person to speak with. I'm here for you whenever you come forward. You would be free of the stess. The whole unit is effective....This union stands behind you.....I will not stop, he should resign now before he's exposed to the world.  

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law thatprobhibits employers from discriminationg against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion etc.
