    • 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.

    • 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!

      Teamsters Joint Council No. 25 Women’s Committee donated over 16,000 personal hygiene products to the Chicago Period Project at the First Quarter Membership Meeting on Saturday February 15th. Women’s Committee members rotated in groups of ten to help sort out the of thousands of donations.

      The Chicago Period Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower homeless and in-need people to experience their periods with dignity, by providing free menstrual supplies to organizations like shelters, community centers and Chicago Public Schools.

      The non-profit organization was brought to the attention of the Women’s Committee’s Executive Board by Local 727 Executive Board member Caleen Carter-Patton. “It’s really great to help people who don’t have access to these supplies and even if they do it’s really expensive so being able to give to other women who need it is so important,” said Carter-Patton.

      Several affiliates helped to make the donation drive a huge success; Joint Council No. 25, Local 743, TNBC, Local 710, Local 727 and Teamster shops that held individual donation drives.  Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee President Reed-Bowers expressed her gratitude to Local 743 President Simmons-Peterson for hosting the event.  “This was the first membership meeting that I resided over as president of the Women’s Committee and I was so proud to have it at my home local.” Reed said. “It was the perfect location and I would like to extend my gratitude to President Simmons for her hospitality. I would also like to thank the Women’s Committee Executive Board for their efforts with pulling this event together. Working with such a great group of women makes my job so much easier,” President Reed said.

      Last year, JC25 Women’s Committee in partnership with Teamsters Local 743 raised over $13,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society’s 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks. 

      This year the Women's Committee and Local 743 will again join forces and has committed to be the popular Pink Chair Sponsor at the Soldier Field Walk which will be held Saturday October 19, 2019.

      The American Cancer Society's, Making Strides Walks event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5-mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

      We're excited to build on last year's success of raising over $13,000 to fund breast cancer research. 'The dedication and commitment of our walkers knows no limits. We certain that we can successfully meet this year's goal, building on the momentum from last year’s walk.
