    • Teamsters understand the value in union membership. Higher pay, better benefits, and a greater voice in the workplace are standards set by union members that won’t be given up without a fight, even after the Supreme Court’s decision in the “Janus v. AFSCME” case.

      While it is true that this ruling may create temporary roadblocks, public employees throughout the United States need to remain unified. We cannot allow the progress working people have made in union to be slowed down because of lawsuits that disregard the value of public employees.

      The Janus decision came about because anti-employee forces spent millions of dollars on lobbying and court challenges for over 40 years. Attacks from these outside groups, backed by secret donors, seek to eliminate the freedom of public employees to negotiate with their employer over the value of their work.

      Many Teamster members around the country have held conversations with their co-workers about the impact of the Supreme Court decision to reinforce the value of remaining unified. Whether at the worksite or at the ballot box, members are fighting back against these attacks.

      Public sector Teamsters have made it their career to serve their country and community, and any attempt to take away their freedom to join together is an attack on those who are the foundation of America.

      Our middle class was built by everyday working people, standing together in union. The Teamsters honor that history by continuing the fight to give working people the promise of the American dream.

      That won’t end with the Janus decision. The Teamsters will continue to organize, mobilize, and do whatever is necessary to achieve prosperity through collective action.

    • 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!

    • The Teamsters Military Assistance Program (TMAP) assists Active Duty Service members that are transitioning, Veterans and Military spouses with job opportunities with responsible employers.

    • 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.

      What's New

      Joint Council 25 Women's Committee's Annual Health fair

      The Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee’s Annual Health fair was held on November 3, 2018 at Local 731.

      Vendors from various health agencies in the area were on hand to talk one on one with members about the services they provide.

      President Diahann Goode expressed gratitude to all the health care professionals who participated in the health fair, the various vendor presentations, health screening and flu shots given by Osco Pharmacists

      There were representatives on hand from the American Cancer Society, Amore Yoga, Costco, Medula Wellness, Cook County Health, Get Better Fitness and more.

      Chef Gloria Hafer from the City of Chicago’s, After School Matters Program, demonstrated to the attendees how to make a healthy and delicious chicken cacciatore.

      Those attending also gained insight from financial planner Nesha Mohip of Mohip Financial Solutions on how to set and obtain financial goals.  

      Attendees were able to do some early holiday shopping with vendors from Mary Kay, Monica Morgan at She Is Me Accessories, Aromatic Joy Bracelets, and Little Buddha Organics.

      Val Densmore from Desserts by Densmore was on hand to provide a little something sweet.

      The Women’s Committee Executive Board extends their gratitude to president Terrence Hancock of Local 731  for hosting this year’s event and Attorney Howard Ankin of Ankin Law for his generous donation.  

      Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee and Teamsters Local 743 raised over $13,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society’s 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks. Local 731’s Roberta Lester, single handedly raised over $8,000 for the cause.

      Collectively over 100 Teamsters and their families participated in the Solider Field as and the Park Ridge event. Each 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.

      This year the Women’s Committee and Local 743 committed to be the finish line sponsor at the Soldier Feld Walk which was held on October 20th. The team was furnished with their own tent and provided snacks and giveaways for the team members and a backdrop for photos.

      From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.

      Get your free flu shot at the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Commitee's 2018 Health Fair!

      Flu season is just around the corner and that means it’s time for everyone to get a flu shot. December to February is the Peak flu season in the U.S. Influenza is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently, but millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu. A Teamster Pharmacist will be on hand to administer flu shots at the Health Fair at no cost. You can also have your blood pressure and glucose tested by Cook County Health professionals.     

      The Women's Committee is holding a sock drive at the 2018 Health Fair. Please bring new any sized infant to adult sized pair(s) of sock to donate for the comfort of the homeless. Read More...
