  • Taylor Farms workers in Tracy, California are standing up against poverty wages, disrespect and severe violations of their most basic rights. These 900 food processing workers in the Central Valley cut, wash and package salads and other products for the largest supplier of fresh-cut produce in the country. They feed the customers of major grocers, retailers and restaurant chains, including Walmart and McDonald’s.

    With a revenue of $1.8 billion in 2012, Taylor Farms can afford to treat its workers in Tracy with dignity and pay fair wages, just like their Teamster coworkers have at Taylor Farms’ facilities in Salinas, California. But when workers came together to organize with Teamsters Local 601, the company responded mercilessly. It fired, harassed, and punished workers for supporting the union. The company threatened immigrant workers with deportation, hiring an army of union-busters to run a non-stop fear campaign. During an NLRB election for union representation, Taylor Farms deployed a goon squad of supervisors to intimidate workers. The company’s violations were so egregious that the Labor Board impounded ballots while it investigates hundreds of Unfair Labor Practice charges.

    Workers in Tracy, following in the footsteps of labor leader and civil rights icon Cesar Chavez, are taking their fight to the public. The workers’ struggle for a better life for their families is supported by Teamsters in California and nationwide. We are building a movement for respect for the workers who feed America.

    ¡Si Se Puede!

  • The 2014 elections are right around the corner and this is your headquarters for the Teamsters Vote 2014 program. The page provides information on registering to vote, news about the Teamsters Vote 2014 campaign and a legislative scorecard that shows how your Member of Congress and Senators voted on the issues that matter to Teamster members and America’s working families.

  • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

    After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

  • 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.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • This is a list of Teamster locals whose members are either on strike or locked out by the employer. We will update this list on a monthly basis.

President Letter to Members
The Augusta Firefighter’s Association would like to state publically that we agree that the statement issued Tuesday, April 15th, by Lt. Daniel Rigdon, is entirely HIS opinion. It is NOT, however, factual. The Association did not have any knowledge of, nor did we provide any information to the commissioners against Chief James. When this Association pursues a cause, it is clearly stated and acknowledged by the Association. This Association is not self-serving, as stated in Lt. Rigdon’s letter, nor do we perform any type of “witch hunt” to harm anyone’s career. This Association fights for safety, fair compensation, benefits and equal treatment for ALL members of the Augusta Fire Department. When the Union fought for benefits, pension, holiday time, EMT/ Paramedic pay, etc.,it benefited ALL employees, including Lt. Rigdon. Furthermore, we must point out that the attack on our Association by Lt. Rigdon may constitute a misuse of county time and resources. Not only was it sent through official county email, during work hours, but utilizes administrative personnel as a contact person. The letter was distributed on-duty with requests to sign by administrative personnel, promoting intimidation and abuse of power, toward subordinate firefighters. In times of adversity we must remember that we fight for the same cause. All firefighters are heroes; some with commendations and awards, some with no recognition at all…yet ALL are worthy of praise. We chose this line of duty to help and serve people and public domain. A humble individual stands with the team and recognizes those that serve beside him. Firefighting is not a one man job. Randy Reese – President Augusta Firefighters Association -3357
