Welcome to the Home of Teamsters Local 988

I have had the pleasure of serving as the President of Local 988 since January 2007, and under my leadership, we have generated a tremendous amount of growth in our ranks. Currently, Local 988 boasts a membership of over 8,000 workers from various trades at more than 30 companies. We have achieved this by leveraging technology to build and improve Local 988, so that we continue to grow in strength, unity and solidarity.

Every day we fight for good wages, benefits, and retirement security because serving our members and their family is Local 988’s top priority. We want you to get the most of your union because you are the reason we are here, and this user-friendly website organizes the many resources available to you.

If you are considering membership, this site is an excellent source to learn the benefits of joining Local 988. For any further questions about membership, or if you are interested in organizing your workplace, please call us at 281-560-2000.

Information and education are important to us. Therefore, stay informed by downloading the Teamsters Local 988 mobile app from your Apple or Google Play Store. Additionally, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Local 988 invites you to familiarize yourself with our website and share feedback for our continued progress in meeting our members’ and potential members’ needs.


In Solidarity,


Robert Mele
