Organizing Power

The Teamsters are the largest union in North America

You don’t get to be the largest union in North America without knowing how to organize. Whether you’re at a job site that we currently service, or you want to form a union at your work site, we have the knowledge and tools to help you realize your goals.


Member Services

We’re here for YOU.

We recognize that we’re only here because of our members. Because of that, we have a dedicated in house team ready to assist you with all of your questions, including health care and retirement.

Also, as a labor union, we give our workers the power to negotiate for more favorable working conditions, better wages, and better benefits.


Relationship Building

We understand the power of relationships.

Whether it’s building political capital to further the goals of the Labor Movement at the local, state, and federal level; forming a coalition to help during contract negotiations; or just building a great team of stewards who work in concert with our membership, we understand the value of relationships.

Through our relationships, we are able to be the champions for a more responsible government, great education, individual rights, and the expansion of individual opportunities.
