Teamsters Bring Goodwill For Children
Posted On: Dec 09, 2012
South Charleston, WV - Teamsters Local 175 in South Charleston has been very busy for the last few weeks.  At their regular December union meeting members and retirees joined together to raise more than $15,000.00 in toys, food, and donations for the Childrens Home Society. The Teamsters have helped provide for children and families for over 10 years.  The Childrens Home Society provides emergency youth shelters, foster care and adoption, and mentoring and volunteer programs.  Last year, due to the Teamsters help, the CHS was able to help 428 needy children and famiies.  This year the Teamsters increased their contributions 50% from last years record setting total. 

Scott Foley, regional director of the CHS remarked, " If it were not for the good hearts and generosity of the Teamsters, we could never help as many families as we do.  Words cannot describe the appreciation that we, as well as our children and families, have for all the Teamster members."  After the union meeting on Saturday morning, members and retirees shopped for toys and food.  These items will be delivered on Monday morning at 9:30am to the Childrens Home Society's Davis Child Center in Charleston. 

Ken Hall, president of Local 175 and secretary-treasurer of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, stated "I am incredibly proud of our members and retirees.  Our members feel that through their contracts they have a better standard of living than most and our retirees realize they have good pensions and this is their opportunity to give back.  Our Teamster children and grandchildren also participate and there is no greater lesson than for them to understand the importance of giving to those who are less fortunate. " 
The Teamsters contribute to other charities, with the most recent being their participation in the Alzheimer's Walk in October.

  • Welcome to Teamster Organizing!

    You've heard it said that the best defense is a good offense. In the war on workers, Teamster Organizing is on the offensive! We're winning power for workers across industries and across North America. Join us!

  • 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.

  • UPS Teamsters ratified the National Master UPS Agreement on June 26, 2013. The five-year contract includes increases in wages, health care and pension contributions and many other improvements. Several local Supplements and Riders did not pass, and the union is working through an internal, democratic process to resolve the issues. At UPS Freight, members overwhelmingly approved a new national five-year contract on Jan. 12, 2014. 

  • There are about 350 of us who work at EXAL in Youngstown, Ohio, where we manufacture aluminum bottles for large customers like Budweiser and Coca-Cola. We are uniting with Teamsters Local 377 to improve respect and working conditions at our company. Thank you for following our webpage. Fill in the “Join Our Fight” box below with your information to receive text message updates.

  • 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.


  • In July 2011, the plan to restructure YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) aimed at saving more than 25,000 Teamster freight jobs was successfully completed. The restructuring has saved good Teamster freight jobs. This page is dedicated to providing our YRCW members updates about developments that affect them.

  • Teamsters at Republic Services/Allied Waste have stood together in recent years to fight for strong contracts, including going on strike and supporting their fellow striking workers. Workers continue to fight for strong contracts that include retirement security at the second largest solid waste company. This campaign page is dedicated to those ongoing efforts.
