Who Are the Teamsters?


The Teamsters are working men and women just like you – 1.4 million of us from across the United States and Canada.  We are truck drivers and police officers, public employees and teachers, firefighters and nurses and many others.What makes us different?  We’re organized.  Together we have a strong voice and build a better future for ourselves and our families.

  • We have legally binding contracts with our employers.
  • We decide together what will be in our contracts – and we win better wages, benefits and working conditions.
  • We win respect and dignity on the job.
