  • This Web page provides the latest updates for the national contract, riders and supplements that cover about 3,500 Teamsters at DHL Express.

  • We Are eXPOsing XPO’s Global Greed

    XPO Logistics is a top ten global logistics and transportation company with annual revenue of $15 billion and 89,000 employees, another 10,000 workers classified as independent contractors, and thousands more working for firms that subcontract with XPO. We are the REAL workers at XPO Logistics worldwide exposing the truth about the company’s global greed, illegal wage theft, unsafe conditions, and abhorrent and vicious anti-worker, anti-union tactics. 

    This greed includes mistreating former Con-way Freight workers in the United States who are being kept in the dark about terminal closures and layoffs, and the company’s illegal refusal to bargain contracts and denying their workers’ federally protected right to organize. It also includes port, rail and last-mile drivers around the country and in Southern California fighting wage theft in excess of $200 million because they are misclassified as independent contractors and denied the right to form their union. This greed has caused numerous lawsuits and strikes.  Greed also means an unsafe workplace and mistreating its warehouse employees.

    XPO’s greed extends to Europe beginning with breaking its promise to not layoff any workers for at least 18 months. French workers and the unions have been fighting back against XPO’s disrespect, lies and attempts to slash jobs. Similar struggles are taking place in Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and across Europe.

    Join the worldwide struggle now! Get involved with this campaign by joining the Facebook group “XPO Exposed.”

    Together, we can eXPOse the company’s global greed and win fairness, respect and dignity for tens of thousands of XPO employees around the world!

  • This page provides the latest contract information to the 7,500 Teamsters—drivers, dockworkers and office staff—employed by ABF Freight System, Inc.

  • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

  • The ‘Let’s Get America Working!’ campaign seeks to restore a dynamic and prosperous middle class to drive economic growth by helping to advance policy decisions that create and maintain good middle-income jobs, guarantee retirement security, expand access to the American Dream, and ensure that the benefits of the ongoing economic recovery are felt by the many, not just the few.

  • This webpage provides information on the Teamsters Union’s legislative advocacy at both the federal and state level as well as our field activity to support those policy positions and to get strong labor candidates elected to office.  Among other resources, you will find our federal legislative scorecard, formal statements of policy position and communications to Capitol Hill,  a weekly update on federal legislative happenings, an overview of bills we are tracking at the state level, and quick links to take action on priority issues.

  • This web page provides information on the ongoing effort to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Since 1994, NAFTA has devastated working families, putting corporate profits ahead of people.  What’s worse is that NAFTA has become the blueprint for all other trade agreements, from the way that it was negotiated in secret, to the bad provisions that have made their way into every agreement that has been signed since then.  Now, NAFTA is being renegotiated and we demand that it be reframed to work for workers instead of corporate interests.

  • 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.

  • The contributions of black members to the success of the Teamsters Union are numerous, varied and as old as the union itself. This month, the Teamsters Union spotlights some of those contributions.

Philadelphia's 'black market' for sugary drinks

RACHEL THOMAS Last updated 00:01, March 15 2018

A crate of Pepsi is wedged up against an arm rest between the front seat and the back.

Underneath is a box of Mountain Dew, then more Pepsi shoved underneath a seat.

This, claims union man Danny Grace, is evidence of Philadelphia's black market for sugary beverages.

Unregistered drivers are reportedly selling soda for cash in Philadelphia to get around the beverage tax.DANNY GRACE/SUPPLIED

Unregistered drivers are reportedly selling soda for cash in Philadelphia to get around the beverage tax.

Grace is secretary-treasurer of the Teamsters – many of whom drive for Coke and Pepsi – and his members send him these photos when they spot the vans around the city.

A sandwich and a soda is an institution in Philadelphia, much like the famed Philly cheese steak, "but now the soda costs more than the sandwich".

He produces more photos – white vans, number plates, crates of Coke bottles, an orange drink called Sunkist, and a man in a white shirt with a piece of paper in his hand, standing next to crates of Coke and Red Bull.

Unregistered drivers are taking white vans to untaxed suppliers – such as Walmart – outside the city and buying in bulk, then selling the products to retailers in the city for cash, Grace says.

Union leader Danny Grace supplied photos of soft drinks jammed into vans for sale on a black market that dodges Philadelphia's sugar tax.

"They're going to distributors, to bars, they're going wherever they can and selling it. There's no tracing it at that point.

"We know they're coming outta Maryland. We know they're coming outta Virginia. We think they're coming outta New York."

That hurts his members even more because "our guys are losing that revenue also".

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney acknowledges the black market exists, but says the vast majority of affected taxpayers play by the rules. 

"However, we know that some may not be, and we built into our revenue projections a 10 per cent non-compliance rate.

"The fact that we raised $60 million over nine months makes clear that while black market activity exists, it is not widespread."

Crates of Sunkist drink sit in the back of a van.

Grace says he's sent these photos to the mayor's office and city hall, but claims they don't want to know.

Since the tax was implemented, Kenney's office won't return Grace's calls or reply to his letters, he says.

"This is really hard on our members, y'know?"

Kenney says he's "always happy to meet with labour leaders" and adds that funding has increased for Department of Revenue enforcement staff to ensure taxpayers are doing what they're supposed to.

Merchants who play by the rules display the amount of tax on a product on the receipt.

"Those who are not coming into compliance are receiving fines," Kenney says.

"Repeated non-compliance could result in the closure of the business."
