    GET INVOLVED!

    One of the most important things you can do to get involved and help the Teamsters movement is to stay connected with your fellow members and stewards. A few simple tasks will help you be more involved with your fellow members and contribute your voice to YOUR Teamsters.

    Attend general membership meetings which are typically held on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM at the Teamster Hall at 437 Kuhlman Drive in the Heights.

    In addition, we suggest participating in one or more of the following activities:

    • Participate in local union events and activities
    • Join a local union committee
    • Maintain regular contact with members, retirees, business agents and officers
    • Volunteer for our local annual Children’s Christmas Party

    Additional Activities for Stewards to stay connected:

    • Establish and maintain regular contact with the members you represent as a union steward.
    • Maintain regular contact with your fellow stewards, business officers and committee members.

    READ YOUR CONTRACT
    Ask your steward or business agent to explain parts that seem unclear.


    INSIST ON YOUR RIGHTS
    If you think management is acting unfairly, let your steward and co-workers know. The only way things can change is if you speak up and ask to be treated equally.


    SUPPORT YOUR CO-WORKERS
    If you know that someone else is being treated unfairly, help that person speak up and support them. Our union is strong because we stick together and stand up for one another.


    SUPPORT CAMPAIGNS TO WIN BETTER CONTRACTS
    Give your local union representative your ideas for what to negotiate in your contract. Join in activities to show management that you support your union. Help reach out to community groups when their support is needed.


    BACK OTHER WORKERS’ CAMPAIGNS FOR FAIR CONTRACTS
    When other union members win better contracts, it helps set higher standards that make it easier for your group to negotiate improvements. Other workers may ask you to help them by boycotting a certain product, displaying a bumper sticker, or attending a rally to demonstrate your support. Consider helping them get their voices heard loud and clear.

    Withdrawal Card Request

    If you have recently terminated your employment, are on unpaid sick leave or a leave of absence – or have been laid off – it is important to request a withdrawal card from Teamsters Local 190.

    A withdrawal card allows you to maintain your union membership on an inactive basis. In other words, if you are on “withdrawal status,” you will not owe union dues during the time you are not working but will remain in good standing with the union. In order to be eligible for a withdrawal card, your initiation fees must be paid in full and your union dues must be paid current.

    Failure to request a withdrawal card will make you responsible for all back dues and possibly a re-initiation fee if you start work again under a Teamster employer. Your request should be submitted before the end of the month in which you last worked.

    Please contact us as soon as possible so we can send you an official withdrawal card.

  • Who We Are

    Who Are The Teamsters?

    The Teamsters Union is North America's strongest and most diverse labor union. In 1903, the Teamsters started as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. These drivers were the backbone of America’s robust economic growth, but they needed to organize to wrest their fair share from greedy corporations. Today, the Union’s task is exactly the same. 

    The Teamsters are known as the champion of freight drivers and warehouse workers, but have organized workers in virtually every occupation imaginable, both professional and non-professional, private sector and public sector. 

    Our 1.4 million members are public defenders in Minnesota; vegetable workers in California; sanitation workers in New York; brewers in St. Louis; newspaper workers in Seattle; construction workers in Las Vegas; zoo keepers in Pennsylvania; healthcare workers in Rhode Island; bakery workers in Maine; airline pilots, secretaries and police officers. Name the occupation and chances are we represent those workers somewhere.

    Teamsters stand ready to organize workers who want to bargain collectively. Once a contract is negotiated and signed, the Union works to enforce it—holding management’s feet to the fire and invoking contract grievance procedures if management chooses not to. Wages and benefits under Teamster contracts are markedly better than those of non-union employees in similar jobs. Teamster contracts are the guarantors of decent wages, fair promotion, health coverage, job security, paid time-off and retirement income.

    The Teamsters Union also performs vital tasks in such areas as pension management, safety & health, community outreach, governmental affairs and communications. For more than a century, the Teamsters have been a public voice for the rights and aspirations of working men and women and a key player in securing them.
