    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.

  • Register To Vote!

    The National Voter Registration Form
    The National Mail Voter Registration Form allows you to register to vote from anywhere in the United States. Be sure to follow the General Instructions, as well as the specific instructions for your State, contained in the PDF download. Visit the Election Assistance Commission website for more information.

    Who Can Use the NVR Form
    If you are a U.S. citizen who lives or has an address within the United States, you can use this form to:

    • Register to vote in your State
    • Report a change of name to your voter registration office
    • Report a change of address to your voter registration office
    • Register with a political party
    • Not all states accept the NVR form printed on white paper, make sure to verify that your state will accept this form. State instructions are included at the end of the form.
    • Exceptions: North Dakota does not have voter registration; Wyoming, by State law, cannot accept the National Form; and New Hampshire town and city clerks will accept the National Form only as a request for their own mail-in absentee voter registration form.

    Please do not use this application if you live outside the United States and its territories and have no home (legal) address in this country, or if you are in the military stationed away from home. Use the Federal Postcard Application available to you from military bases, American embassies, or consular offices.

    Eligibility
    Each State has its own laws about who may register and vote.

    Note: All States require that you be a United States citizen by birth or naturalization to register to vote in federal and State elections. Federal law makes it illegal to falsely claim US citizenship to register to vote in any federal, State or local election. Also Note: You cannot be registered to vote in more than one place at a time.

    Where can I register to vote in my local town?
    Registration applications may be obtained from either the local election official in your county or city, or through registration outreach programs sponsored by such groups as the League of Women Voters. In addition, you can also register to vote when applying for a driver’s license or identity card at State DMV or driver's licensing offices, State offices providing public assistance, State offices providing State-funded programs for the disabled, and at armed forces recruitment offices.

    Many States also offer registration opportunities at public libraries, post offices, unemployment offices, and at public high schools and universities. Colleges, universities, and trade schools participating in federal student loan programs also offer voter registration applications to enrolled students prior to general elections.
