Teamsters Union Washington

 General Workers Unions

The Teamsters Union was originally founded to help truck drivers and warehouse workers fight for better wages from the corporations that employed them, often at less than a fair wage. Since that time, the Teamsters has grown.

While they continue to help workers in these occupations, they also now have unions in nearly every occupation, including sanitation workers, brewery workers, construction workers, and more.

Chances are, you know someone who is a member of a Teamsters Union. The Teamsters has been fighting for the right of workers to have a fair wage and to have better working conditions for more than a century.

The Teamsters help workers organize to get a fair contract, and then enforce it with the company when they fail to uphold their end of the bargain. Workers who are in unions have markedly better contracts, with better wages and working conditions, than those workers who are not members of unions that are employed in similar jobs. According to their website, "Teamster contracts are the guarantors of decent wages, fair promotion, health coverage, job security, paid time-off and retirement income."

"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."
