Questions: Did your Employer tell you, without any justification, that your performance just hasn't been up to Company expectations and the raise you were expecting for the new year is now under reconsideration?

Do you feel that "friends" of the Supervisors seem to get the good jobs and better wages even though you have much more experience and training, not to mention that you have been with the Company many years longer than they have been employed there?

Did the Employer just decide to change your benefit package, i.e. reduce your vacation schedule, take away holiday(s) or make you pay for health and welfare benefits, without any notice or opportunity for you to have any input in the decision?

Do the rules in that Employee Handbook seem to change without any reason or explanation?

Answer: If you are tired of being that "at will" employee who has no recourse to any changes in the workplace, except for being reminded that "if you don't like it, feel free to look for employment elsewhere", or "if you don't like it, there is the door", then you need to check out your options with a Local Union. A Collective Bargaining Agreement contains wages, benefits and working conditions, negotiated by "you" the employees and your Union Representative, with the Employer, and cannot be changed or taken away for the term of the Agreement without mutual agreement. This means that if your Employer wants to change or take away negotiated compensation or benefits, the Employer must negotiate such changes with you and your Union Representative. This also means that you have the legal right, process and representation to challenge any unjust economic or disciplinary action against you, by the Employer, through legal "due process" with the grievance and arbitration provision negotiated in your Labor Agreement.

If you would like to find out more about your rights and protection on the job with Union representation, please give us a call and speak to one of our Local Union Representatives. Your Employer has legal representation, so should you. We, at Teamsters Union Local 364, currently have over 70 Collective Bargaining Agreements and represent over 3500 Teamster Members in St. Joseph, Marshall, Elkhart, Lagrange, Kosciusko and Fulton Counties in Indiana.

Your call will be confidential and there are no obligations.

  • 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.
