A Message From the President

  As a new member, I am sure there are many questions you have about the Teamsters Union. Understanding your Union will be extremlely important in the years to come. I urge you to become a active member of Local No. 24 and get involved. Please browse the website to get familiar with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Local No. 24. Your degree of participation is totally up to you, from just paying your union dues, to attending the monthly membership meetings, or participating on the volunteer organizing committee.  It's your choice. There will always be room for you and we welcome new ideas. There are plenty of activities going on from attending Rallies on the War on Workers, Labor Day Parades or Phone Banking. Just ask, how can I help. 

  To become a member in good standing, you must take your oath of obligation. To accomplish this, attend our next Regular Meeting, or just schedule a time to come to the union office. I hope you will take an interest in your union and actively support your worksite Union Stewards. Working together, we can help insure equity on the job. The strength of Local No. 24 at your company is a direct reflections of the unity and participation of you, the members. If you have any questions, please let me know. The Union office is open from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The telephone number is (330) 434-8126.

   To the rest of my Brothers and Sisters of Local No. 24, as you already know, were standing on the shoulders of our retirees who came before us and now its our turn to build on that legacy. Our fight is different in alot of ways, but never forget, its still a fight and we can't win without you. If there is anything that your Union can do for you. We have one rule - just ask.

YRCW Successfully Refinances Debt

YRCW Worldwide, Inc. (YRCW) announced on February 13th that it has closed on the financing of a new $700 million term loan and a $450 million asset-based loan facility, which was the final piece to an improved capital structure.

“This is good news and with the refinancing completed all the components are in place to give the company time to turn around its operations,” said Tyson Johnson, Director of the Teamsters National Freight Division. 

“This was all possible because of our members’ willingness to make necessary sacrifices. The modifications and extension of the MOU facilitated a $300-million debt reduction announced on January 31, and now with this refinancing completed and announced on February 13, the company has extended maturities and more favorable terms that will allow it to put needed capital back into the business. We will redouble our efforts to ensure management puts the savings back into improving operations.”

  • Welcome to Teamster Organizing!

    You've heard it said that the best defense is a good offense. In the war on workers, Teamster Organizing is on the offensive! We're winning power for workers across industries and across North America. Join us!

  • Taxi drivers in Washington, D.C. are fed up!

    After years of unfair regulations and lack of respect, we are fighting back by forming the Washington, D.C. Taxi Operators Association. Our association will be backed by Teamsters Local 922 and the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

  • 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.

  • UPS Teamsters ratified the National Master UPS Agreement on June 26, 2013. The five-year contract includes increases in wages, health care and pension contributions and many other improvements. Several local Supplements and Riders did not pass, and the union is working through an internal, democratic process to resolve the issues. At UPS Freight, members overwhelmingly approved a new national five-year contract on Jan. 12, 2014. 

  • There are about 350 of us who work at EXAL in Youngstown, Ohio, where we manufacture aluminum bottles for large customers like Budweiser and Coca-Cola. We are uniting with Teamsters Local 377 to improve respect and working conditions at our company. Thank you for following our webpage. Fill in the “Join Our Fight” box below with your information to receive text message updates.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • This is a list of Teamster locals whose members are either on strike or locked out by the employer. We will update this list on a monthly basis.

     

  • In July 2011, the plan to restructure YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) aimed at saving more than 25,000 Teamster freight jobs was successfully completed. The restructuring has saved good Teamster freight jobs. This page is dedicated to providing our YRCW members updates about developments that affect them.

  • Teamsters at Republic Services/Allied Waste have stood together in recent years to fight for strong contracts, including going on strike and supporting their fellow striking workers. Workers continue to fight for strong contracts that include retirement security at the second largest solid waste company. This campaign page is dedicated to those ongoing efforts.
