    • 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.

  • Working with the web site modules
    Posted On: Oct 17, 2013
    The UnionActive system is made up of individual Modules that can be added, removed, and customized throughout the site.
     
    To view the current Modules, login to the site as an admin and you will now see gray boxes around each individual module. Each module box contains an x button, up and down arrows, the module order number, and the title of the module.
     
    Clicking the x button in a module will remove that module from the current layout. The arrow buttons will move the module up or down in the column.
    Each column has an Edit Column box at the bottom if it for individual control of each column. The left column and right column edit boxes also contain color selections for customizing the background color of each column.
     
    To add a module to the layout, select the desired module from the drop down selection field at the bottom of the column, enter the order for the module in the number field, and click the Add Module button.
     
    The right hand column can be customized for each page of the website. For example you can have different modules display in the right column, depending on which page of the web site the user is viewing.
     
    The left column will stay the same for every page, and the center column is only customizable on the home page. To customize the right column for a page, go to that page in the web site, and click the Use Custom Column link at the bottom of the right column.
     
    Creating a Custom Module: You can create your own modules and use them to insert your own content. For example, if you want to place an image banner into the right column, you can create a custom module that contains the image banner and link.
     
    To create a custom module, click the Add Custom Box link at the bottom of the column that you want to add the custom module to. You will be taken to a form to create the module. On the form, first give the module a simple title, like imagebanner1 (don’t use spaces in the name of the module). Then, using the built-in HTML editor, create the content for the module. In this example you would insert the image banner into the editor, then click the add module button to save it.
     
    The module will now be active at the bottom of the column it was added to, and it will be available as a selection in the add module drop down selection fields in each column.
