Respect is a Teamster Contract

Teamsters have a voice on the job—and much more.

The Teamsters are working men and women just like you — 1.4 million of us across the United States and Canada. We are school bus drivers, police officers, public employees, clerical workers, zookeepers, aircraft mechanics, firefighters, health care workers, and more.

What makes us different?

  • We have legally binding contracts with our employers.
  • We decide together what will be in our contracts — and we win better wages, benefits and working conditions.
  • We win respect and dignity on the job.
