Freight Drivers and the Teamsters: A Century of Progress


The Freight Division represents the interests of more than 75,000 Teamsters members from approximately 200 local unions, including Teamsters Local 26. Freight employees include truck drivers, dockworkers, mechanics, and office personnel. Truck drivers and related industry workers have long been the backbone of the Teamsters Union coast-to-coast — and particularly throughout the Midwest. Strong, reliable and committed Teamster drivers and freight workers will continue to be the face, heart and lifeblood of the most powerful union in the world, the Teamsters.
