TEAMSTERS LOCAL UNION 229
INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF TEAMSTERS
GREETINGS FROM TEAMSTERS LOCAL 229
The Teamsters Union is made up of more than a million hard working men and women just like you. We are truck drivers, dockmen, nurses, warehouseman, police officers, food workers, airline employees and much more.
What have unions ever done for working people like us? Plenty!!! A lot of what we have today, things we take for granted, are the result of hard working TEAMSTERS.
Here are just a few of the things the TEAMSTERS UNION offer:
· A Strong International Union
· Strong Contracts
· The 40 Hour week
· Overtime pay
· Paid Vacations & Holidays
· Health Plans for You & Your Family
· Sick & Accident Benefits
· Pension Benefits
· A Strong Grievance Procedure
· Protection from Unjust Discharge
· Safety & Health Protections on the Job
Then there’s the stuff you can’t put a price on— DIGNITY, RESPECT, a say in what happens on the job, more opportunity for our families and so much more.
We encourage you to make an effort to learn more about YOUR Union. Get to know your Union Steward, locate the Union Bulletin Board; both are a source of help and the most current information. We invite you to stop by the Local Union Hall; plan to attend our Regular Monthly Membership Meetings.
Please remember, THIS GREAT UNION is a gift from the millions of hard working men and women who came before us … It is our duty and responsibility to preserve and protect it … IT is our obligation to pass it on to those who will come after us.
WELCOME TO THE TEAMSTERS LOCAL UNION 229!!!
