In order for an applicant  to be eligible to register on the out of work list the applicant must fill out an application for referral, listing all qualifications including the number of years worked in the industry and all equipment that the applicant is qualified to drive.

In order to be eligible for referral the applicant must be qualified to perform the work, willing to work and accept referrals pursuant to these rules and be current in any applicable referral hall fees or if a member of the Union, current in their dues.   In addition, in order for an applicant to be eligible for referral, their applications must show that their credentials, including but not limited to: Certifications, DOT Physical, CDL’s, LEAD Drug Cards, TWIC, OSHA, Safety Training, etc., are current.  It is each applicant’s responsibility to provide this information to the Local Union office on a timely basis and to ensure that their respective applications are updated to reflect their current status.

 Applications to be placed on the referral list will be accepted on an as needed basis, with the Executive Board determining when it is necessary to take any additional applications.

An Application for referral will remain on file for (6) months at which time, it is subject to being renewed if the applicant has not been referred to or accepted work through the referral hall.  

               Referrals shall be made in chronological order of the applicant’s place on the out of work list, so long as the applicant is qualified to perform the work that he or she is being referred for.   This referral procedure will be followed except in cases where the employer may request employees by name who are on layoff status and who are registered on the out of work list to be referred for employment without regard to their position on the list and in cases where the employer requests special skills, abilities and/or requests to employ minority and/or female referrals in order to meet workforce participation goals of the employer or in accordance with an affirmative action plan, in which case the Union shall refer the first applicant on the out of work list, possessing such special skills, abilities and/or minority and/or female referral.

1.  You will be called for work according the qualifications furnished by you, provided you are next on the list with the necessary qualifications.

2.  When you have accepted an assignment and have actually been employed on the job one (1) or more days, you will not be called again until you report and re-register at the Local Union Hall that you are again available for referral.   In order to re-register you must provide a layoff slip from your previous employer.  At this time you will be re-entered on the out of work list and placed at the bottom of the list.

5.  At times, requests are made by employers for emergency help.  In this event, if the job location is such a distance that you could not reasonably fill the request within one hour from the call from the Union, then you will be passed-by but you will hold your place on the out of work list.

6.  In order for you to be eligible for work assignments you must be able and available for work, and you must also have two telephone numbers where you can be reached.  It is your responsibility to provide the Union with your current telephone numbers.  ONLY TWO NUMBERS WILL BE USED FOR REFERRALS.

7.  If you are registered on the out-of-work list for referral and it is determined by the Local Union that you are working without having been referred by the Union or having been cleared by the Union to work within the jurisdiction of the Huntington books, then your name will be removed from the out of work list and you will not appear on the list again until such time as you re-apply and the Executive Board approves the application.   

8.  Any applicant upon being referred in regular order who refuses to accept three (3) referrals, such applicant’s name shall be placed at the bottom of the out of work list.

9.   Any applicant who is on the out of work list and upon being referred in regular order is sick and refuses to accept the referral, then such referral shall be regarded as not physically able to work and such referral’s name shall be removed from the list until such time as the referral can show that they are physically able to work.  Then they may re-register, and their name will be returned to its place on the list from where it was removed.

     For example:  If your name is at place ten (10) when you are reporting off sick, you will be returned to number ten (10) on the out of work the list when re-registering on the out of work list.

Current Campaigns
  • The IBT and your Atlanta Committee members, Geoff Maloney and Chris Rogers have been negotiating with Company management since 2010; almost as long as the IBT have been negotiating for the Express Jet CRJ members. 

    The Company has now given us their final, closeout proposal on wages. Neither the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Airline Division, the Business Agents of Local 210 and Local 19, nor your rank-and-file committee members are recommending this be ratified. A detailed letter from your ExpressJet CRJ Negotiating Committee can be found here. A copy of the company’s last, best and final offer can be found here.

    As soon as we have firm open and close voting dates we will advise you.  Please continue to check this page for more information, it will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) recently concluded and a tentative agreement has been reached. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to endorse the National Agreement and the Central-Southern Supplement, paving the way for members to vote. The Eastern and Western Supplements were approved in 2016, and will not be re-voted. However, all carhaul members will get to exercise their right to vote on the National Agreement and General Monetary Changes.

    Ballots will be mailed out on or about March 10 and are tentatively scheduled to be counted on March 30.

    The tentative agreement is from September 1, 2015, until May 31, 2021.

  • 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!

  • On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Southwest Airlines reached an agreement covering more than 300 material specialists. Details of the agreement are available on this webpage, along with materials explaining the components of this contract.

    Electronic voting will commence via Ballot Point beginning on or about May 24, 2017. Ballots will be mailed on or about Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting via mail, along with paper copies of the tentative agreement’s highlights, the tentative agreement, and a copy of the seniority list. Voting will close on or about June 14 and ballots will be counted on June 21.  Please continue to check this page for more information, it will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

  • The Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

  • 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.

  • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

    There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

    The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

    But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.
