For the work assignment system to provide equal opportunity for all applicants, complete cooperation and strict adherence to these established rules must be adhered to by all concerned.


If you are unemployed and desire to register for work, you must do so by completing an application for the out of work books by personal appearance at the South Charleston or Fairmont Union Office, completing an application on-line via the website or by facsimile to (304) 744-5649 {So. Chas.} or (304)  366-2289 {Fairmont}.  Office hours for the South Charleston office are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and for the Fairmont office Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  You are required to give complete information as to your qualifications and other pertinent information as required on the out-of-work application.


RULE #1:        It is essential that you fill out the application completely, answering all questions, as you will be called to work according to the qualifications that you have provided, provided you are next on the list in your respective group.


RULE #2:        When you have accepted an assignment and are worked fifteen (15) days or more, you will not be called again until you report and re-register at the Union office that you are again available, at which time, your name will be placed on the out-of-work list in your respective group.


NOTE:                    Anyone who accepts an assignment and voluntarily quits prior to working fifteen (15 days) shall be required to
re-register, at which time your name will be placed on the out-of-work list in your respective group.


RULE #3:        If you refuse an assignment, you will be placed on the bottom of your respective group.  If you refuse a second assignment, you will be removed from the out-of-work list until such time as you re-register.


RULE #4:        In the event you cannot be reached by telephone, you will remain on the list.  In the event you cannot be reached by phone a second time, you will be placed at the bottom of the list of your respective group.  In the event that you cannot be reached by phone a third time, you will be notified by mail that your name has been removed from the out-of-work list.


RULE #5:        At times, requests are made by an Employer for emergency help.  In this event, if the contact point is such a distance you could not fulfill the request, you will be by-passed but will hold your place on the list in your respective group.


RULE #6:        In order for you to be eligible for work assignment, you must have a telephone number where can be reached.

Your application will remain in effect for a period of six (6) months.  If you desire to remain on the out-of-work list for a period longer than six (6) months, you must re-register.  In order to retain your place on the out-of-work list, you must re-register prior to the six (6) months expiring.


In the event any job applicant is aggrieved, (1) with their failure to qualify for registration or (2) with their group classification or (3) with their order of referral, they must within ten (10) days file with the person in charge of Registration and Referral Office, a written statement of the specific complain setting forth the violation charged.  A committee consisting of an employer representative, a union representative and a Union Chairman, shall consider the grievance and render a decision which shall be final and binding.  The Committee is authorized to issue procedural rules for conduct of its business and it is not authorized to add to, subtract from, or modify any of the provisions of this system and its decision shall be in accord with the system and which decision shall be final and binding on all parties.

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.

    Ballots were mailed on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.  Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting.  Voting will close on Monday, July 10, and will be counted the same day. 

  • 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!

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • Teamsters are been standing together to protect good jobs at Sysco and US Foods. Our solidarity on many fronts helped to defeat the mega-merger of the two companies, which would have put thousands of jobs at risk. But challenges remain as both companies refine their plans. Join our campaign to ensure these foodservice giants honor their agreements with 11,500 Teamsters and help us bring more Sysco and US Foods workers into the Teamster family. LIKE our Facebook page, here.
