We support them in the workplace and on the legislative and political fronts to ensure their best interests are represented.

Did You Know?
Since 1910, the Teamster logo has consisted of
two horses' heads, representing the
complementary forces of strength inherent in
the Teamster organization. A well-known
emblem, most people recognize it but are
unsure of the story behind it. The horses' names
are Thunder and Lightning; Thunder is male
and Lightning is female.
Members = Power
Local 570 members and their representatives
negotiate wages, benefits, and job security,
resolve grievances and secure health and
safety protections during a pandemic
because, as a union, they have a seat at the
table with their employers.
