  • This Web page provides the latest updates for the national contract, riders and supplements that cover about 3,500 Teamsters at DHL Express.

  • 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 page provides the latest contract information to the 7,500 Teamsters—drivers, dockworkers and office staff—employed by ABF Freight System, Inc.

  • 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 ‘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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Teamsters have stood in solidarity with worker struggles in other countries since our founding. With economic globalization, our ability to organize increasingly depends on our ability to build alliances with workers on a global scale.
    More than ever, Teamsters are organizing and bargaining with multi-national companies. A key objective of our Global Strategies Campaign is to build strong alliances with unions around the globe who organize and bargain with common employers. Our focus is on workers in the emerging global supply chains – the infrastructure of globalization.
    Globalization creates new opportunities for international worker solidarity. We seek common cause with workers around the world to build social justice for all workers and the communities in which they live.

  • The contributions of black members to the success of the Teamsters Union are numerous, varied and as old as the union itself. This month, the Teamsters Union spotlights some of those contributions.

Local 458M Saturday Meeting
Updated On: Sep 25, 2019

We would like to thank all of our Active and Retired Members that joined us at our Saturday, September 14th Membership Meeting.  We would also like to thank Goldberg, Weisman & Cairo attorney's that came out to discuss Worker's Compensation benefits and what your rights are. Our members had great questions regarding what injuries fall under Worker's Compensation all members were very happy for the information.  Vice President Reissenweber thanked them for their time and for sponsoring the coffee and bakery.

Vice President Reissenweber reported on the local and the different procedures that he has implemented to assist in ratifying contracts and verify membership. For the past 9 months as a Full Time Officer, Vice President Reissenweber has ratified 20 contracts that have been done to the best of his abilities for the members. He thanked the office staff because he believes it was a team effort in accomplishing these contracts. He reported that along with President Consolino they have been visiting the shops with membership listings to verify the members information i.e. phone numbers, addresses, and beneficiaries. Vice President Reissenweber believes that this has been very helpful to the local because we have found employees working at the shop that are not union members. He also stated it is important for all employees that should be union members become union members in a timely manner because it affects their benefits. While reading his report Vice President Reissenweber asked for assistance from the attending members for employee recommendations for entry level positions at many of our shops.  We have several shops looking for employee's unfortunately we have not been able to fill these positions with the current out of work members. If anyone is interested in applying for these positions, please contact Vice President Reissenweber at the local office.

President Consolino was not in attendance due to a previously scheduled event but he submitted a report that was read by Vice President Reissenweber.  One main point found in his report was the importance of supporting the Butch and Lewis Act and urged our members to contact their Representatives. President Consolino also reported on his work as an ILPF Trustee, and how he has been assisting in promoting this pension fund with other Teamster Locals.  He feels that all ILPF Trustee's should come out and assist the ILPF administrator in marketing this pension plan. (Please note ILPF is now known as the Teamster Members Retirement Plan)

Vice President Reissenweber was happy to present the following Union Membership Service Pins:

Rich Englund - 60 Years           Robert Ulrich - 60 Years               Charles Gricius - 50 Years   (1st Row)
