Teamsters Local 320’s mission is to provide the benefit of unionism to all workers, and to protect and preserve the benefits obtained for members of this organization. We shall safeguard, advance, and promote the principles of free collective bargaining, citizen organizing, workers’ rights, and the security and welfare of all people through political action, education, and other community activities. Together we will defend public employees against any and all attacks!
For more than a century, the Teamsters Union has helped millions of workers achieve the American Dream. Our success is a testament to those who came before us, who stood together to form a union and a labor movement. These workers fought for the rights and privileges that today most Americans take for granted. Without the solidarity of unions, there would be no weekends, no pensions and no health insurance.
The best way to celebrate Teamster History is to highlight the actions and events that improved working and living standards for American families and communities.
Learning about the struggles and victories of the past will help union leaders, members and nonmembers alike appreciate the contributions Teamsters made not only to labor history but to American history.
