Did you know that the Teamsters represent more than 15,000 Costco workers? These workers have had a say in the terms and conditions
of their employment for more than 20 years!
Recently, more than 3,000 Costco workers in 16 locations in New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia voted to retain their union membership by an overwhelming 77.5% margin!
This site will keep you up to date on the Teamsters' Costco-related activities and organizing efforts.
Welcome from the Director of the Teamsters Costco Unity Committee
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Welcome to the Teamsters Costco website!
The Teamsters Union represents more than 15,000 Costco workers at 55 locations in California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia. Costco has more than 300 locations, with about 93,000 employees.
This site contains an archive of previous stories and newsletters about the Costco contract campaigns in California and on the East Coast. It is where you will find the latest information about the union's efforts to keep Costco workers the highest paid workers in the retail industry, with the best benefits.
In addition, this site is aimed at giving those of you who wish to get involved in organizing and representing Costco locations rudimentary insight into Costco "culture" as well as some history, background and a suggested approach to contacting Costco workers in your area.
Nearly every state has at least one Costco. Every time a new warehouse opens, I usually get a call from a local union organizer interested in representing these workers.
Please email me if your local is involved in any organizing at Costco. It is so important to be coordinated and provide any assistance necessary to win.
