CONTRACT UPDATE: Teamsters, FirstGroup Reach Tentative Agreement


The Teamsters Union and FirstGroup reached a tentative contract agreement, Rick Middleton, Co-Chairman of the Teamsters First Student Negotiating Committee, announced today.  This agreement was not easy to reach and it took strength and solidarity both at the table and in the yards.
The specifics of the contract will be presented to members once local union representatives meet on June 30 to decide whether to endorse the tentative agreement. Once endorsed, the union will notify members and local meetings will be held to answer any questions before ballots are sent to members’ homes.
More details, including a schedule of the next steps, will be released soon. In the meantime, the union has set up a web page for you to get the latest information. Please visit for regular updates, or text FIRST to 86466 to join the Teamsters First Student Network so you can receive instant updates by text. Please note that standard message rates from your carrier may apply.
On behalf of your Teamsters First Student Negotiating Committee, we hope you enjoy the summer break. Once the tentative agreement is endorsed, we encourage members to educate themselves on the new agreement and, more importantly, vote!
