COVID-19 Update: Assistance for Teamster Privilege Participants

In addition to job protection, benefits and wages provided for in Teamster Contracts, the International Union provides additional services offered at a discounted cost to the membership. Because of the strength and size of our membership, the International is able to negotiate these lower costs for services ranging from legal to medical to financial. We are always on the lookout for ways to save our Teamster families money and increase their prosperity.


  • The Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) guarantees certain rights to union members and imposes certain responsibilities on union officers to ensure union democracy, financial integrity and transparency. The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) is the Federal agency with primary authority to enforce many LMRDA provisions, while other provisions, such as the bill of rights, may only be enforced by union members through private suit in federal court.

  • The IBT is proud to endorse Teamster Privilege – a package that offers benefits and services for hardworking union members and their families. In addition to the benefits of a strong voice and representation on the job, you and your family have the right to enjoy these benefits because of the strength of our membership. As long as you are a Teamster member, you are eligible for deals on products and services that are not available to the general public.

    The Teamster Privilege benefits extend above what is negotiated with your employer under your Teamster contract. Learn more about each and take advantage of all that work best for you and your family.
