The global labor movement has established Global Union Federations that unite unions globally by sector of the economy. The Teamsters are members of six Global Union Federations.
- Building and Woodworkers International (BWI)
- International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)
- International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF)
- Public Services International (PSI)
- UNI Global Union
These federations convene regional and global alliances and networks of unions within many Teamster employers. The Teamsters participate in global networks for unions representing workers at UPS, DHL, Coca-Cola, Pepsico, ABInBev, SABMiller, National Express, St. Gobain, Holcim and many others.
