North America's Strongest Union

The Real Story of the 20th Century

The working men and women of North America played a crucial role in many of the great changes occurring over the last 100 years in industrialization, transportation and social justice. Their struggles and triumphs shaped the economic, class and social trends more than any other group. The rise of North America’s working families into the middle class, the empowerment of workers through collective bargaining and on-the-job protections of health, safety and retirement security lead to the establishment of a powerful voice for workers and dignity in the workplace.

These remarkable gains took place in the short historical space of 100 years due in large part to the courage and determined efforts of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The strong-willed members of this great union made the 20th century the Teamster Century.
