Director: John A. Murphy
The Freight Division represents the interests of truckers across North America. Hundreds of locals and tens of thousands of Teamsters are part of the division, which represents truck drivers, dockworkers, mechanics, office personnel and many others. Every day, the Freight Division coordinates grievance panels, changes of operations, organizing and negotiations of individual contracts. They also negotiate the National Master Freight Agreement, a monumental contract first signed in 1964 that provides solid, standardized protection and benefits to Teamsters in the Freight Division.
