As the strongest and most democratic labor union in the world, the Teamsters Union has been a leader in setting the standard for higher wages, better benefits and improved working conditions for workers throughout the Country for over 100 years.

We are strong because of our members continuous support and participation. As a member of Local 170, you can make your union even stronger than it is today by sticking together and educating potential members. Supporting your union and being united is the key to our success. Showing your support can be done in a number of ways such as attending monthly union meetings, participating in union elections, getting to know your Stewards and Officers, joining one of our many volunteer committees like our Blood Bank, Scholarship Fund, Strike Force, Parade and Women's Committees. By spreading the word about the many benefits of being a Teamster helps to unite us all. Remember, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.
