T.A. Stowers, Founding Convention Delegate
Updated On: Feb 05, 2024

During Black History Month, we remember the Black Teamsters who were part of the original conventions forming the Team Drivers International Union in 1898 and its spin-off, The National Teamsters Union, in 1902.

T.A. Stowers, a Black delegate from Chicago was a leading voice at the 1903 convention to create the Teamsters Union and helped write our Constitution.

Stowers was the force behind adopting a creed vastly different from other unions, allowing members of any race, creed, gender or religion into the Teamsters.  ~Via Teamsters on X
