Proposals exchanged; negotiations scheduled for this week
May 2, 2022 In the lead-up to negotiations, the union launched a member-driven campaign to listen to the concerns of carhaulers throughout the country. Earlier this month, the Teamsters Carhaul Division put out a bargaining survey for members to provide feedback on the issues that mattered most in the new contract. Avril Thompson, Freight Division Director, and Fred Zuckerman, Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer, both said that the Teamsters are committed to negotiating a national contract that raises standards and improves driver retention throughout the carhaul industry. Negotiations are scheduled to take place on May 4 and 5, in Romulus, Mich. Read the contract update here.
