Every Teamster has a legal right to a copy of their current collective bargaining agreement—no ifs, ands, or buts.
If the actual contract book is not yet printed, federal law requires that the local union provide a photocopy to any member who requests the contract.
These rights are protected by federal law: the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA). If you get put off when you ask for a copy, you should put your request in writing and mailed it certified mail.
If you still have trouble getting a copy of your contract, contact Teamsters for a Democratic Union at 313-842-2600 or click here to send us a message.
