Teamster Officers Salary Report

Every year TDU publishes a nonpartisan report on the salaries of Teamster officials and lets members decide who is working hard to earn it—and who may not be. You can download the list here.

Teamsters can all agree we should pay union officers and staff fairly, and expect them to work hard for the members in return.

Members and leaders can judge for themselves who’s fighting for the members, and who’s not. Many of those listed in our report are hard-working, qualified leaders and professionals. Other may need to be replaced by fresh new leaders.  It’s up to the members to decide.

Check out the important story of how Teamster salaries have changed—and why.

If you want to see the LM-2 financial report for your local, click here, or contact the TDU office at 313-842-2600.  Questions are welcome.

Notes: This listing include all Teamster officials and staff professionals with a total 2019 salary over $150,000. It is compiled from LM-2 and LM-3 reports filed by locals, joint councils, conferences and the International union with the US Department of Labor. A few US locals with only public employee members do not file the reports; for those local unions we use Form 990 filed with the IRS. 

TDU publishes this report each year, usually in the fall. Because of Covid restrictions, we suspended the production of our newspaper, Teamster Voice, last year and thus publication of our salary listing was delayed a few months. Our normal schedule will return this year.
