The Women’s Caucus shares information relevant to the struggles of Teamster Women on the job and in our union, and offers a network for Teamster women to share strategies on overcoming obstacles. We bring together reform-minded Teamster Women from across the country and every Teamster industry. We work to empower Teamster Women to organize for justice in the Teamsters and take leadership in the reform movement.
