Ports in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico are the economic engines of regional economies employing hundreds of thousands of workers. Ninety-five percent of the goods imported to our countries flow through our ports. Teamsters are among the best-paid port workers. Our jobs include truck driving, warehousing, stevedoring, operating and repairing ferries and tugs, and building ships. Our division is also committed to organizing the unorganized. Owner-drivers hauling intermodal containers are the most exploited truck drivers. We will harness Teamster power to secure good union contracts for these brothers and sisters.
You can reach the Port Division, or Director Fred Potter, by calling (202) 624-6800, or by emailing Port@teamster.org
