News from North Dakota

The Teamsters have been strongly representing members and their families in North Dakota for many years. During those years, we have continued to build and strengthen the contracts. We strive to provide you with the best support and are always fighting for your rights, benefits, job security, safe work environments, income growth and more. We’re here for you, stay safe and stay healthy and always remember that the Teamsters have your back.

These are a few of the issues on Teamsters minds across the state of ND. The Teamster National Pipeline Division was busy hiring this spring and holding training courses across the tri-state region for new Teamsters and we would like to welcome them all to our state.

In contract news, The Dean Foods contract was overwhelming ratified by its members in the Central and Western part of the state. The negotiating committee secured gains in wages, retirement and vacation, while keeping the health insurance costs very low for the members. Contracts that will be coming up in 2017 will be Bimbo Bakeries, Super Value: warehouse/drivers and office, and State Wide Construction Agreement, so we will be gearing up for those.

In additional to those companies, we also represent:
– Super Value
– Dean Foods
– Cass Clay/Kemps
– Bimbo Bakeries
– Pan O Gold
– Fargo Glass and Paint
– Northern Improvement
– Minot Paving
– Penhall
– YRC Freight

I would also like to send well wishes to all the members that retired this year.

In Solidarity,

Jeff Diede and Shane Block
