There will be a Volunteer Organizer training workshop held on Saturday, May 13th in Manhattan. This is a free, all-day event and lunch is included. If you are interested in attending this training, see your Business Agent for details.


In another landslide organizing victory, Vendlink/Canteen Services voted 32 to 7 to join Teamsters Local 805, bringing our organizing total for the year to over 100 new members. Our newest members are very enthusiastic about negotiating their first written contract, and especially on improving wages, healthcare and retirement benefits. Local 805 was alerted to the


Vendlink employees’ interest in joining a union by an ex-805 member. The company is located near HLA in Farmingdale, Long Island and services vending machines in the greater New York area. We look forward to seeing them at the next General Meeting!


Local 805 volunteer organizers are conducting an organizing drive on Stan Lou Tobacco, a distribution warehouse in Yonkers. Most cigarette and candy distribution warehouses in the NY area are already members of Teamsters Local 805. Organizing the non-union businesses in the same industry ensures a level playing field in that industry and a strong union voice.


Teamsters Local 805 is dedicated to pro-union, pro-worker activism, nationally and in our own communities. We encourage you to follow the links below and learn about the issues that directly affect working men and women like yourselves.
