Secretary-Treasurer & CEO
Forming a union at your workplace gives you and your coworkers the power to stand up for your families, your futures and yourselves. Through a legal, binding contract it gives you a strong, collective voice with which to demand decent working conditions, seniority, paid vacations, pensions and/or PERS, fair pay and health and welfare.
That's what the Teamsters are all about: decent working conditions, better pay, strong benefits and dignity and respect on the job. The Teamsters can help you explain the benefits of union membership to your fellow employees, and assist in planning an organizing drive.
Teamsters contracts are the best in the labor movement. We have earned our reputation for bargaining smart and demanding the best protections and wages.
Ratification meeting is being held on Tuesday, July 29th for City of Henderson Teamster Members (only).
The meeting is being held held at City Council Chambers, City Hall
7:30 am to 5:30 pm
The Teamsters Union today called for a renewed commitment by Congress to protect the driving public by keeping current hours of service rules in place to help prevent tragedies that are the result of driver fatigue.
More than 600,000 of our 1.4 million Teamsters members turn a key to a truck for a living. A tired driver is a dangerous driver.
More than 4,000 lives are claimed each year on our highways in accidents involving trailer trucks. It is not uncommon for drivers to feel pressured by their employers to drive well beyond 60-70 hours a week. When drivers ignore the 34 hour restart provision in the current hours of service regulations-either by choice or design, accidents occur.
Congress must protect the peoples it serves by mandating and keeping the current hours of service rules and ensuring companies don’t force drivers to break the law.
Our general membership meetings have closed for the summer months of June-July and August and will resume Sept. 8th at 7:00 pm. Have a pleasant and safe summer.

Greetings CNLV/Teamsters Member:
The North Las Vegas City Council unanimously approved the Teamsters agreement at last night's council meeting. Prior to voting on the item, Mayor John Lee as well as other council members offered praise and appreciation to Larry Griffith and the Teamsters for stepping up and helping the City during these difficult times. Larry Griffith also expressed gratitude and appreciation to the Mayor and City Council for their support, and he personally thanked interim City Manager Jeff Buchanan, Deputy City Manager Qiong Liu, and City Attorney Sandra Douglass Morgan for their hard work in reaching the agreement between the Teamsters and the City.
Once all discussion on the item had concluded, the City Council cast their votes for the item. There were quite a number of Teamsters members in the audience waiting to see the results of the council vote display on the overhead screens.
The council vote was displayed: UNANIMOUS APPROVAL!!!!
The Teamsters all stood and applauded the City Council action, and the City Council, along with the City Manager, Deputy City Manager, City Attorney, and the rest of staff all stood and applauded the Teamsters. The applause continued for a while as the room was filled with energy and excitement.
We have come a long way to reach this point. We are very fortunate to have the leadership at Teamsters Local 14 under Larry Griffith, Secretary-Treasurer/Principal Officer, Al Ghilarducci, President and CNLV Business Agent, and the incredible staff at the Union that work tirelessly to ensure we continue to have opportunities now and in the future.
We are also very fortunate to have the leadership team at the City under interim City Manager Jeff Buchanan, Deputy City Manager Qiong Liu, and City Attorney Sandra Douglass Morgan. We also are grateful for the friendship and leadership of Mayor John Lee, Mayor Pro Tem Anita Wood, Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown, Councilman Wade Wagner, and Councilman Isaac Barron.
We are all in this together. The relationships we have formed and continue to develop within the City are very important to our collective interests and future. The partnership between the Teamsters and the City is proving to be a tremendous benefit for all involved.
The leadership at Teamsters Local 14 wants you to know how very important you are and how much you are valued as a Teamsters member.
We now look to the future with renewed optimism.
