Teamsters History Project

The Teamsters History Project is looking for history, photos, or stories from the Local Union, as well as preparing a history book on ‘Teamster Participation During Major Conflicts’ to honour the sacrifice of thousands of Teamsters who served in the American and Canadian Armed Forces throughout history.


As part of this book, a list of all casualties incurred by Teamster members will be included. Much of this information has been drawn from The International Teamster Magazine. Unfortunately, not all battle fatalities were published in the Magazine, as not all Local Unions reported casualties to the International Union. In order to give credit to the many Teamster service-members who paid the price for freedom, the Project needs to acquire an accurate count of all casualties.


For further information, please contact Shelby Tamas 604-876-6464 or team464admin@telus.net


We greatly appreciate your assistance on this project. Thank you for your time and support.

- Dave S

"I was there when we brought the Union in. The first-time contract they won for us was unbelievable. It changed the quality of my life. I am now a Shop Steward and enjoy working with my Union and looking after my fellow workers. "

- Paul Landrecht - Shop Steward. Island Farms Dairy.

"I was a Shop Steward and was also on the contract negotiation team. The Union took the time and trouble to learn all about our industry and what we do. This means they are better able to fight for us whether it is on the job or at the bargaining table. We have the best contract in our industry. Thanks guys!"
