A labor contract defines the rights and the responsibilities of both labor and management, and the remedies provided to each in the event that one party fails to live up to the obligations stated within the contract.

All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue, and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter.

Edmund Burke

Since 1910, the Teamsters logo has consisted of two horses’ heads, representing the complimentary forces of strength that are inherent in the Teamsters organization. A well-known emblem, most people recognize it but are unsure of the story behind it. The horses’ names are Thunder and Lightning, Thunder is male, Lightning female. Together, they symbolically represent the pillars of the Teamsters organization: quality and power, dignity and justice, strength and morality. The Teamsters are built on pillars that allow us to ensure that our Members’ needs are taken care of, that workers have access to their rights, and that our organization has the staying power to persist through the years.
1944 Natural gas explosions rock Cleveland. Two liquid gas tanks explode in Cleveland, Ohio, killing 130 people, on this day in 1944. It took all of the city’s firefighters to bring the resulting industrial fire under control.

I Pledge Allegiance  I (me) Promise to be faithful and true (Promise my loyalty) 

to the flag  to the emblem that stands for and represents

of the United States  all 50 states, each of them individual, and individually represented on the flag

of America  yet formed into a UNION of one Nation. 

and to the Republic  And I also pledge my loyalty to the Government that is itself a Republic, a form of government where the PEOPLE are sovereign, 

for which it stands,  this government also being represented by the Flag to which I promise loyalty

one Nation under God, These 50 individual states are united as a single Republic under the Divine
providence of God, "our most powerful resource" (according to the words of President Eisenhower) 

Indivisible, and can not be separated. (This part of the original version of the pledge was written just 30 years after the beginning of the Civil War and demonstrates the unity sought in the years after that divisive period in our history) 

with Liberty The people of this Nation being afforded the freedom to pursue "life, liberty, and happiness", 

and Justice  And each person entitled to be treated justly, fairly, and according to proper law and principle, 

for All.  And these principles afforded to EVERY AMERICAN, regardless of race, religion, color, creed, or any other criteria. Just as the flag represents 50 individual states that can not be divided or separated, this Nation represents millions of people who can not be separated or divided.

Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan writes to PATCO President Robert Poli with this promise: if the union endorses Reagan, "I will take whatever steps are necessary to provide our air traffic controllers with the most modern equipment available and to adjust staff levels and work days so that they are commensurate with achieving a maximum degree of public safety." He got the endorsement. Nine months after the election, he fires the air traffic controllers for engaging in an illegal walkout over staffing levels and working conditions - 1980

Mark Torres, a Teamster attorney for Local 810 in New York, has written a children’s book called “Good Guy Jake.”

The book, illustrated by Yana Murashko and translated by Madelin Arroyo, is about a sanitation worker, Jake, who repairs broken toys he pulls from the trash on his rounds and donates to a local shelter. When an angry motorist turns Jake in, he is fired and his union comes to his aid.

It’s a union book through and through, right down to its dedication, which reads: “This book is inspired by and dedicated to all the past, present and future hard working brothers and sisters of the Labor movement, along with the union representatives and service professionals who have dedicated their careers to the assistance and betterment of the working class. Union strong!”......

The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and social reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, government relief for the destitute and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life. The captains of industry did not lead this transformation; they resisted it until they were overcome. When in the thirties the wave of union organization crested over the nation, it carried to secure shores not only itself but the whole society.
