Teamsters Local 962
  • Proud to be a Teamster

    Teamsters Local 962 is a democratic trade union established in 1938 in Medford, Oregon, some of the first Teamsters were milk drivers from Lost River Dairy who joined together for better hours and working conditions. Those early Teamsters and the labor movement as a whole fought the early battles for the 8-hour workday, the weekend, overtime compensation and workplace safety. Future generations of Teamsters ushered in the era of pensions and health care for workers. The Teamsters Union is proud of our role as a strong voice in the American workplace and while we strive to protect our hard fought gains, we are always looking to improve upon them.

    Local 962 has an experienced group of full-time officers that negotiate, and enforce Collective Bargaining Agreements on behalf of Local 962 members working for employers in the private sector. We represent workers in the freight industry, package delivery, intermodal, soft drink and food distribution, construction, fabrication, grocery, and general warehousing and trucking. If you bought it in the Southern Oregon area there is a good chance at one point it was handled or delivered by a Teamsters Local 962 member.

    What we do is simple. Represent our members to the fullest. Expand our membership by organizing the unorganized. 

    We are affiliated with Joint Council of Teamsters No. 37 based in Portland, Oregon and are one of more than 400 Teamsters Local’s affiliated with the 1.4-million-member strong International Brotherhood of Teamsters headquartered in Washington D.C.

    In Solidarity,

    What We Do
