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.
Mr. Fred Horvath presented the results of the Teamsters Local 14 & City of Henderson 2014 contract negotiations.
Mr. Horvath did an awesome job of explaining the challenges faced by the Teamsters work force since 2008 and that we have not received any increase in compensation since the down turn of the economy. His high level overview of the financial situation that our recently ratified contract puts the City in was duly noted by some members of the Council and Mr. Horvath was challenged on a few key points. Mr. Horvath was diligent in downplaying the fact that although the Teamsters workforce would be receiving base wage increases and a considerable lump sum payout, it was in line with recently agreed upon compensation packages that other City work groups have received. Members of the Council did recognize that fact that the Teamsters have not only endured work place challenges thru doing more with less and having to deal with no cost of living increases as the local economy begins to “recover”, but accolades were made known that the City of Henderson still remains a great place to live and work due to the compassion that all city employees have for their jobs.
Needless to say the contract was approved unanimously (5-0) and we feel that Mr. Horvath not only did the Teamsters Local 14 proud but deserves recognition for his high level performance in representing the City while understanding the trepidations the membership has endured to maintain the level of service that has kept the City of Henderson a Premier Community to live, work and play.
Every Vote makes a difference.!!!!!
Please get involved in you and your families livihood

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.
