As the Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 705 I want to welcome you to our newly designed website. Teamsters Local 705 proudly represents over 16,000 members in and around the Chicago land area.
Local 705 represents UPS, Freight, Cartage, Warehousing, Public Works, movers and many thousands of other members in the Midwest. We have and will always fight hard for fair contracts and justice for our members in their respective work places. That is what Teamsters Local 705 is built on.
We hope that you enjoy our website and visit often for updates.

Stand up for your community by becoming an informed advocate for those dealing directly or indirectly with mental health issues.
The management at The Central States Funds want to impose unnecessary and unrealistic work production standards - putting quantity over quality in serving the Teamster membership in these Funds. They also want to rollback benefits that were negotiated under previous contracts.
After a year of negotiating, the union has voted down management proposals five different times. Local 743 is hopeful that the strike action will bring management back to the table with a realistic proposal that will help the hardworking employees who help our Teamster membership each and every day.
Happy International Women's Day from Teamsters Local 705! In celebration, we salute our strong union sisters who serve our communities each day
