      The goal of the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee is to strengthen positive representation for Teamster women throughout the union. The committee is encouraged to organize Teamster initiatives and coordinate Teamster activities, including regular support of charitable organizations and training opportunities for rank-and-file members.

      Participating committee members are part of an organization established to unite Teamster women to address their concerns and issues in the workplace; to promote women’s involvement across all levels of the Teamsters Union; to foster better relationships and communication between members; and to build solidarity within the union.

      Since its inception in 2009, the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee has brought together affiliated representatives to strengthen communication and leadership opportunities for women throughout the union. All Teamsters, women and men, are welcome to participate in our regular meetings, trainings, seminars, fundraising and scholarship opportunities.
