Teamsters General Local Union No. 346 is a Local union affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. We have a jurisdictional area of Northern Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin. In addition we have a five state jurisdiction (Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and most of Iowa) for Pipeline construction and repair.
We represent a majority of crafts that this area of the country supports, from Papermills, UPS, Public Employees, Hospitals, and the list goes on.
Organized labor has had an important roll in your life, whether you have been in a Union, or not. When your current employer is taking advantage of you and your co-workers, you need to form a union. America was built on unions, and the time to orginize against greed is now.
