Word from the President of Joint Council 52
Teamsters Joint Council 52 and it’s affiliated Local Unions represents approximately 38,000 members in Ontario in various industries – i.e. freight and tank haul, warehouse, couriers, small package, car carriers, caterers, bakeries, dairies, airport security, movies, volunteer fire fighters, security, hotels, linen and laundry and many more. We cover an area from Alexandria, Ontario in the East, to Windsor, Ontario in the West and Thunder Bay. The Joint Council has expanded its membership by over 7,500 in the last 24 months and most recently, it has been our pleasure to welcome on board the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference, the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference - Maintenance of Way Employees Division, and the Graphic Communications Conference of the IBT/Local 100M.
We are affiliated with Teamsters Canada, which has approximately 125,000 members in Canada, and we are also affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in the United States, which has approximately 1,400,000 members in North America. With regard to the latter, we have an agreement in place which allows us to be totally autonomous with the way we run our affairs for our Canadian membership.
