About Local 986

Chartered in 1948, Local 986 grew steadily during the post-World War II industrial expansion of Southern California. Under the dynamic leadership of M.E. “Andy” Anderson, Michael J. Riley and John F. Harren, the Local organized a wide variety of job classifications from parking lot attendants to airline pilots. For decades, this local union has been at the forefront of organizing new members and has assisted other local unions with their organizing campaigns. This dynamic growth and superior representation was noticed by other Locals who asked to merge into 986 in order to seek common goals and expanded opportunities.

What does it mean to be a Teamster member?

For more than 100 years the Teamsters Union has been a leader in setting the standard for higher wages, better benefits and improved working conditions for workers throughout the United States and Canada.

Teamster members can find a variety of ways to participate to help build a stronger union — from supporting coworkers in their struggle for justice, helping with the bargaining process to joining a local union committee or becoming a volunteer organizer.
