Teamsters 117 is one of only a handful of Teamster Locals across the country that has an experienced legal team on staff. Local 117 attorneys fight on behalf of members in arbitration cases, unfair labor practice litigation, and during contract negotiations.
Local 117 members at the DOC are eligible to enroll in a benefit exclusive to Teamsters working in public safety- the Teamsters Legal Defense Fund (TLDF). For more information about the Teamsters Legal Defense Fund, view an application and pamphlet. If you have questions, talk to your Business Representative.
