Teamsters Local Union No. 340 represents just under 4,000 members in bargaining units across the state, including municipal employees, police, firefighters and freight workers. Local 340 seeks to improve the working conditions and lives of its members through the collective bargaining process, through the political process and legislative efforts.
On February 17, 1937, Teamsters Union Local Union No. 340 was chartered by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Local 340 was then strictly a truck driver's and warehouse man's union. However, our local is now a widely diversified Local Union representing various trades and skills as well as state, county, and municipal employees throughout the entire state of Maine.
