The petition for Labor & Trades has been filed!

On Thursday, February 16th at 12:30 PM Teamsters Local 322 officially filed a petition with the Richmond City Labor Administrator to initiate an election for the Labor & Trades bargaining unit. In the coming weeks, Labor & Trades employees will receive a ballot in the mail which will be used to vote for your union. This has been a long time coming, and we are as excited as you are to start the bargaining process!


In the coming weeks, you will be contacted by Teamster representatives. They will walk you through the voting process and discuss the next steps in the bargaining process after you elect us as the bargaining agent for your union. There is a lot of information, and we want to keep you involved and informed in the process! If you have questions, now is the time to get them answered.

The most important thing right now, is to ensure that your correct address is on file with Richmond City. This will ensure you get your ballot in the mail. If you have to update your address, you can do so by contacting Richmond City Human Resources at (804)646-5660 or by logging into the "RAPID" address update system.”

Collective Bargaining in Richmond City

By joining the Teamsters, you will become part of a labor family which has been in the City of Richmond, and surrounding counties, for several decades! We welcome the opportunity to represent you. As your advocates, we will fight for better working conditions, better wages, and better benefits for all city employees.


The Teamsters believe that EVERY employee in the City of Richmond deserves to have a voice in their workplace.

Teamsters in the Public Sector

The Teamsters represent over 200,000 public sector workers just like you throughout North America. We fight for them from coast-to-coast, from big cities to the suburbs to rural communities. By joining together with a strong union, Teamsters in the public sector have won better compensation, paid time off, better working conditions, a grievance procedure and much more.

Whether you work in groups of 11,000 or 11, you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace. The Teamsters are led by rank-and-file leaders, just like you. As a Teamster member, you elect your local union leaders to serve as stewards, officers, bargaining team members and other roles.
