What is the TNBC?
The Teamsters National Black Caucus (TNBC) is an organization of black Teamster men and women, who are united by their special concerns for rights and conditions of workers. Working within the framework of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Constitution, the TNBC seeks to address pressing issues confronting black workers ranging from increased participation to outreach to the African American community and other communities of color.
What is the TNBC's Purpose?
At its founding, the TNBC had four important goals:
- To organize and educate the unorganized in our communities throughout the United States
- To promote affirmative action in the workplace and in our community
- To encourage political action and legislation
- To increase black participation and uphold the principles of the Teamsters’ movement and to foster the opportunity for all Teamsters to serve in leadership capacities, throughout the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the affiliates.

As a member of the TNBC, you become part of a nationwide organization working within the Teamsters Union to give a stronger voice in your workplace, in your union and in running your government at all levels.
