Welcome to the Carhaul Division webpage—home to scores of local unions that represent nearly 12,000 workers across the United States. These workers have a strong impact on all of our lives, safely transporting all newly manufactured cars and trucks in the United States and Canada.
Teamster bargaining unit employees have been doing this work under the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) since the 1940s.
The Carhaul Division coordinates activities and priorities with local and regional representatives. We negotiate and administer NMATA, which applies to vehicle transport nationwide, and ensure that employers meet their commitments to Teamster-represented employees.
Our goals are to:
Negotiate multi-area, multi-employer carhaul agreements that set the industry standard;
Organize strategically, targeting non-union companies;
Raise wages and benefits to be the highest in the industry;
Protect Teamster jobs by resolving grievances and disputes that may arise between employees and employers; and
Support the strong National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement and its supplements.
I am very proud to serve carhaul drivers whose professionalism and experience continue to set the standard for the industry.
