Teamsters	 Local	 986	 in	 California.	 The	
union	and	the	company	have	been	bargain-
ing	 to	 achieve	 a	 first	 contract	 for	 over	 14	
months,	but	the	company	continues	to	de-
lay	 contract	 talks	 or	 show	 up	 unprepared	
to	bargain.	Teamster	tankhaul	drivers	from	
local	 unions	 across	 the	 United	 States	 are	
rallying	behind	the	contract	bargaining	for	
Local	986.	
	 Throughout	the	country,	Teamsters	rep-
resent	 more	 than	 10,000	 tankhaul	 drivers	
in	every	state.	Several	area	locals	of	Team-

7-11’s	 to	 show	 support	 of	 the	 tankhaul	
drivers	 in	 Local	 986,	 stated	 Teamsters
