International Brotherhood of Teamsters

International Brotherhood of Teamsters

Graphic Designer

Based in Washington, DC


The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) is America’s largest, most diverse union. In 1903, the Teamsters started as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. These drivers were the backbone of America’s robust economic growth, but they needed to organize to wrest their fair share from greedy corporations. Today, the Union’s task is exactly the same.

The Teamsters are known as the champion of freight drivers and warehouse workers, but have organized workers in virtually every occupation imaginable, both professional and non-professional, private sector and public sector.

The Strategic Initiatives Department oversees the Teamsters’ communications, strategic research, economic analysis, and capital strategies as well as the Teamsters History Project. Strategic Initiatives provides essential resources to Teamster affiliates to succeed in organizing, public relations and contract campaigns, expand audience reach and improve messaging and public perception of the Teamsters.

The Graphic Designer oversees all web design, including website development, social media strategy, digital content development and management, preparing materials for the web, website marketing, e-activism, and new technologies integration.
