Regular membership is available to any Black Teamster in good standing with their Local Union. Such persons will become members and remain in good standing by paying the annual membership fees set forth by the TNBC. Upon retirement, regular membership shall continue.

Associate membership may be granted to persons of goodwill regardless of ethnic origin or Teamster membership. The annual membership fee for associate members will be twenty dollars ($20).

Retired membership is available to retired Teamster members who were not members of the TNBC before retirement. Retired membership will carry the same status and require the same fees as that of an associate membership.



The annual membership fee for Regular Membership is $50.00. There is also a one-time initiation fee of $10.00 for new members.



Those wishing to join the TNBC must join a local chapter. If there is not a chapter in your area you can click here to contact the TNBC and ask about starting your own chapter. Click here to find a TNBC chapter near you.

Membership in a local chapter automatically affiliates you with the national organization and entitles you to participate in national events.
