For the first time, Illinois drivers can purchase Teamster specialty license plates for registered vehicles. Plates can be purchased for all passenger vehicles, B-trucks and vans weighing 8,000 pounds or less.
“We are thrilled that so many members are taking advantage of the new license plates,” said John T. Coli, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 727. “The Teamsters license plates not only remind everyone on the road of the strength of our union, but they offer Illinois drivers a special designation to call their own.”
Total fees for new vehicle plates or replacement plates for existing vehicles vary depending on individual vehicle registration. Any member who submitted an original interest form for Teamster license plates in previous years will have their initial Teamsters special plate fee waived.
Teamster license plates can be purchased or renewed through the Secretary of State’s website, by mail, phone at (800) 252-8980 or by visiting a driver services facility.
Proceeds from the sale of Teamsters license plates support the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Fund. All money in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Fund shall be paid as grants to the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Charitable Trust, an independent organization established for religious, charitable, scientific and educational purposes.
Teamsters Local 727 is an affiliate of Teamsters Joint Council 25, America’s premier labor union for Illinois, Chicago and northwest Indiana.
