  1. Teamster

    A teamster, in modern American English, is a truck driver. The trade union named after them is the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, one of the largest unions in the United States. Originally, the term "teamster" referred to a person who drove a team of draft animals, usually a wagon drawn by oxen, horses, or mules. This term was common by the time of the Mexican-American War and the Indian Wars throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries on the American frontier. A teamster might also drive pack animals, such as a muletrain, in which case he was also known as a muleteer or muleskinner. Another name for the occupation was bullwhacker, related to driving oxen. Today this person may be called an outfitter or packer. In Australian English, a teamster was also known as a bullocker or bullocky.
