“Last year, we brought a few sanitation workers from Los Angeles to their first TDU convention. We’ve taken what we learned back home to organize co-workers to win stronger contracts. This year, we’ve already got eight members committed to go.”

Uniting Teamsters for Strong Contracts

“TDU unites members to organize for stronger contracts. Teamsters have learned that we can’t rely on Hoffa to put up a fight—it’s up to us, the members, to make it happen. If you’re sick and tired of concessions and care about our future, you need to be at the TDU Convention.”

Connecting Teamsters, Building Power

“At my first Convention last year, I saw firsthand how TDU keeps Teamsters across the country who are working for change connected. This year I'm looking forward to meeting more Teamster brothers and sisters and learning new tools I can bring back home.”

There is no report that Taylor attempted to do anything about the stretching out of “6-8 weeks” to 10-11 weeks.
