Black Leadership Conference

African American Teamster activists came together for a weekend of education and union solidarity at the TDU Black Leadership Conference, July 13-14.

Fifty Teamsters from over a dozen locals shared ideas for involving more Black Teamsters in our union and developing new leaders at every level of the Teamsters.

“It’s possible for us to learn, to get together, and to grow. The meeting planted the seeds for a future of more black leaders in the Teamsters Union” - Kioma Forero.

Currently, only one of the 24 members of the International Union General Executive Board are African Americans. There are two Latinos and one woman in our International Union leadership.

The next meeting of the TDU Black Caucus will be at the TDU Convention, November 1-3 in Chicago.
