“The Vote NO movement is alive and well in Carhaul, and sent the union back to the table. Joining up with TDU and the Teamsters United Campaign have helped us build a network that’s 1,000 members strong. We’re going to keep organizing until we get the contract we deserve.”

Jose Lizarraga, Waste Management, Local 396, Los Angeles

Statement on Charlottesville

The events in Charlottesville have aroused the conscience of our country and the world. TDU condemns the racism and violence of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK, today and everyday. We stand in solidarity with the victims of the violence and their families. We are more determined than ever to fight racism by uniting all Teamsters for social and economic justice. Solidarity trumps hate.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
