Featured speakers included Fred Zuckerman, Tim Sylvester, and International Vice President John Palmer.

Members shared strategies in educational workshops on protecting yourself from discipline, preparing for UPS contract negotiations, and building unity and getting members involved.

Sandy Pope led a workshop on turning a workplace problem into a enforcement campaign. In the closing session, Mark Timlin from New Jersey Local 177 presented Sandy with a plaque recognizing her four decades of activism and leadership in the Teamster reform movement.

The conference was co-sponsored by Teamsters for a Democratic Union and Teamsters United.
