Employers ‘Relieved’ by Hoffa Win

The Journal of Commerce reports that “employer that have dealt with Hoffa” are “relieved” by Hoffa’s election win because of his record for negotiating “deals involving wage and benefit concessions.”

This sounds like something TDU would say—and we agree with it. But this report is from the Journal of Commerce, a leading publication that covers labor and transportation issues for employers.

In "Hoffa Wins Teamsters election", the Journal of Commerce reporter is blunt: “Employers that have dealt with Hoffa in contract negotiations, especially during and since the recession, are likely relieved” by Hoffa’s 6,600-vote margin over Zuckerman.

The results of the Teamster election are not certified and election protests are pending.

“Contract negotiations with employers, as well as concerns about pensions, likely hurt Hoffa,” the JOC said. “The election results underscore discontent over contract concessions negotiated by Hoffa,” including freight, UPS and carhaul.

Other publications have written that employers are fearful that the strong showing by Teamsters United in the election could mean fewer concessions ahead.
