The Election Supervisor has scheduled a debate for the General President candidates on Thursday, August 25 in the Washington, DC area.

Both Fred Zuckerman and the Hoffa Campaign have agreed to the date. The question is whether Hoffa will show up.

Hoffa has invented an excuse and ducked out of every General President debate since he was elected. He even negotiated an escape clause into the Election Rules that allows him to send General Secretary-Treasurer candidate Ken Hall as his stand-in.

“It’s time for Hoffa to face the members and answer for his failed record of contract givebacks, corruption, and pension cuts,” said General President candidate Fred Zuckerman.

Want to attend the debate? Teamsters United will be issued a limited number of tickets to the debate. Click here if you're interested in attending.

    It’s insulting on TWO levels…
    that HOFFA has evaded accountability his ENTIRE career as principal officer.
    One] as members who have some expectations that the CONSENT ORDER will be enforced.. (“to ensure a culture of democracy can evolve”)..,
    Two].. as citizens that can wa tch the sleaziest politicians in every election “Spine up” for mandatory debates!!
