Mass/RI Teamsters for a Democratic Union is a worker-led, grassroots organization that mobilizes for workplace justice, living wages, and a strong, democratic union.
We're organizing rank-and-file Teamsters to fight for higher wages, build power on the job, end corruption in our union, and develop new leadership in the labor movement.
WHAT WE DO….
Fight for Economic Justice
TDU members fight for economic justice—from defending affordable healthcare to opposing pension cuts and contract givebacks.
We’re uniting Teamster members to fight for fair contracts in 2017-2018.
End Part-Time Poverty at UPS
The End Part-Time Poverty at UPS Campaign is a grassroots campaign to make sure that the issues of part-timers and inside workers are addressed. We’re fighting for $15 an hour starting pay, higher wages for every part-timer, more guaranteed hours, more full-time jobs and an end to discrimination and harassment at UPS.
Education for Worker Power
TDU is the place where working Teamsters turn to get information on our rights and how to organize workers to enforce them.
Fighting Corruption & Reforming Our Union
TDU helps members take on union officials who stand with the employers, instead of the members.
We proudly support Teamsters United, the reformers that won the majority of the vote from U.S. Teamsters in the International Union election.
Social & Economic Justice
The labor movement is about fighting for all working people. That’s why TDU members have teamed up with the Fight for 15, Occupy Wall Street, Jobs with Justice, and community campaigns for economic and social justice.
