“For 27 years, the $100,000 Club has given members the facts and Teamsters have responded by demanding reforms. TDU and the $100,000 Club have reduced dues waste and freed up millions to spend on union power. History proves it. Now let's finish the job.”

2006 Annual $100,000 Club
For 27 years, TDU has published the $100,000 Club—a comprehensive listing of all Teamster officials who make more than $100,000 a year. The $100,000 Club is non-partisan. We publish the name of every Teamster official who makes more than the limit, regardless of whether they are a friend or foe of TDU, a do-nothing fat-cat or a committed Teamster.
How the $100,000 Club and TDU Have Changed Teamster History
TDU began publishing the "$100,000 Club" in 1979. Armed with this information, and the Right to Vote, Teamsters have demanded financial reforms and won them. Read more.

One Salary is Plenty
“When officials give themselves big multiple salaries, they forget where they come from and can’t relate to the rank and file. That’s where I disagree with them. I always took only salary, just like the members.”

The TDU Steering Committee is considering in the future printing salaries of only those officials who make over $150,000, the limit that Hoffa himself had in his platform when he ran for Teamster president.
What do you think? We are seeking the opinions and input of all Teamsters.
When TDU began researching Teamster finances to keep members informed, 27 years ago, $100,000 was a fat cat salary. Today, the full listing allows Teamster members to compare for themselves their own local union salaries against others, and to decide what is fair compensation for union officers.
