“I’ve been going to the TDU Convention for over ten years, and I keep coming back year after year.

“The TDU Convention brings together some of the best working Teamsters, stewards and officers to listen and learn from each other. If you’re tired of your boss always getting his way, and looking for solutions, save the date and be there this year.”

Craig Karnia, UPS Steward, Local 705, Chicago

Knowledge Is Power

“I came to the convention for the knowledge. I met warehouse Teamsters from other locals and they shared with me information that I’ve been using: FMLA. Legal rights. Winning more grievances.

“I’m taking what I learned to the members back home. Knowledge is power—get it at the TDU Convention.”

Nicholas Richards, Sysco, Local 355, Baltimore

Find Out You’re Not Alone

“The TDU Convention isn’t just an ‘eat-and-drink-listen-to-speeches’ event. It’s a great educational conference.

“You learn what the companies are thinking and how we can respond. There’s also a lot of camaraderie there—you meet a lot of members who are fighting the same problems you are.

“It’s worth the trip. I know I’ll be there in Chicago.”

Ava Miller, Allied, Local 332, Flint

Solidarity trumps hate.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
