ABF Ballots Go Out Aug 6

UPDATED August 1, 2013: The ballots in the second-round vote on the ABF contract go out on August 6, and will be counted on August 28. Teamsters covered by the seven rejected supplements continue to be kept in the dark about what the IBT has done to improve the offer.

We do know that in the Central road and cartage supplements, they made the most minor change imaginable: allowing Teamsters to split the days in a third week of vacation. If you are lucky enough to even have a third vacation week, after you give one up.

This seems to be the best the Hoffa-Hall leadership can do for freight Teamsters. If you think a change in leadership is needed to rebuild Teamster power in trucking, we invite you to Renew your membership or Join TDU today.

Schedule of Voting: August 6, ballots mailed out. August 14, if you do not have a ballot, contact your local union to get one. August 28, vote count.

If you would like to be an observer at the vote count, contact TDU.

The list of the seven supplements rejected is in a bulletin issued by the IBT today.

An Ugly Start to Electronic Voting

It was an ugly start for electronic voting on national contracts. For the first time in more than a decade, the Hoffa administration tried to deny members and vote count observers the right to see the ballot count results from each local union. But after a week of delays and inquiries by TDU attorney Barbara Harvey, the IBT relented, and turned over the ABF vote totals to TDU's designated observer John Palmer.
