Are you one of the 104,584?

October 19, 2011: 104,584. That’s the number of ballots received as of October 18 by the Election Supervisor. That is 7.8% of all eligible Teamsters.

And that’s typical. In the 2006 election for Teamster President, two out of three votes were returned after the first week.

Sure, some ballots are in the mail and on their way. But hundreds of thousands of ballots are still sitting on kitchen tables. (A detailed chart listing returns by region is available here).

That means we still have work to do—passing out leaflets, making calls, sending texts, and reminding Teamsters to vote.

And it means Sandy Pope can win this election—by turning out our votes now, and keeping at it, long after the Hoffa campaigners have stopped.

What You Can Do Now

This election is in your hands—and concerned Teamster activists like you.

The Sandy Pope Campaign produced new leaflets you can use, including one for UPS part-timers.

Central States Pension: Latest Financial Report

However, the loss would have been much worse except for a one-time payment of $467 million by the Kroger Corporation; this was a lump sum payment to pull all Kroger and some Kroger-contractor employees out of the pension fund permanently.
