“The TDU Convention is the place where Teamsters meet to take a hard look at the challenges we face from employers—and the changes we need to make in our union to protect our contracts, benefits and job security.

“That’s why I’ll be there in Cleveland—and you should be too.”

— Chris Roos, Local 1035 Secretary-Treasurer South Windsor, Conn.
