Ballot Count Starts November 14

October 18, 2006: The International Union vote count will start on Nov.14 in Alexandria, Va. and will take approximately four days for the Election Supervisor to complete. The process will be open to a number of observers from the Leedham and Hoffa slates.

The count will be done one region at a time, and on a local-by-local basis. TDU will make the ongoing vote count available and post it online.

If you would like to attend the ballot count and serve as an observer for the Leedham Campaign, contact the campaign immediately at (718) 287-6156 to see if observer positions are still open.

Being an election observer is considered union business, so your employer has to let you off work (without pay, of course).

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.
