Convoy Dispatch Is Now Teamster Voice

For over three decades, hundreds of thousands of Teamsters have turned to Convoy Dispatch as the most reliable source of news about what’s really happening in our union.

Now that same reliable information you count on has a new name: Teamster Voice.

This November, members at the TDU Convention voted to approve the name change.

Why? “Our newspaper has been the voice for working Teamsters for over three decades,” said Michael Savwoir, a member of Local 41 and a co-chair of TDU’s International Steering Committee. “It was time for a new name that speaks to all Teamsters. When we saw the name Teamster Voice, we knew this one was it.”

We intend to be a voice for Teamster members, and Teamsters need a stronger voice in our union. If you agree, spread the Voice to your fellow Teamsters. And give us your ideas, so we will be your voice.

TDU published the first issue of our newspaper back in 1976, under the name Convoy. The name changed to Convoy Dispatch in 1979 when TDU merged with PROD, an organization formed to promote drivers’ safety and health.

Members submitted over 300 suggestions for the new name. Thank you to all members who participated in our contest and helped give our movement’s newspaper a new name.

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.
