Freight Contract Proposals Due by August 13

July 18, 2007: The International Union has requested all freight Local Unions to hold Contract Proposal Meetings by August 3, and to submit proposals to be received in Washington by August 13.

We encourage all freight members and stewards to take the time to submit proposals. A copy of the form to use is attached. (There is one form for the master (Articles 1-39) and one for the supplement). You can make copies to submit one proposal on each, and to get fellow Teamsters to do the same.

These proposals may be turned in to your local union by August 3 or mailed directly to the IBT.

The International Union has given very little time for this process, in the middle of the vacation season. Despite that situation, we urge members to use this opportunity to get involved now.

The forms are attached. Indicate the Article you want to change, or write “NEW” if proposed new article.

If sending directly to the IBT, send to Jim Kimball – Economics and Contracts Dept, Teamsters Union, 25 Louisiana Ave N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001.

What Are Your Proposals for the NMFA?

The TDU Freight Network is gathering proposal ideas so that we can choose a targeted number of key issues to rally around.

We won’t win everything. But united, the rank-and-file can make an impact on next year’s NMFA bargaining by holding our negotiators’ feet to the fire on our key demands.
