Hoffa Escalates Attack on the Right to Vote

July 30, 2014: The Hoffa administration is escalating its attack on Teamster voting rights. Hoffa administration lawyers are filing new papers with Judge Loretta Preska in a bid to end fair, independently supervised elections in the Teamsters. The case could be decided as early as September.

Judge Preska can’t just hear from Hoffa. She needs to hear from us.

More than 3,000 Teamsters have signed an Open Letter to Judge Preska, including 1,744 who have signed online.

We’ve set a goal of delivering 10,000 petition signatures to Judge Loretta Preska by Labor Day.

Can you help us reach our goal and save the right to vote by:

Clicking here to sign the petition?

Emailing a link to the petition to your friends and asking them to sign and sharing it on your Facebook wall?

If you’d like copies of the petition form and a leaflet explaining the issue to distribute, please contact TDU at 313-842-2600 or info [at] tdu.org and we’ll be happy to mail you a packet immediately.
