How Many Delegates Will Your Local Elect?

June 25, 2010: An election is just months away in every Teamster local, including yours, to choose delegates to go to the International Union Convention.

In the vast majority of locals, the nominations will be in January or February 2011, and the ballots will go into the mail to members 30 days following the nominations. The elections will be overseen and certified by the independent Election Supervisor and his staff.

The delegates at the Convention, to be held June 27 – July 1, 2011, will have two very important jobs: they will vote on who to nominate as candidates for Teamster General President and all the positions on the General Executive Board; and they will vote on amendments to the Teamster Constitution – either to grant more membership accountability, or to give more power over members to top officers.

A chart of the number of delegates that each traditional Teamster local will elect is available here. Each local will also elect alternate delegates.

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.
