IBT Organizing Lags Again in 2004

October 30, 2005: Teamster organizing figures have decreased for the second straight year, according to the latest figures available from the National Labor Relations Board. A new report on Teamster organizing reveals the Hoffa administration is lagging far behind the organizing levels achieved in the 1990s.

Hoffa recently pulled the Teamsters out of the AFL-CIO, supposedly to free up resources for organizing. But only one percent of Teamster dues were going to the AFL-CIO. Half that amount is now going to the Change to Win Coalition for a net savings of just $4 million per year.

In contrast, Hoffa’s broken campaign promises to "Cut and Cap" officers’ pay and to introduce other financial reforms have cost our union more than $15 million that could have been put toward organizing.
