“Labor Notes shows us that we’re not alone, that there are thousands of union members all over who are leading the charge against the corporate war on workers.

“We’re starting to see the impact and more people getting involved to protect their jobs and rights.

“This year’s conference will be one of the biggest ever. I’ll be there, and you should too.”

Michael Savwoir, Local 41, Kansas City

“I love the diversity you see at Labor Notes conferences. There are so many courageous brothers and sisters from other unions and labor organizations who are facing the same problems we face in the Teamsters. There’s also great workshops taught by some of the best labor experts, including TDU members.

“We’ll have a big Teamster turnout from Chicago. We hope to see you there too.”

Gina Alvarez, Local 743, Chicago

We stand in solidarity with the victims of the violence and their families. We are more determined than ever to fight racism by uniting all Teamsters for social and economic justice. Solidarity trumps hate.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
