Letter from the Campaign Trail

August 12, 2011: I’m writing you from the campaign trail.  I’m in the middle of a Rust Belt Tour that’s taken me through Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Detroit. 

The response has been overwhelming.  Everywhere I go members tell me Hoffa’s time is up and we need a new General President that will stand up to employers, protect our contracts and benefits and rebuild our union’s power.

I have no doubt we can win this election.  But I’ll need your help.

In a three-way race, it will take 150,000 votes to win.  I got 100,000 votes in the 2006 International Union election. We’re within striking distance of making Teamster history. 

Here’s what it will take to win and how you can help.

I have no doubt that working together we can make win this election and make Teamster history.  Send me a message with your comments and what you can do to help beat Hoffa and rebuild Teamster Power.

In solidarity,
Sandy Pope

P.S.  A huge thank you to all my Teamster brothers and sisters who are contributing their time and hard-earned dollars to this campaign. We’ve launched a nationwide fundraising appeal to ask you to dig deep for the stretch run.  Click here to check it out.  And click here to donate online.

An Ugly Start to Electronic Voting

It was an ugly start for electronic voting on national contracts. For the first time in more than a decade, the Hoffa administration tried to deny members and vote count observers the right to see the ballot count results from each local union. But after a week of delays and inquiries by TDU attorney Barbara Harvey, the IBT relented, and turned over the ABF vote totals to TDU's designated observer John Palmer.
