Letter from the TDU Trustees

January 18, 2010: Will 2010 be better than 2009? Let’s hope so. Thankfully, Teamster members are coming together from across our union to organize for positive change. TDU’s staff, leaders, and activists are getting down to work to help members organize for change.

They’re getting on the road, holding meetings, reaching out to new Teamsters, and sponsoring educational workshops and conferences.

We’re reaching out across our union to build the army of activists we need to win a new direction for our union and win new leadership in the 2011 IBT elections.

All this work takes resources, and we won’t be able do it without the support of committed Teamster members like you. Teamsters generously donated over $36,000 for TDU at our November Convention—and members who couldn’t make it gave more. Your donation at this critical time will help us reach our winter fundraising goal of $50,000.

To make a donation or sign up for a monthly pledge, go to our website at www.tdu.org/donate

In solidarity,

Statement on Charlottesville

The events in Charlottesville have aroused the conscience of our country and the world. TDU condemns the racism and violence of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK, today and everyday. 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

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.
