Letters from our Members

September 11, 2009: I think what is going on in the carhaul sector is typical Hoffa tactics.We shot down the first carhaul contract, and made them remove many of the unfair and unrealistic concessions.

They run a second contract at us, that was better than the first, but still in need of improvement. That one got voted in, so now here we are months later, and they are going local to local to sell out the carhaulers from inside out.

Seems there is nowhere to hide from these cheats. The bunch of them have to go, and in a hurry. While they are still in power, they can still do horrible things to the carhaul sector. We not only have to get them replaced, but we have to fight them off every day until we get rid of them.

All the while they give us members the shaft, they are cashing in on record earnings, and multiple pensions. Time to put our butts on the line, we either make a stand right now, or we are dead.

Boys, “Let’s get ready to rumble.”

We’re in a Race To the Bottom

They’re just sinking union LTL with their greed and stupidity.

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.
