Laying the Foundation For Change
The upcoming international election is only two years away. It’s none too soon to lay the initial foundation for the campaign.
We need to educate every member with cold, hard facts that the International cannot deny. Getting vital information to the membership—particularly newer, younger members—is very important.
We can put Hoffa and his cronies out to pasture. It will take hard work, long hours, serious fundraising, and other challenges along the way—but just think of what is at stake: a strong union that guarantees our job security and our future.
I had the honor of working in the beginning stages of Ron Carey’s presidential campaign in North Carolina. I am aware that things have changed since 1991, but the need for fair and honest representation, open dialogue with the rank and file, and the pride that goes with the Teamster name has not changed a bit.
