A Message from the TDU Trustees

Good Teamster jobs on the line. Pension and benefit cuts. And a Teamster leadership that’s asleep at the wheel. Our union needs TDU more than ever.

It’s going to take a lot of inspiration, organization, and hard work for our union to make it through these tough times. That’s why we are stepping up TDU activity this year.

TDU members and organizers are hitting the road, getting Convoy out to new places, and meeting new Teamsters who want change in our union. We’ve got more educational conferences and workshops planned than ever this year. And Convoy circulation has risen 20 percent.

We’re making sure members get the information they need—and building the kind of organization working Teamsters need to stand up to Corporate America’s attacks and take back our union in 2011.

But TDU can’t step up its activity unless we all step up our support. That’s why we’re writing to you today.

If you’re a TDU member, we’ve asked for your support through the mail this month. At this critical time for our union and our movement, we urge you to consider making a donation. To make a donation or sign up for a monthly pledge, just click here.

Not a member of TDU? Stand together with other Teamsters fighting to get our union back on track. Join TDU today.

In solidarity,
Willie Hardy, Local 667, Memphis
David Kremer, Local 320, Minneapolis
Joe Sexauer, Local 743, Chicago
