NLRB to IBT: No Harassing Organizers Who Join Union

August 24, 2012: The International Union has been required by the NLRB to post notices that the IBT will cease harassing union organizers for joining a union. The notice includes that the IBT will not tell them they will no longer be Teamsters if they join a union, or that they will be laid off or that they cannot wear a union pin.

A majority of IBT organizers voted to form a union and are seeking to get "just cause" protection. So far the IBT has refused to negotiate.

A copy of the NLRB notice is here.

Time to Meet with Congressional Reps

Teamster pension activists from the Twin Cities met recently with Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). They reported having a very fruitful discussion. "It was heartening to hear how informed our Congressman was on the issues," said Bob McNattin a retiree from Teamsters Local 120. "Ellison knows how hard we organized to get Treasury to reject the Central States cuts, but he also knows we still need real solutions and legislation to protect our retirement security." The delegation left the meeting confident that the Congressman would remain an important ally going forward. These Minnesota Teamsters encourage other committees or pension activists to meet with their Senators and Representatives or their staffs. We need to keep growing support and visibility in this election year.
