A Note from the TDU Trustees

April 2, 2007: This year is shaping up to be a truly exciting time for TDU and the Teamster reform movement. With the Make UPS Deliver campaign, a nation-wide tour of pension workshops, bylaws reform and local union elections, TDU members are hard at work pushing for change in our union (check out page ___ for an exciting bylaws victory in Boston).

We need more resources to do it. We rely on Teamsters and retirees for our support. As the elected trustees of TDU, it’s our job to make sure we have the money we need to carry on the fight.

This April, we will be asking TDU members, through the mail, for financial support to expand our efforts. We need your financial support to keep TDU going and growing.

That’s why I hope you’ll join us in making a generous financial contribution to TDU. Every penny you donate will be put to good use.

And if you’re not already a member of TDU, the best thing you can to do to support our work is to join today. Thanks for your support!

In Solidarity,
Willie Hardy, Local 667, Memphis
