Prepare Now for Winter Delegate Races

September 25, 2005: Almost every Teamster local union will hold a supervised, mail-ballot election this winter to elect delegates to the IBT Convention next June. A schedule for your local union’s delegate race will be available by Sept. 30.

You need to get a copy and get involved. By running for Convention Delegate—or supporting reform candidates for delegate—you can strengthen our campaign to dump Hoffa in 2006.

Do you want to replace the Hoffa administration with strong, accountable leaders who will fight for working Teamsters? Reform delegates are needed to officially nominate opposition candidates and put a reform slate on the ballot.

Delegates will also vote on reforms to the IBT Constitution and proposals to hold pension trustees accountable to the members.

Get Your Local Union’s Plan
By September 30, your local must submit a Local Union Plan to the Election Supervisor, with the schedule for your election—including the date of nominations.

You can get a head start right now by requesting a complete copy of the Local Union Plan, which your local must provide to any member that requests it. This plan includes a full worksite list with the location of every employer in your local.

The place to be if you are running for delegate or want to be involved in the campaign is the TDU Convention in St. Louis, Nov. 4-6. Through workshops and member-to member interaction, you will learn how to run, win and participate effectively at the IBT Convention next June.
