TDU’s Black Caucus Launches Webpage

April 8, 2008: The Black Caucus of Teamsters for a Democratic Union has launched a webpage to share and highlight the work of African American Teamsters to build a strong union.

TDU’s Black Caucus is a network of Black Teamsters from across our union who work together and share strategies for building a union that fights for all of our members.

“It’s time for a union leadership that looks like our union’s membership,” said Willie Hardy, a member of TDU’s International Steering Committee from Memphis, Tenn. “TDU’s Black Caucus is a place for African American Teamsters to talk about how we can get that done.”

If you want to help build a stronger union, your help is needed.

Solidarity trumps hate.

Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
