Teamster Organizers Petition for Solidarity

August 16, 2013: The organizers who work for the International Union have launched an online petition drive directed at the Hoffa administration.

The petition was launched on MoveOn.org and calls on the Hoffa administration and organizing director Jeff Farmer to bargain fairly with the union of IBT organizers and to maintain their present benefits and terms of employment.

Some organizers have been fired and have suits pending against the Hoffa administration. Fired organizer Tim Lewis won a judgment in June which, including his legal fees, will exceed $1.5 million.

That $1.5 million could have funded a lot of organizing drives. The court's docket summary of Tim Lewis v IBT (2011 CA 002773 B) can be found here.

Here is where you can read the petition and statement from the organizers.
