Teamsters First Slate Wins in Local 100

December 20, 2010: Cincinnati members have voted for a new team to lead their local.

Butch Lewis, a Holland city driver and former candidate for International Vice President on the Tom Leedham slate, led his Teamsters First Slate to victory in Cincinnati Local 100. Lewis has been a steward, business agent and past officer in Local 100.

“The membership voted for change,” said Lewis.

“Our local represents everything from UPS to freight, manufacturing to bus drivers, construction to public sector. It’s our job to bring members together to win strong contracts and then make sure they get enforced.”

Support at UPS gave the ticket a big boost. UPSers Sam Bucalo (secretary-treasurer), Teresa Turner (trustee), and Dave Couch (recording secretary) led the slate’s efforts at UPS.

Ten of the eleven candidates for executive board and elected business rep on the Teamsters First slate won.

“We’re counting on Butch’s experience to help get this local moving in the right direction,” commented Rusty Monahon, a TDU activist and driver out of Holland.


We Will Bring Members Together

“The membership voted for change.

“Our local represents everything from UPS to freight, manufacturing to bus drivers, construction to public sector.

“It’s our job to bring members together to win strong contracts and then make sure they get enforced.”

An Ugly Start to Electronic Voting

It was an ugly start for electronic voting on national contracts. For the first time in more than a decade, the Hoffa administration tried to deny members and vote count observers the right to see the ballot count results from each local union. But after a week of delays and inquiries by TDU attorney Barbara Harvey, the IBT relented, and turned over the ABF vote totals to TDU's designated observer John Palmer.
