Teamsters Voting for Change

Teamster members are voting for change.

Yesterday, the 4,000 members of Dayton Local 957 voted overwhelmingly to replace their long time officers with the New Leadership Slate.

Last week, the 8,000 members of Harrisburg Local 776 overwhelmingly rejected their incumbent officers in favor of a new team of leaders and business agents.

Dan Webb, who won the secretary treasurer office in Local 957 yesterday, summed it up:  “I feel humbled and blessed. The membership of Local 957 have sent a clear message. They will not be taken for granted and will not accept non-responsive leadership."

“I’m proud to be a part of a great team who plan to deliver to the members exactly what they want – a leadership that looks out for the members’ interests first and always,” said Webb, a 25-year Teamster at ABF.

We wish new officers in these and other locals the best. They have their work cut out for them. And they remind us of an important lesson: members who organize for change can make it happen.

    This clown has no idea what he’s doing. We have a management team disciplining people with no documentation, doing so retroactively, and sometimes taking up to 4 months to enact discipline. I thought LeMaster was an idiot but these jack wagons take the cake. I might as well use our contract for kindling because this fool doesn’t seem to care about its contents.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

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.
