Why We're Joining TDU

Teamsters from across our union are joining TDU.

We asked some new members why they signed up.

Here's what they had to say.


Educating Members To Fight Back

"At Rhode Island Hospital, we weren't getting the representation we deserve and management had our backs against the wall.

"I joined TDU to get the support and education we need to fight back. Now we're filing grievances and being taken more seriously."

Matthew Martins, Rhode Island Hospital
Local 251, Providence


Informing The Membership

"I joined TDU because I believe a union must be transparent and communicate with its members to be trustworthy and effective.

"TDU provides IBT members with information they won't get anywhere else. A good decision on issues can only be made when members have all the information. Thanks TDU!"

Susan White, Police Dispatcher
Local 2010, California


Uniting Teamsters Across the Country

"TDU works to unite UPS Teamsters all across the country with information members need to enforce our contract.

"I joined to get the education necessary to help other members build our union."

Reginald Harvey, UPS Part-Time
Local 705, Chicago


Organizing to Win Stronger Contracts

"I joined TDU to be part of a network of UPS Freight Teamsters from around the country.

"We're all concerned about our next contract and want to make sure that there are real improvements. That will take an organized contract campaign and TDU is the best place to get started."

Veronica Norton, UPS Freight City Driver
Local 728, Atlanta
