Will the real Freight Teamster leaders please stand up

July 1, 2010: James Hoffa came into office promising freight Teamsters he would “Restore the Power.” A decade later, what he has delivered is a power outage.

The NMFA has been decimated. UPS Freight was put under a white-paper contract without Teamster benefits. Other trucking organizing has been thin to none. Freight Teamsters’ pensions are in danger.

Hoffa has taken freight—the heart of our union—and driven it off the road. Remember when he told us, “The Hoffa name means power”? Now it’s, “You’re lucky you got a job.”

In the hallways at the two-man and the panels, freight officers say Hoffa has given up on trucking Teamsters and we need a new direction. It’s time to take that talk out of the corridors and straight to the membership. It’s time to stand up for our union.
