Teamster Election 2021: How to Get Involved

Members are taking action—to elect new union leadership, win reforms, and use the election period to grow TDU.

Making Plans for the Petition Drive

“TDU members in the Chicago area are working with other members to plan an organizing and educational meeting for May. We'll bring Teamster members together to make plans and train sisters and brothers for the petition drive. We know how to get it done!”

Sean Orr, Chicago Local 705

 

Electing Delegates Who Support Reforms

“Members at UPS are suffering the consequences of the Two-Thirds Rule by working under a contract we rejected. We need to elect Convention Delegates to make sure what we vote for is what we get, and not get stuck with a bad deal we rejected.”

Andrea Dollar, Dallas Local 767

 

Organizing Meetings & Campaign Events

“We’re planning a campaign rally and organizing meeting for Ohio in April. We’re working with supporters of the O’Brien Zuckerman Teamster United to help make it happen.”

Derek Redding, Columbus Local 413

 

Raising Funds for Campaign War-Chest

“I’m selling raffle tickets to Teamsters who work at Central States. We need to build up the TDU war chest to wage the grassroots campaign we need to bring new leadership to our union.”

Tilsa Fernandez, Chicago Local 743
