The Teamster Magazine is normally a cover-to-cover propaganda sheet for the Hoffa administration. But the February issue features a break from this routine. 

The Hoffa administration was required to publish four pages of material provided by Fred Zuckerman and the Teamsters Untied slate—thanks to an election rule supported many years ago by Teamsters for a Democratic Union.

Campaign volunteers collected over 63,000 petition signatures to accredit the Teamsters United slate last year. Fred Zuckerman and Teamsters United candidates will be officially nominated at the Teamster Convention in late June.  

The Hoffa Campaign is putting on a full court press to try to prevent an election by blocking the nomination of opposition candidates at the IBT Convention. Supporters of Teamsters United are running for Convention Delegate in locals across the country to make sure members have a choice against Hoffa and Hall in an International Union election this fall. 

The February campaign "battle pages" feature members speaking out on the issues and why they're supporting Teamsters United.

    I am really quite incensed that we have a place here to state our views but sometimes entire threads are removed yet you leave spam posts up for a very long time and have taken away the ability to flag them.

    We all have very valid comments to post and there has been no foul language.

    I most likely will not be renewing my membership. Very disappointed. Thanks.

    When the cuts begin. I hope the gov. has some left over fema trailers from katrina that we teamsters can have…because our lives matter also. Thank you very nice one time.

    In my opinion, it is a good idea to get NEW people. No doubt, the Hoffa administration has abused their power for personal gains. Their purpose is to do what is best for the Union workers, not do what is best for their ego’s and/or pocketbooks. At lot of times that is what happens, with people that stay in power too long.
