Time to Meet with Congressional Reps

Teamster pension activists from the Twin Cities met recently with Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). They reported having a very fruitful discussion.

"It was heartening to hear how informed our Congressman was on the issues," said Bob McNattin a retiree from Teamsters Local 120. "Ellison knows how hard we organized to get Treasury to reject the Central States cuts, but he also knows we still need real solutions and legislation to protect our retirement security." The delegation left the meeting confident that the Congressman would remain an important ally going forward. These Minnesota Teamsters encourage other committees or pension activists to meet with their Senators and Representatives or their staffs. We need to keep growing support and visibility in this election year.

    I sure trust Clintons’ pick for VP much more than Trumps’ who has been anti Union his entire political career!

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.
