O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United is proposing a series of constitutional amendments to increase the power of working Teamsters in our union. The Hoffa-backed Vairma-Herrera Slate has attacked these changes, setting up a showdown at the Teamster Convention in June.
TDU will host an online briefing for Teamster Convention Delegates and Alternate Delegates on Saturday, June 5 at 11 am Eastern. Sean O’Brien and other OZ-Teamsters United candidates will join Delegates & Alternate Delegates from every region to discuss issues and amendments that will come up at the Teamster Convention. Register now.
The International Union has made a tentative agreement for a one-year extension of the National Carhaul Contract. It will now go to the local officers for review, and then to the carhaul membership for a ratification vote.
Top Teamster officials once paid themselves nearly $2 million a year in today’s dollars. TDU, the right to vote, and leaders who put members first have brought salaries in line with the rest of the labor movement.
