Carhaul Contract Votes Finally Revealed

One month after the fact, the Hoffa administration has finally revealed the local-by-local vote results on the Jack Cooper contract vote of September 12. It took them one month to tally 25 numbers?

Then Fred Zuckerman sent a demand letter on September 24, pointing out the legal obligation. This letter was posted by TDU and spread widely. Finally, a meeting of the General Executive Board is taking place today, where the issue was sure to come up. So Hoffa and Moore finally figured out how to tally 25 numbers, and posted it last night.

It is important that Teamsters retain the right to see the details of votes on master contracts. Thanks to brother Zuckerman and others who made it happen here.
