Hoffa, Can You Spare A Dime?

Once-thought extinct, a group of freight Teamsters for Hoffa has been spotted. These undecideds are voting for Hoffa to thank him for a whopping 10¢ increase in their pension contribution.

The YRC pension contribution in the Central and Southern Regions was increased by a dime on August 1. That’s because the MOU provides that if the health and welfare fund requires less than 60¢ an hour, then the Central States Pension Fund will get the difference.

The YRC contribution is now up to $1.85 an hour, compared to $8.55 at ABF. The $1.85 is 21.64% of the full National Master Freight contribution rate.

Grateful Freight Teamsters Speak Out

“After the concessions and pension cuts, I thought Hoffa had given up on us. But now that we got this dime, I realize just how much Hoffa cares. A dime for my pension? Hoffa, you’ve got my vote!”

“Thanks to Hoffa, we’re on the road to pension parity, baby! If we get a dime every year, it will only take 63 years to catch up to what the guys at ABF are getting now. Just do the math, stupid!”

“Some of the guys in my barn just don’t get it. Even though we’re getting ten whole cents, they’re still voting for the Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United slate.”

If you can’t be bought for a dime and you know that Hoffa has to go, do this:

1) Get your ballot and mail it in. If you need a new ballot call, 844-428-8683.

2) Text and call every Teamster in your phone and remind them to vote Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United.

3) Spread the word and keep turning out the vote.  

Hoffa has to go, Teamsters United will win – if we vote!

Historic Victories Within Reach This Week

TDU members have organized for decades to completely end the Two-Thirds Rule and increase rank-and-file power in contract negotiations. This week, those changes will become a reality, thanks to united action by the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United coalition.  

The Constitution Committee voted today to recommend that the IBT Convention vote to eliminate the Two-Thirds Rule, require rank-and-file members on all contract negotiating committees, and ban the International from imposing contract supplements and riders that are rejected by the members.

The Showdown over Teamster Rights

The IBT Convention starts this coming Tuesday, June 22, and the fight is on to win major changes to our Teamster Constitution.
