Hoffa Regime Resignations

Defeated Southern VP Tyson Johnson and Central VP Gordon Sweeton have resigned from all their Teamster positions. But the damage has been done to freight Teamsters.

Hoffa has announced the resignations of Freight Division Director Tyson Johnson and Assistant Director Gordon Sweeton, who oversaw the dismantling of the National Master Freight Agreement and the gutting of YRC Teamsters' pensions.

The International Union has not named a new Freight Director. Local officers who need assistance were just put on notice to call the Freight Division.

Freight Teamsters have been without leadership for years, but this is a new low.

The Hoffa-Hall regime is crumbling. It's time to clean house.
