The Election Supervisor has scheduled a debate for the General President candidates on Thursday, August 25 in the Washington, DC area.

Both Fred Zuckerman and the Hoffa Campaign have agreed to the date. The question is whether Hoffa will show up.

Hoffa has invented an excuse and ducked out of every General President debate since he was elected. He even negotiated an escape clause into the Election Rules that allows him to send General Secretary-Treasurer candidate Ken Hall as his stand-in.

“It’s time for Hoffa to face the members and answer for his failed record of contract givebacks, corruption, and pension cuts,” said General President candidate Fred Zuckerman.
