How You Can Help Elect OZ-Teamsters United

Hundreds of Teamsters joined a zoom event organized by TDU to help launch a national accreditation petition drive to elect the OZ-Teamsters United Slate. Find out the next steps and how you can get involved.

The 2020-21 International Union election is underway. The first step is a petition drive to officially accredit OZ-Teamsters United as candidates for International Union office.

Thousands of volunteers are needed to collect over 100,000 Teamster signatures this summer. 

TDU members voted to endorse OZ-Teamsters United and we will be working hard to make the petition drive a success. 

The OZ-Teamsters United website has posted petition drive materials, including petitions, leaflets and other important materials. 

We have launched a raffle to build a campaign war chest to end the two-thirds rule, oppose contract givebacks, help members run for Convention delegate, and help elect the OZ-Teamsters United slate.

There are three ways you can help right now:

1) Sign Up to be a petition drive volunteer.

2) Order raffle tickets or donate to the TDU Election Fund

3) Join TDU. Your membership dues will help Teamsters win new leadership and a new direction in our union.

Petition drive materials are available on the OZ-Teamsters United website

Only current dues-paying Teamsters can donate to TDU Teamster Election Fund. Retirees and others can donate to the Education and Legal Defense Fund (TRF).
