Rebuilding Teamster Power in Freight
“Let’s use this crisis as an opportunity to fight for what we deserve. It’s time to stop belly aching and get organized. Call TDU and set up a meeting in your area. That’s what I plan to do.”
Frank Rogers, Yellow, Local 41, Kansas City

Concerned About the Future? Do Something About It
