Monday's the Day

A Letter from John Palmer—With your support, Teamsters United won the vote in the U.S. against Hoffa-Hall and elected six International Union Vice Presidents. We will take the oath of office this Monday, March 20.

As your International Vice president, I’ll do everything in my power to help members fight for stronger contracts, take on Hoffa-Hall corruption, and defend our pensions and benefits.

As your International Union Vice President, I will have your back. I’m asking you to have my back too.

I am honored to serve my Teamster brothers and sisters, not just as an International Union Vice President—but as an elected member of the TDU Steering Committee.

TDU mobilizes Teamsters to fight concessions, take on employers and organize for change in our union. TDU is where members get the tools they need to build solidarity, involve the uninvolved, and build union power.

To succeed as a Teamster Vice President, I need a strong rank-and-file movement at my back.

That’s why I’m celebrating my swearing-in by asking you to support TDU today.

This is a cause worth trucking for. On Monday, we’ll make history—and on Tuesday we’ll get to work because we’ve got a lot of change still to make.

In solidarity,
