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,

Historic Victories Within Reach This Week

TDU members have organized for decades to completely end the Two-Thirds Rule and increase rank-and-file power in contract negotiations. This week, those changes will become a reality, thanks to united action by the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United coalition.  

The Constitution Committee voted today to recommend that the IBT Convention vote to eliminate the Two-Thirds Rule, require rank-and-file members on all contract negotiating committees, and ban the International from imposing contract supplements and riders that are rejected by the members.

The Showdown over Teamster Rights

The IBT Convention starts this coming Tuesday, June 22, and the fight is on to win major changes to our Teamster Constitution.
