Are You Giving Your Fair Share?

August 20, 2010: Do you get useful and reliable information from this website about our union? Do you ever wonder how we do it?

We are supported by concerned Teamsters, like you. You are our number one source of support, including financial support.

Teamsters donate to Teamsters for a Democratic Union every day – in large and small amounts. If you think our union needs this information source and a watchdog organization, please don’t be a “dues cheater,” – pitch in and help us grow stronger. You can do quickly right here and your identity is kept confidential.


“I’ve learned everything about being a union activist from TDU. TDU shows us that real power comes from an informed membership.

“This is a serious time for our union and we need to step it up. That’s why I dug deep to give a donation even though we’re working under a 15 percent pay cut. We need more of you to donate too.”

Mike Schaffer, YRC Local 769, Miami


“I wanted to make a donation because I want to help support the TDU cause. I think the information and advice TDU provides to the members is very valuable.

“That’s why I’m donating $200 a year in small monthly payments."

Scott DiBona, UPS Local 804, New York
