Enter the Contest: Give Convoy Dispatch A New Name

After 30 years, Convoy Dispatch is getting a new name.

Help decide what it will be.

Thousands of Teamster members know Convoy is the most reliable source of information about our union. That same information will continue—under a new name to be nominated by Convoy readers and chosen by TDU members.

TDU started out largely as an organization of truck drivers. Today we’ve expanded to cover every field in the union. TDU’s newspaper needs a new name that reflects our entire union. Click here to read how Convoy Dispatch got its name.

At their last meeting, TDU’s International Steering Committee voted unanimously to change the name. Now we’re asking concerned Teamsters like you to help decide what it will be.

The winning entry will be picked at the 2009 TDU Convention, Nov. 6-8 at the Cleveland Airport Sheraton. The winning entry will be voted on by the ISC, then go to the TDU Convention for a final vote.

The winner will receive a TDU jacket and a three-year TDU membership, which includes a subscription to our newspaper.
