Freight Teamsters: Don't Give Up, Step Up

January 3, 2014: Millionaires like Harry Wilson are getting rich off the concessions that are destroying good union jobs.

Our union should be leading the fight, but Hoffa Jr. is no Hoffa. He has turned his back on freight, UPS freight, carhaul, and trucking Teamsters.

Complaining in the break room won’t save our pensions or our union. But rank-and-file Teamsters standing together can take back our union.

In some locals, TDU members have defeated pension cuts, elected new leadership, and won better contracts. To take back the International union, we need a united movement.

Don’t give up, step up. Join TDU today.

Teamsters before us put their lives on the line to win what we have. $40 is a small investment to stop Hoffa Jr. from throwing it all away.
