Help Build a Teamster Army for Change

Teamsters are coming from across the country on Nov. 5-7 to Chicago to help build the campaign army to elect new leadership for our union.

I’ll Be There

“The 2011 Teamster election will change the course of our union.

“Teamsters across the country will meet in Chicago at the TDU Convention to make plans to vote Hoffa out and rebuild our union’s power.

“I’ll be there and you should too—to build a Teamster army for change.”

Tom Leedham, Secretary-Treasurer Local 206, Oregon


We’re Running for Delegate

“We’re running a team of reform-minded stewards and activists for convention delegate—to give the members of Local 174 a choice.

“They can vote for people who will just be a rubber-stamp for Hoffa, or they can send working Teamsters who will be an independent voice for the members.

“I’ll be at the TDU Convention to talk about how we can win.”

Mike Waine, Allied Waste Local 174, Seattle


I’m Joining the Campaign Army

“I’m joining the campaign army to elect strong, reform leadership for our union.

“The TDU Convention is where we’ll get organized and make plans to make it happen.

“I’ll be there—you should too!”

Michael Savwoir, UPS Local 41, Kansas City

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.
