Hoffa’s Surrender

April 2, 2010: Teamsters who believe in protecting our contracts and benefits are coming together for change.

If it seems like contract enforcement has never been weaker, you’re not imagining things.

The Hoffa administration has given up on standing up to the employers until the recession is over—at least.

Don’t take our word for it. International Union officials say so themselves.

Hoffa’s point man at UPS, Ken Hall, recently announced that “2009 was not the right time” to enforce the contract because of the economy.

That goes a long way toward explaining our union’s surrender at UPS, YRC, ABF, UPS Freight, carhaul and many other employers.

Hoffa Waves
The White Flag

• Top Teamster at UPS says it's the "WRONG TIME" to enforce the contract

• While Teamsters Take Concessions, Hoffa takes a pay hike

• Hoffa covers for VP pal caught in Philly nepotism scandal

It’s not easy to make gains in a recession. But that doesn’t mean we have to give up the store.

Hoffa’s only answer to corporate America is go-along, get along. That’s not a strategy. It’s surrender.

Teamster members who believe in protecting our contracts, jobs and benefits are coming together for change.
