After A Fair Vote, A Strong Contract?

I want to thank TDU for all the effort that went into ensuring that every ballot in the carhaul contract vote was accurately counted.

The Western Supplement and the Master Contract were overwhelmingly voted down by Teamsters here in the Bay Area.

We’ve been guaranteed a fair vote—now we need to get to work to make sure we get a strong contract.

Time to Take a Hard Look

Central States has lost $3 billion of the $6.1 billion they got from UPS.

I’d really like to know what happened to all that money.

It was Hoffa’s plan to turn over our pensions and if it’s on anyone’s shoulders, it’s his. I know that my local didn’t vote for this contract, and I’m proud of that.

It’s time to take a hard look at what we’ve done to our contract and our union power.

Now that I’m retired, I’m wondering what’ll happen to me. It doesn’t look good down the road, and I hope that we, the members, can do something about it.
