Looking Ahead To a Stronger Union

Defending Our Rights

“I was amazed at the support and solidarity from my fellow Teamsters at my first TDU Convention.

“Back in New York, we’re working with our brothers at Elmhurst Dairy to fight illegal layoffs and defend their union rights. We’re building a network to educate more members, distribute Teamster Voice, and spread the TDU message in the local.”

Stephen Mohan, Tuscan Beyer Farms, Local 584, New York


Building Teamster Unity

“What I saw at the TDU Convention was a great demonstration of unity and strength, two ingredients of real unionism.

“The only way we’re going to survive is if we’re more united to take on the employers. I’m sharing the info I learned with members on my dock and bringing more members with me to next year’s Convention.”

Tyrone Turner, YRC, Local 667, Memphis


Get the Facts

“TDU doesn’t hide the facts. You get the straight story, and expert help from Teamster leaders, labor educators and the best labor attorneys around.

“In Spokane, we’re running to take back our local and use TDU resources to empower and educate more members.”

Derick Apatang, UPS, Local 690, Spokane
