Members Spread the Word with Convoy

Concerned Teamsters are hitting the road with the latest issue of Convoy Dispatch and getting the word out about how we can turn our union around.

“We got an overwhelmingly positive response. Members want the information you can get in Convoy.”
David Manolis, Local 391

Tens of thousands of Teamsters already read Convoy, TDU’s national newspaper, thanks to Teamster members who get bundles of the newspaper and distribute it where they work and beyond.

“Earlier this week, I went on the road to pass out Convoys to UPS and Yellow Freight Teamsters in Charlotte, and Roadway Teamsters in Kernersville,” said David Manolis, a package car driver out of Local 391 in North Carolina.

“Working Teamsters are dealing with some very serious issues right now: pensions, concessions, the change of operations in freight. But they feel left in the dark by their officers. The reaction we got was overwhelmingly positive. Members want the information you can get in Convoy.”

“I went to Yellow to pass out Convoys with another member from our Minnesota TDU Chapter,” said David Kremer, a TDU member in Local 320 in Minneapolis.

“Members were really happy to see us standing out there in 2 below weather to get them the information you can only find in Convoy.”

This year, TDU has set a goal of reaching 25 percent more Teamsters with Convoy. Can you help?
