"Last year's TDU Convention was my first and it was a great experience. I met Teamsters from around the country but the best part was meeting up with freight Teamsters.
"Times have been tough but when you know there are other committed brothers and sisters to take up the fight, it makes all the difference. I'll be in Chicago to recharge and make plans for the coming year."
Mike Zajac, YRC

"I'll be at the TDU Convention to meet with UPS Teamsters from across the country. The workshops at the convention arm you with tools for handling grievances. It's the place to be if you believe in standing up to UPS. We are proud be hosting here in Chicago."
