Stand Up For a Union That Will Stand Up for Us

Union action is needed to defend our contracts, jobs and pensions. Hoffa can’t and won’t deliver. It’s time to work together for change.

The economic crisis is putting the squeeze on working Teamsters in every industry and local.

At UPS, management is using new technology to harass and discipline drivers in a production push.

Freight and carhaul Teamsters have seen their job security go up in smoke. Teamsters in many industries face layoffs and concessions. Our pension funds are threatening a new round of benefit cuts.

Members don’t expect our union to have all the answers to an economic crisis. But we deserve information on where we stand and a plan of action for defending our jobs, our contracts, our benefits, and our future. We’re not getting that from our International Union.

It was never realistic to expect Hoffa to be his father. Times have changed and we can’t look to the past. The bigger problem is that Hoffa is providing no leadership today and no plan for the future.

Teamsters for a Democratic Union brings Teamsters together to work for change. We’re Teamsters educating Teamsters—sharing information we’re not getting from our union. We’re Teamsters uniting Teamsters—working together to defend our contracts, our pensions, and our rights.

We’re Teamsters coming together to work for new leadership and a new direction.

We can make it happen. Winning change won’t take everyone, but no one can do it alone. It takes a critical mass of members who will step forward and work to make it happen.

Our union’s crisis is also an opportunity for a new direction. Be a part of it. Join TDU today.
