TDU: Building The Movement To Win

Hear from new members about why they joined TDU. And find out how you can help make a difference, too.


Winning with TDU

“When we were organizing to take back our local, we turned to TDU leaders and TDU’s knowledge and experience to help us understand what works and what doesn’t.

“Now we’re taking those tools to win strikes and better contracts for Local 814 members.

“Our union needs TDU. Join TDU if you want a stronger Teamsters union.”

Anthony Meyers, Globe Local 814, New York


Involving Members

“Our local tries to keep the members uninformed. I joined TDU because of the information it provides and it’s hard work to involve members in building a better union.

“I went to my first TDU Convention this year. It was a life-changing experience. I still feel the affirmation and solidarity from being around so many good Teamsters from across the country. I’m really proud I joined TDU.”

Darren Suell, UPS Local 104, Phoenix


Education for a Stronger Union

“After years of hearing too much hypocrisy from our local officials, I met some honest and real Teamsters here in L.A.–and they’re TDU members.

“I started reading Teamster Voice and went to a Southern California TDU Chapter meeting. I learned more there than I ever learned from all the dog-and-pony-show meetings of our local union.

“I went to my first TDU Convention in November and joined. If you want real information and education you can use to build a stronger union, you should join too.”

Lupe Hernandez, Ralphs Grocery Local 63, Los Angeles
