Hope for Our Union's Future
“The members of Local 743 are turning our union around. It’s a big job and it won’t happen overnight. We’ve got to replace apathy with hope that by working together we can make things better.
“I found renewed hope last year at the TDU Convention. That’s where you go if you want to turn our union around. We have a lot of new people getting involved in our union, and we’ll be bringing them to the Convention this October.”
Larry S. Davis
Local 743 Vice President

Feeling Isolated? You're Not Alone
“I feel like I’ve been taking on UPS on my own for a long time-and I felt all alone fighting my own battles.
“Last year I went to my first TDU convention, and I absolutely loved it. I saw that I’m not alone—everybody was coming together with a common cause.
“When I came home I told the guys they have to come this year. See you in Cleveland.”
Kathy DeBorde

Local 957, Dayton, Ohio
