TDU’s Black Caucus Launches Webpage

April 8, 2008: The Black Caucus of Teamsters for a Democratic Union has launched a webpage to share and highlight the work of African American Teamsters to build a strong union.

TDU’s Black Caucus is a network of Black Teamsters from across our union who work together and share strategies for building a union that fights for all of our members.

“It’s time for a union leadership that looks like our union’s membership,” said Willie Hardy, a member of TDU’s International Steering Committee from Memphis, Tenn. “TDU’s Black Caucus is a place for African American Teamsters to talk about how we can get that done.”

If you want to help build a stronger union, your help is needed.
