Teamsters Making a Difference

Our union can protect us in tough times. But not when our leaders are out of touch with the problems members face.

TDU brings working Teamsters together to protect our contracts and benefits and move our union in a new direction.

804 Members United
“Our union leadership is not leading the members in the right direction. I got involved to try to make some positive change.

“We’re building a movement in my local called 804 Members United. Our motto is building a stronger Local 804 by informing and uniting the members.

“And that’s exactly what we’re doing.
“We recently held an Education Conference to share strategies for enforcing our contract and protecting members from harassment and unfair discipline.

“This is the kind of thing our local should be doing—but they’re not.

“So members are stepping up, asking questions and getting involved. It’s time for a change and we’re working together to make it happen.”
Larry McIver, UPS, Local 804 Shop Steward, New York

Spreading the Word with Convoy
“I’ve been going to freight and UPS facilities all across western North Carolina to distribute Convoy and let members know that we can make our union leaders work for us again.

“More and more members here want to get rid of Hoffa and they’re ready to do something about it. We have a voice thanks to TDU.

“Do you want to get rid of Hoffa? Now’s the time to get started. Join TDU and start spreading the word today.”
Jerry Fisher, Roadway, Retired, Local 61, North Carolina

Working Together
“The Big Three are in deep trouble and carhaulers are paying the price. It’s times like these that we need strong leadership at the top of our union—but we’re not getting it.

“No wonder we see so much apathy and hopelessness in our union. But when members come together, we can make a difference.

“We’re holding a TDU meeting in May so that carhaulers can come together and talk about what we can do to get our union back in shape. Together we can turn our union around.”
Tim Krueger, Allied, Local 89, Bowling Green, Ky.

Teamster Officers Salary Report

Every year TDU publishes a nonpartisan report on the salaries of Teamster officials and lets members decide who is working hard to earn it—and who may not be. You can download the list here.

How Teamster Salaries Dramatically Changed—and Why

Top Teamster officials once paid themselves nearly $2 million a year in today’s dollars. TDU, the right to vote, and leaders who put members first have brought salaries in line with the rest of the labor movement.
