Teamsters Turn Out For Education and Building TDU

October 17, 2013: More than 100 members from industries across New York City and beyond came out for a day of workshops and strategic planning.

The Building Teamster Power Conference on September 15 was the second day-long conference organized by the NY-NJ TDU Chapter this year. It brought together UPS members, bus workers, public sector workers, commercial movers, grocery and freight Teamsters. Workshops focused on getting members involved, the UPS contract, legal rights, and grievance handling.

The conference was used to reach out to members beyond New York City and build TDU regionally. Members attended from New Jersey, Long Island, even from Texas. More than 20 members joined TDU.

"The workshop on getting members involved is a good hands-on training and really drills home that to be a good organizer, you have to be a good listener.

"We had a great turnout and the conference did a lot to build our TDU Chapter."

Bill O'Bayley, White Rose Foods, Local 805, New York
