Make UPS Deliver Full-Time Jobs

“I was on the picket line every day in 1997 holding a sign that said ‘Part Time America Won’t Work.’ I never dreamed the company would force me back to part-time. But it’s happened to me and many other Teamsters.
“Now we’re getting involved to make UPS create every full-time job they owe us under the contract.
“We organized a meeting with a TDU organizer that got members informed and united. We’re following up by joining the national petition drive to tell Hoffa that it’s time to enforce the contract.
“Union members need to stand up, make our voices heard and take our union back.”
Sandy Gustafson, UPS
Local 767 Shop Steward, Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport


Keep Union Principles Strong

“I found out about TDU from a buddy who said he thought TDU saved the Teamsters. I just recently began to get involved in the labor movement, and I was excited to learn more about what can be done in our union.
“I joined TDU to keep the core purpose of unionism alive.”
Cory Lucas, Allied Waste
Local 50, Belleville, Ill.


Time to Get Respect on the Job

“I’m tired of management doing whatever they want to do—and getting away with it. They don’t respect our contract or our rights.
“I joined TDU because I saw other TDU members in my local who were getting together and making management show them respect. That’s what can happen when we get informed and come together.”
Jose de la Torre, BFI
Local 396, Los Angeles
