On the Ballot & Ready to Win!

[Reprinted from Teamsters United]

Fred Zuckerman and the Teamsters United slate were successfully nominated in balloting by delegates at the Teamster Convention. The future of our union is in the members’ hands. A ballot will be mailed to every Teamster this October.

Hoffa and Ken Hall tried to prevent an election by blocking Teamsters United candidates from getting on the ballot. They failed.

Fred Zuckerman and a slate of twenty other Teamsters United candidates will appear on the ballot in every Teamster region.

The Hoffa forces successfully blocked the nomination of our candidates for Western Region Vice President and Teamsters United did not run in Teamsters Canada so those positions are elected by acclimation.

Teamsters United supporters are launching a nationwide Teamster-to-Teamster outreach campaign to inform members about the election and turn out the vote. It will take 175,000 votes to win this fall.

“If you want Teamster power, we need more than your vote. We need your voice. Get involved in this campaign,” said General President candidate Fred Zuckerman.  “Turn out the vote and we will win a new day for our union and a new day for the labor movement.”

Historic Victories Within Reach This Week

TDU members have organized for decades to completely end the Two-Thirds Rule and increase rank-and-file power in contract negotiations. This week, those changes will become a reality, thanks to united action by the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United coalition.  

The Constitution Committee voted today to recommend that the IBT Convention vote to eliminate the Two-Thirds Rule, require rank-and-file members on all contract negotiating committees, and ban the International from imposing contract supplements and riders that are rejected by the members.

The Showdown over Teamster Rights

The IBT Convention starts this coming Tuesday, June 22, and the fight is on to win major changes to our Teamster Constitution.
