Education is Power

Building the Pension Movement

“Our movement to defend our pensions is blossoming. We’ve had meetings from Nashville to Minneapolis, Akron to St. Louis, and many points in between. The TDU Convention is a great place for pension activists to come together and share our experience and build for the fight moving forward. Make plans to be in Cleveland.”

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.
