From Teamsters looking to get the basics on member-to-member organizing to retirees strategizing the next steps to defend pensions, the TDU Convention has the best workshops and member education programs for Teamsters across the board, from every industry and all levels of experience.

Labor educators, expert attorneys, rank-and-file organizers and reform movement leaders will be there leading sessions on everything from union rights on the job to shop-floor organizing tactics and campaign strategy.

And this year will be extra special. TDU is a proud part of the Teamsters United coalition organizing to kick-out Hoffa-Hall and elect Fred Zuckerman the next IBT General President.

Ballots to elect our next International leadership will mail out on Oct. 6, just days after the TDU Convention in Chicago.

This year's Convention is timed perfectly to host a national Get-Out-the-Vote organizing push with Fred Zuckerman, Teamsters United slate members and supporters.

Click here to let us know you want to attend and a TDU Organizer will follow up with you. Or call TDU at 313-842-2600 to register over the phone, get more info, or get help booking your travel. We're happy to help.

Convention registration is $230 for three days, including meals and programs. Hotel rooms are $105/night.

Register by September 1 and save $25 off your registration cost. If you ran for delegate, you can knock off an additional $25 from your registration.
