Meet Teacher Strikers & Reformers at the TDU Convention

At the TDU Convention, you'll hear first-hand from union Teachers' activists about the key organizing lessons from the strikes and innovative ways workers are uniting to confront attacks on labor and public services.

Earlier this year, teachers across the country launched a wave of strikes, walkouts, sickouts and rallies that won big gains, galvanized members, and showed how strikes can win.

Much of the initiative and organizing of the strikes did not come from union leaderships, but from TDU-like rank-and-file networks.

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