Ballots will be mailed in just 85 days!  Now’s the time to plan ahead for how you can help get out the vote, including taking time off.

Peak voting time will begin around October 8 when ballots start arriving and run into November.

Teamsters United campaign volunteers will be meeting at the TDU Convention in Chicago to coordinate plans to get out the vote. Many Teamsters United slate members will be there, including General President candidate Fred Zuckerman.

The ballot mail date is perfectly timed with the TDU Convention which runs September 30 to October 2.

Teamsters who ran for delegate or alternate delegate, or who attended the Teamster Convention as a guest, are eligible for a discount on their TDU Convention registration.

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.
