Be sure to have several clipboards, petitions, and pens. A simple card table will help for holding supplies and increases visibility. It's always best to work with at least one partner. That focused effort helps us get Teamster names and numbers so we can get news on the contract out quickly. And standing at the gates or parking lot, shows management that members are mobilizing to win real improvements to the contract."

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.
