Video: Reform History at Teamster Conventions

TDU members and other reform Teamsters have taken the issues to Teamster Conventions for nearly 40 years – and won major gains for all Teamster members. This ten-minute video shows reformers speaking “truth to power” from 1981 through 2006 (when the video was produced).  

Included is footage from ABC “Nightline”, the historic 1991 IBT Conventions, and how members won the Right to Vote for officers and for delegates.

With the 2016 IBT Convention upcoming, Teamsters have a chance to make a lot more history. This historic video gives you the background to understand how Teamsters have won democratic gains and protected them from those who would strip them away.
