    Default Ballots

    Here in Dayton, I know for a fact the 3 ballots have been sent out to 2 teamsters that resigned over 3 years ago, and the other one sent out to a teamster that resigned just a few months ago.

    How many ballots are being mailed out to teamsters that have resigned or retired? These should not count. And is there a checks and balance system in place with this government agency counting the votes in VA?

    by the way 2 of the 3 mailed a NO back, and the other one said he trashed it

    3? We had ballots sent to guys retired for 8 years. One guy died last year, wife got the ballot. I didn't tell them how to vote, but informed each one I talked to that we were against the proposal, and each got the picture.

    If there were ever any reason to contest the YES vote, part and parcel, here it is.

    I think this will be voted down. But if it isn't we will have a good platform on which to protest it.

    I do believe that the envelope that contains your envelope with the ballot in it is checked against the list of member in good standing. If there was any corruption TDU would get it, and go after Jimmy Hoffa in a heart beat. It then would be shouted to the top of the high Heavens on tdu.org. I believe the proof is in TDU not saying that there was corruption in any voting between the members.

    If corruption was taking place and it was corruption looking for a yes vote, sending ballots out to people who have left the company would probably be a bad move.
