Teamster members elected a full General Executive Board last November. Now Hoffa refuses to hold regular meetings claiming that “past practice” dictates that he’s not required to hold GEB meetings. This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.

When International Vice President John Palmer raised the issue and the direct violation of the Constitution, Hoffa said it was “past practice” not to hold meetings. Say what?

This is a blatant violation of the Teamster Constitution and of union democracy.
