TDU members will vote on endorsing candidates for International Union office at the TDU Convention in Chicago, November 1-3. With the 2021 election for General President set to begin, Sean O達rien will outline his vision and action plans for our union.

The election for International Union officers begins next June when leaders petition for accreditation as candidates. An Election Supervisor will be appointed and Election Rules issued in early 2020.

Hoffa is not expected to seek re-election. A lame duck, Hoffa has subcontracted day-to-day leadership of the union to appointed staff Todd Thompson and Christy Bailey. The leadership vacuum has set off a scramble for who will be his successor.

O達rien, who leads Teamsters Local 25 in Boston, is the only declared candidate for Teamster General President. Last year, O達rien and Fred Zuckerman announced they would join forces with O達rien leading the 2021 Teamsters United ticket for International Union office.

Multiple contenders are maneuvering to take over as head of the Hoffa-Hall slate. General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall and Carhaul Division Director Kevin Moore have both indicated they are running for the office.

Rome Aloise has made rumblings about running even though he is currently serving a two-year suspension from Teamster leadership positions for employer payoffs and corruption.
