At every election, we discuss this and Hoffa continues to hold the reigns. We see a lot of organizing and new members but very few are actually freight drivers. Isn't it time for a change?

The Teamsters Union is at a crossroads. Will members take the wheel and steer our union in a new direction?

The Hoffa-Hall administration has lost the confidence of the membership. Contract negotiations should be about what we can unite and fight for as a union. But under Hoffa-Hall, the questions at contract time are will the members Vote No and will Hoffa-Hall impose givebacks anyway.

No wonder 70 percent of UPS, freight, carhaul, and UPS Freight members voted against Hoffa-Hall in the last Teamster election; in fact, every national unit voted for change and Teamsters United.

In local unions, members are going from Vote No to voting out officers who front for Hoffa-Hall. Members in Charlotte Local 71 are the latest local to elect reform leaders. TDU activist Willie Ford and his Rebuild 71 slate defeated the incumbent officials by nearly a 3 to 1 margin.

“We’re going to rebuild our union the same way we won this election: by informing and uniting the membership,” Ford said.

With the 2020-21 International Union election on the horizon, this opportunity is available to every Teamster. Are you ready to take up the challenge?

Members in other unions are on the move. More workers have participated in winning strikes since 2018 than any time in the last 45 years.
