    Default Members Voting Rights

    Seem Hoffa and his right hand men think that the low voter turn out warrants this.

    Default Election over, Hoffa takes aim at your right to vote

    Imagine that?

    Election Over, Hoffa Takes Aim at Your Right to Vote
    International Vice President Dan Kane gave a speech recently to Joint Council 16 in New York, saying it’s time to take away members’ Right to Vote and return to choosing presidents at Teamster Conventions.

    Low turnouts are a problem in our democracy all across North America. The vast majority of U.S. Congressional incumbents win.

    But if anyone tried to take away your right to vote for mayor, governor, or Congress, you would fight back. And that is what Teamsters must do now.

    Its not a good idea to take anyones right to vote away! But desertification?....seems a little severe bro! Good luck to you if you do that. I don't think the line will be too long.

    It get's frustrating,

    The one counter point to the Teamsters leadership being corrupt is that the membership has the power to vote for it's leadership using the democratic voting process,...

    If Hoffa is successful with striping us of our right to vote I think it will make the organizing process even more difficult,...

    I'll be honest here, It is getting tough to sell a product that I am starting to lose faith in,.....
