    Hoffa Takes Aim at Teamster Democracy | Teamsters for a Democratic Union
    TDU said it all sister, I myself stay away from TDU site.
    I use to take classes at the labor ctr and at lunch, I would hear this TDU guy rambling negative issues about our Teamsters that just ruined my lunch, I wouldn't always believe TDU site.

    Right you are brother. Don't take it as gospel as they have been wrong before and in some cases do more harm than good. That bring said, I am glad they are watching. That's coming from a proud Sandy Pope supporter.

    Truth can come from either side (though it doesn't mean it will). At present, though, I'm inclined to believe the TDU about things concerning Hoffa. There's just been too much going on that has not been in the interests of the rank-and-file membership to believe the 'official' Teamster lines concerning Jimmy P.

    Done but disagree with this part of story:
    "Organized crime hand-picked Jackie Presser as head of the Teamsters in 1983.
    :P
    His predecessor, Roy Williams, testified that he never made important decisions as Teamster president without taking into account what organized crime families wanted. Both of them were indicted for racketeering; Williams was convicted, Presser passed away before facing trial.
    :P
    Under the old system, officers who went along with mob rule and givebacks moved up the ladder. Officers who objected were put on the sidelines.The Hoffa administration still rewards yes-men and punishes dissenters. Without elections, the situation would be a lot worse."

    I read a book on Presser a long time ago and it said he was CIA.
    That's the organized criminals.
    The govt.
    I think they play roles in what goes on.
    Corrupt govt serving big bucks world banks.
