    Default Hoffa Takes Aim at Teamster Democracy

    I don't know what to think of this. I am just passing it on to you.
    June 13, 2014: The Hoffa-Hall administration wants to end your Right to Vote for Teamster President and other International officers.

    The IBT has made a submission to Judge Loretta Preska to end the 1989 Consent Order, a court-approved agreement signed by the IBT, which guarantees all Teamsters the right to vote for IBT officers, with an impartial election supervisor, and fair rules.

    I think if you look closely there's beads of sweat starting to build on Juniors brow,dark circles slowly appearing from late nights of worry,could it be that the name he rode in on doesn't hold weight anymore,all those folks much like ourselves might be getting just a wee bit tired of the same old same old,sold out freight,car haulers,tankers and most recently buster brown,could it be all those fresh faces he's brought into the fold of late aren't enough to insure a victory next time around?,don't know about the rest of you but I certainly hope this to be the case,better dust off that law degree junior and polish up the résumé,were looking for a new sheriff in town and its not you.

    P.S I signed the petition...

    I think he started that when he got away with taking the white paper contracts from the Chicago locals.. Now he wants to be a dictator ... Time for the revolution..

    I signed as well, I urge you all to sign. Hoffa and Hall are cowards who know if they can't pull this stunt off, they will most likely lose the next election.

    He already proved that with UPS Contract under Article 12 of the IBT Constitution. The right for union delegates to override a NO vote. I guess no one was paying any attention.

    On the contrary, I think we were all paying attention!

    I don't know about that. There were a hell of a lot of red Hoffa vests at the last convention who shouted down and intimidated anyone who spoke out against his highness.

    I believe your right on one part,many of the new breed or Hoffa Junoir Teamsters pay little or no attention to the politics of "Our" Union. The Old School Teamsters that built this Union are dwindling,by design they are culling us out,filling our ranks with the uninformed and uncaring,members of late are not by definition "Teamsters" or the rank and file Jimmy envisioned,they are merely dues members that fill the coffers and pay the bloated salaries of our officials,did we expect any different from a "Corporate Lawyer" with an Iconic Name.
