    Default Hoffa To Members: A New Day For Our Great Union

    “Today, the Teamsters Union and the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York filed an application with Chief Judge Loretta Preska requesting that she approve an agreement to end decades of government oversight over the Teamsters Union. We anticipate that she will approve the agreement.

    “This is a historic day for our Teamsters. After decades of hard work and millions of dollars spent, we can finally say that corrupt elements have been driven from the Teamsters and that the government oversight can come to an end.

    “In 1989, the Teamsters Union settled a court case brought by the U.S. government by agreeing to a consent decree. The purpose of the consent decree was to remove corrupt influences from the Teamsters by establishing direct elections of International officers and establishing an independent disciplinary process for rooting out corrupt elements in our Union.

    Judge Approves Agreement Ending Government Oversight Of Teamsters Union
    (WASHINGTON) – Today, Chief Judge Loretta Preska of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York approved an agreement that ends more than 25 years of government oversight of the Teamsters Union.

    The agreement, reached last month between the United States of America and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, dismisses the lawsuit brought by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, which led to a consent decree that the Teamsters Union has operated under since 1989.

    The consent decree is replaced with a final order, in which the government’s continued involvement in the internal affairs of the Teamsters Union will be phased out over a five-year transition period which commences immediately and ends in 2020.

This is only the first step!) I was discussing this very topic with some fellow on here, who was totally brainwashed and gushing for the union that was going to take care of him for the rest of his life. He said I was uninformed and naive and it was MY fault that the union was stealing from me! And, as I told him about 24 months ago,

    "No, no one tells me how to vote (especially the mighty teamster's union) and not the Tea Party. I am a founding member of the Tea Party in my State and we consider it a SACRED TRUST AND RESPONSIBILITY to inform others that there is BUT LITTLE TIME to change our course. If we go off of the fiscal cliff, then what are you going to do...Riot and kill like citizens are doing in Spain and Greece? ALL OF THE MARKETS WILL FAIL! Then there will be no money (public OR private) for social security, food stamps, welfare, disability, medicare, or FOR ANY PENSION FUND ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, IN ANY AMOUNT, FOR ANYBODY! PERIOD! INCLUDING YOURS!
    No, mindlessly, robotically voting Democrat, like you're told and letting corrupt unions stick their hand into your pocket and rob you of dues AND pension benefits every month (and smile and lie to you while they're doing it) is the saddest commentary on the middle class today!
    Look at it this way, you are paying them, so they should vote how YOU tell THEM to vote! Maybe (though doubtful) it'll make more sense to you that way."

    And, they continue to steal from me and thousands of others every month! In my case, more than a thousand dollars EVERY MONTH! I took my retirement 132 months ago which comes to $132,000.00 to date! And there ARE thousands just like me!

    Anyway, sorry to bust in like this, but I was hoping to talk to that person again to see if he has changed his views at all and is willing to join with me and the others to do something about it, or is he still willing to jump right off the cliff with misguided loyalty to his union.

    So, thanks in advance "kickass" or "ABF wife" (or anyone else) if you can put me in contact with that guy again.

    This is the thread that you posted in ..Don't know if it will help or not..

    What does Mitt Romney think of unions? YouTube

    As far as the tea party goes,in the beginning it was a good thing but sadly it was hijacked by the Koch brothers and their right leaning propanger machine..
