    Default How We'll Beat Hoffa

    It's time!

    Hoffa has won re-election three times, including the 2011 election with 60 percent of the vote. But the key indicators point to a different outcome this time. Here’s why Hoffa will be beat in 2016.
    In the last IBT election, two opposition candidates ran against Hoffa, splitting the vote.

    This time, opposition candidates have built a united coalition that’s building momentum and broad support. Teamsters United has been endorsed by everyone from Fred Gegare, the former IBT Vice President that ran against Hoffa last time, to Teamsters for a Democratic Union.

    Any splits this time will be on Hoffa’s side. The Hoffa Slate has already lost Al Mixon, an International Vice President At-Large and the head of the Teamsters National Black Caucus.

    Teamsters United is more than a slate; it’s a movement. Campaign rallies and organizing meetings are drawing crowds. Teamsters are registering as volunteers and building local campaign committees.

    The only way Hoffa will be beat will be by EDUCATING the ones that don't have a clue.. Those that do not even return the postage paid envelopes.. Those that don't think there is a difference between Hoffa SR and Hoffa jr.. Hell,half of the UPS parcel drivers don't give a crap who is leading the union.. And that alone is a whole lot of votes.. Education is where it is.. School bus drivers probably think they don't even count.. The more wrong doing by Hoffa and company has to be somehow gotten into the main stream news .. 75,000 disgruntled freight drivers is not gonna get it done..TDU is leading the charge on this and I see they are getting more and more backers.. Cant have the vote split by having extra candidates running.. TDU has to come out and endorse one.. and only one..

    Well the Teamsters United meeting I went to in East Providence, RI last Saturday had a TDU official there (who's name escapes me right now) who said his piece as well as the candidates, Sylvester/Zuckerman, so I think it's safe to say TDU has endorsed these two men. By the way, for all you NY, NJ metro area guys there is a Teamster United meeting in Brooklyn, NY June 12th and Ken Paff the head of TDU will be there as well! So if you can go, GO!
