    Default Mark Wahlberg's Teamsters Reality Show In Pre-Production

    So I am super curious what you Teamsters think of this?

    In Boston, preproduction is underway on the pilot of a reality show about the The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, a a union representing mostly blue-collar transportation and factory workers that's likely best-known for the infamous disappearance of its president, Hoffa, nearly 40 years ago.
    "
    There’s some risk that previous Hollywood conceptions of blue-collar Boston will get all moshed together in ways that will not necessarily enhance labor’s image, increase public understanding of what unions do, or even boost Brother O’Brien’s upward mobility in the IBT," writes lawyer and reporter Steve Early, who lives in Boston and has actively supported the Teamsters, in In These Times, a non-profit progressive newsmagazine.

    I doubt that a reality show set in Boston will be of much help to our Teamster image

    I hope he mentions in the show how good the IBT is for workers like seniority rights, vacation, personal, sick time, health and welfare, and the right for a grievances procedure.

    I hope there are lots of positives in it. Local 25 is a pretty strong local. From what I hear O'Brien has done a great job there.

    I had the privilege of meeting O'Brian in Vegas at the convention. I gotta say I was impressed with the guy. He has a very strong local and the members stick together because they know they have strong leadership. I'm looking forward to seeing the show.
