    For 15 years they have done nothing to defend our union or to organize in freight, or in carhaul, or other trucking fields. They donít have a strategy and donít understand Teamster power. They have not organized; they have not defended the national master contracts or the membersí pensions.

Only 2664 members in 2012 down from 4863 in 2002. What has the Hoffa administration done to increase membership in the one time heart of Teamster country.?

    Union Facts | Teamsters, Local 299 | Profile, Membership, Leaders, Political Operations, etc.

    Following his re-election as president in 1961, Hoffa worked to expand the union. In 1964, he succeeded in bringing virtually all over-the-road truck drivers in North America under a single national master-freight agreement, in what may have been his finest achievement in a lifetime of union activity
    That was James R. Hoffa. And now James P. Hoffa has destroyed his father's "finest achievement" the NMFA. I wonder what will be his legacy?

    I'm not happy with what's gone on either. But if it is old school were looking for than guys are gonna have to put more of their time in also. I think we need leadership from top to bottom which mandates more effort from us. Too many guys want but don't do anything but expect. And the things expected are worth more than the $52/month they're paying.


    Change in leadership?
    Yes.



    But mandated time requirements for organizing, letter writing, protesting, taking part in tea.esters take action emails....also MUST take place for us to have any progress. We are not shareholder bosses. We need to act also. I doubt the union was built that way.

    1st off if you are retired 12 years then you were already gone when Hoffa sold us out at Red Star in 2004. When he threw the NMFA Teamsters under the bus by giving UPSF/Overnite a stand alone contract in 2006. By not putting then into out MEPFs.

    2nd your the only one bad mouthing anything when you called TDU b/s on the no confidence petition. What part of the list of charges in the no confidence petition do you think is not factual?

    3rd you may have seen a million guys but not all like me. I've walked my share of picket lines in my 41 years as a Teamster. Most of the time it was without the BAs even being there. I don't recall them ever walking the line at night.

    IMO you are either unaware of the fact that Hoffa & co have turned their backs on freight. Or you have your head in the sand believing only in the Hoffa name.

    Now why don't you answer the question as to why you think the petition is b/s? Why do you think he has done a good job?
