As the ballots were tallied this week, we shocked the employers and the Hoffa-Hall slate and won the majority of the vote from Teamsters in the United States. Hoffa-Hall overtook our lead when the Teamsters Canada ballots were counted.

Tomorrow, the Election Supervisorís office will start to resolve the ballots that were challenged because of eligibility issues.

The International Union vote count is nearing a close. The fight for our future is just beginning.

We launched the Teamsters United coalition to win new leadership and a new direction for our union.

First and foremost, I want to thank the thousands of Teamsters across North America who joined this cause. You are true Teamsters and warriors for the working class.
