November 13, 2009: Teamster members and local officers came from across the country to learn from each other and make plans to change the direction of our union, at the 34th annual TDU Convention.
July 21, 2009: The year was 1976. The Teamster president was Frank Fitzsimmons, who enjoyed golfing with President Nixon and trucking employers.
After 30 years, Convoy Dispatch is getting a new name.
Help decide what it will be.
July 21, 2009: Teamsters have a right to discuss union issues and exchange union-related literature at work.
TDU is at work defending and expanding that right.
Union action is needed to defend our contracts, jobs and pensions. Hoffa can’t and won’t deliver. It’s time to work together for change.
June 03, 2009: Across the country, Teamsters are holding TDU meetings, setting up educational workshops, and getting out Convoy.
May 15, 2009: This May TDU is bringing Teamsters together for educational events on winning grievances, bargaining better contracts, and improving our union.
Good Teamster jobs on the line. Pension and benefit cuts. And a Teamster leadership that’s asleep at the wheel. Our union needs TDU more than ever.
Our union can protect us in tough times. But not when our leaders are out of touch with the problems members face.
