TDU has helped organized ground-breaking Vote No campaigns against contract givebacks in national contracts covering more than 300,000 workers. UPS workers voted to reject a concessionary contract after a year-long campaign by TDU activists. After Hoffa used a constitutional loophole to ratify the unpopular deal, TDU activists are turning their focus from “Vote No” to “Vote them Out.”
Vote No activists were recently elected to lead Dallas Local 767, the biggest local of UPS Teamsters in the South, and New York Local 804, the largest local of UPS Teamsters in the East.
In 2019, TDU will target local union races in cities where Vote No activists have joined our movement. TDU’s Future Reform Officers Initiative is helping activists run for local union office and build model reform locals after they win.
