2016 "Dump Hoffa Slate" or "Anybody but Hoffa Slate!"

    With the Teamster election just over a year away and the beginning of the first delegate elections just months away it's very important to organize and find a good and appealing name for those of you intending to run a delegate slate.

    The majority of members do not know what a delegate election is; or for what its for. The incumbents also always use the term "experience" to get their members to vote for them. With that being said its always very difficult for reformers to win.

    Five years ago there was two slates that named themselves"The Dump Hoffa Slate" and a third one "Anybody but Hoffa Slate." All three slates succeeded in defeating the incumbent officers. Like I said, people might be reluctant to vote for someone they don't know as opposed to the "experience" slate, but members are now more than ever ready to vote against Hoffa.

    So if any of you intend to run a delegate slate at your local in support of the Teamsters United Slate...adopting one of these names for your slate would be more appealing and and the possibilities of defeating the hofficers in your local would increase.

    People, posting pictures on Facebook threatening the General President....

    Are beyond ignorant. (since they couldn't even keep themselves in a job)

    If you don't like someone, man up and throw your hat (and money) in the ring.


    In this day and age of social media....

    Too many people talk smack.

    They certainly wouldn't speak their thoughts to someones face.



    -Bug-



    That sounds like a rant.... but it's the truth.

    (and the person that posted this pic on Facebook, I am talking to you)

    Where did you rip that from? I've looked at a couple of those Facebook pages and I can't figure out why labor managers aren't lining these guys and girls up outside the office. Ups must be hurting for people because I've seen a lot on there with names attached that could have people on the outside looking in real quick.

    I posted the throw your hat in the ring comment last week and someone who's picture is on the TDU website said that argument is stale. I even offered to put my name on their petition for signatures if they pulled their bb's out.
    It really amazes me how they have big balls on the Internet to make comments, threats but don't have the nerve to pony up.

    It reminds me of the person who says a supervisor is working, they are being harassed, their BA isn't doing his job but they won't file a grievance or run for office because they can't do the job.

    You should try to win in your local first.

    Oh wait, you did on a few occasions and it didn't work out for you.

    Stale :-)

    Hoffa, Hoffa, boo whoo for the Hoffa :hesaidsmiley:

    So you acknowledge that I have and do "throw my hat in the ring"???, while you hide behind your anonymity.
    First time I ran as an "eleventh hour" part time trustee addition to a slate, the last time for the Vice President position in my local (and I almost won).
    In the end it's not for everybody, and obviously, everybody couldn't and shouldn't run for union office.

    What's stale is your tactics in trying to squelch those who are voicing their opinions by emasculating them with phrases like "throw your hat in the ring", "son", "boy", etc., as well as insisting for proof of contrary statements, while representing yourself as beyond refute in your own unsubstantiated statements.
    In the end, the only qualification for someone to voice an opinion on this subject is that they be a dues paying member or retiree of our union.
    One day you and your bell ringers might realize that these tactics work in reverse with many and only serve to fan the flames of change.

    So, by all means, keep it up.
