  3. I don't think there is anyone who's a Hoffa fan. He is a figurehead that we need to use as a go between with politicians. You guys take this to personal with Hoffa. You also give him to much credit.
     
  4. I give him ,full credit for the Impasse.
     
  5. You are giving him to much credit.

    If you'd dedicate the amount of time you spent bashing Hoffa to gathering good sales leads, we wouldn't need concessions

    I will say hoffa has a good pr team. Look at teamster magazine. They can make the weakest ups contract ever look like a victory

    I don't throw things at jr I can't prove, I stick to facts. He has never been a shop steward, ba, or local president. He wasn't eligible to run in 91 because he wasn't a member in good standing. He was a corporate lawyer for Kroger. He was brought in as legal council for Allen Dorfman. Once he became a paid consultant for certain locals, he rode his dads name into office. When Carey beat him in 97, he join forces with big business and his college roommate Congressman Peter Hoekstra R-Mi to railroad Carey. Carey was later acquitted of all charges

    I will say Hoffa has a great smear campaign team (TDU). Look at the "Teamster Voice". They can make any topic look like a lie.


    Where are you pigs now?

    Wolf ( tdu) can be a negative Debbie downer. Especially when the employer gets its hand on the ( teamster voice) employers love the in fighting between union members. Like it or not people get disgusted with the ibt and turn to tdu. If the old guard wants to weaken tdu, its simple get back in touch with members, make them feel included

    This union can be a great as we want it to be. The problem with entrenched multi-pension officials that are more worried about their jobs than ours. They need to serve and go back to their seniority job. Yes I said it, they should retain seniority as a working teamster, and have to go back after so many years. That way they understand the workings as an official and of the average member

    3 done 3 to go In control of my own destiny

    When I read the title. I thought no one would reply. Hoffa and hall need to go
     
  19. Bo if you are going to be the next general president I wish you could at least know the proper usage of to and too.... Maybe you can't read the contract that's why you can't see the concessions. Hey wolf ....

    He was also busy getting the GEB to secretly amend the IBT constitution in order to run roughshod over union democracy.

    I was a fan of hall up the end of contract negotiations. Then he got the Maspeth 250 back to work and that gave him a bump in my eyes.. until I saw how he was able to get the contract implemented.
