Teamsters United = inexperienced and down right laughable.

    The slate has a who's who of inexperienced agents with as little as six months experience as business agents and stewards. Being a long time steward I have nothing but respect for all stewards. Steward to international Vice President is a real freaking leap. Knowing what I know and I will always be learning if the teamsters United was elected they would have to keep everyone that works at the international to know anything about anything. We would be a freaking joke.

    The people that are employed at the international would be plucked up by other internationals in a heartbeat leaving a void of experience that would damn us into the Stone Age. Thank God this won't happen but it is very very scary. Any way Sandy Pope wouldn't even touch this band of gypsies. That's saying a lot.

    You should. Sean is the future of this Union. You vote the other way, we may not be Teamsters for very long.

    We got thousands of signatures. F yea. We worked our ass off. I feel so great right now with my one hour sleep and after working an eleven plus hour day yesterday in the package car.

    I want to thank all of you here for keeping me motivated to grind hard.

    I'm a bit more "open minded" than some of the guys in this thread, but I have to agree with this. Running stewards for International VP spots is a joke.

    I can't see myself voting for Hoffa again unless something really obscene about Sylvester comes out. Same deal with hall. I've met Sean O a few times and think he's a solid guy, pretty old school Teamster. No idea why Hoffa isn't stepping aside and letting this guy run for GST..
