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.
