    Congrats. Slowly but surely these Hoffa=UPS colluding Union officials will be on the outside looking in.

    We will continue to vote the POS out.

    No word from your old guard loving butt about the fall of a 20 year hofficer at 10,000 member Local 952 in California. Can you give us your two cents on this horrible loss for the Hoffa loving puppets?

    People win and lose elections. What's the big deal ?


    You still haven't said who you are supporting in the IBT general election.

    Everyone running will be "old guard".


    You don't think some nobody like Tyler Bimbo is going to walk out of the woodwork

    with his white board, and take over the IBT.... do you ?

    Why would you say that about your own Local? After all they’ve gotten you your job back many times. Isn’t that right?

    I think he’s upset cause he lost his own election in his own local.

    My local is having a election soon too. It's already turning into a smear campaign.

    NLRB charges, YouTube videos, fights at the General Membership Meetings.

    Can't wait till its over.

    Are you voting for the racist incumbent Hofficer slate or the TDU slate?

    Lol. I'm waiting till everything is said and done before I make that decision. Also they've been telling everyone they are not TDU.

    I can't see this helping them.


    General President Candidate Sean O’Brien To Address TDU Convention


    From the same article....


    "In 2017, O’Brien was named Package Division Director. He insisted on including Hoffa’s political opponents on the National Negotiating Committee and building a united contract campaign at UPS.

    Hoffa opposed this direction, fired O’Brien, and replaced him with Denis T. Taylor purged multiple Teamsters United supporters from the UPS Contract Negotiating Committee for opposing givebacks and an information brownout."


    This is how TDU tries to spin the truth.

    The one Central Region VP that was booted from the committee, was because he

    couldn't follow the rules established by the Union Chairs. The guy wanted to post on

    FaceBook (like a 16 year old girl) leaking details that were not even agreed to.
