    “In our view, we must have more union members in order to change the political climate that is undermining workers’ rights in this country,” said Teamsters President James P. Hoffa. “The AFL-CIO has chosen the opposite approach.” - 2005

    Now 15 years later we have more union members, many of which who don't vote.

    There is enough difficulty with the current bureaucracy.

    I'm pretty happy with the membership gains under Change to Win.

    When the trucks go automated, can we join the FOP and shoot thieves?

    When will Hoffa, Jr. retire? Isn't there an age where they have to? He already makes $400,000.00 more than he needs to on a yearly basis. He should be like President Trump and take $1.00 a year. Rejoining the AFL-CIO is so they can collect more union dues. Leave well enough alone. Too many cooks spoil the pot.

    I believe any and all elected officials should have term limits.

    If we were to rejoin, there would the requirement of a per capita pay for each member. Better we use the money for organizing, strike fund, etc.
