    This group has really peeked my intrest. I am looking for more information. I heard some where that they are "aligned" with the national democratic party. Anyone know any truth to that? I have looked up some things from them, checked up on them and even printed stuff for my local brothers to read. Just want to know what it's really about before I dive in too far.

    Some of the info they have just to give Teamsters a better idea on how to file grievences and fight discipline is wonderful. I have never recieved good pointers from my stewards. I even took it apon myself to print form "letters of protest" for preloaders facing discipline for misloads last summer. Reforming some of the things I see just at my local level and help getting my co workers active in the union would be great. I actually had someone say "why should we care if they don't follow part of the contract that doesnt affect us?" I was doumb founded and told him "because it's our contract." But I digress. Thanks

    As things are going right now, I've found Teamsters for a Democratic Union a real good resource just like you said. I don't know if they are affiliated with any political party or something, though. I think they charge $25 a year to join them. But, their information is really good and worthy.
