    The Other Big Election - Jacobinmag

    With 1.3 million members, the Teamsters are the largest transportation union in North America. As the US economy continues to reshape itself around the sprawling logistics industry, whoever is elected the next Teamster leader will face the daunting task of organizing this vast, nonunion workforce — one that will determine much of the future of the labor movement.

    Teamsters will make that decision this October, in an election contest that pits the seventeen-year incumbent general president James P. Hoffa against challenger Fred Z, the president of the fifteen-thousand-member Teamsters Local 89 in Louisville, Kentucky, and his Teamsters United reform slate.

    Gut feeling.

    H is 73 and in poor health.

    What does he have left to prove?

    hall is younger and has a fire in his belly. He embarrassed Fred last night.

    I stand by my prediction.
