As locals and volunteers collect signatures for the slate they support and many members believe that Hoffa and hall have the biggest fight of their life coming up, it's no secret that Local 952 leadership has chosen to steer clear from the Hoffa-hall name. What they don't realize is by doing this, they have also left three California leaders names (Rick M, Ron H, and Rome A.) in the dust as well. Local 952 leadership is secretly playing both sides.This time around they are telling some that they are staying neutral and telling others that they do support Hoffa. Is it believed that they are talking to Sylvester? Not at all. Does this mean that no signatures are being collected? Guaranteed a few will pop up but in the past Local 952 leadership has always been vocal about their beliefs and what slate they support to best run our union (or the slate that will most likely turn a blind eye to PDK's horrible leadership) but they have not been seen trying to collect signatures at any of the yards this time. This choice has most likely came from PDK and UPS Business agent GM who know, amid the up coming delegate and local election, that they have no room to upset UPS members by asking them to support Hoffa-hall after the contract problems they had. They know that may cost them votes in the elections. What is sad, is that they can care less about the other 6,000+ members that Local 952 represents. The leadership has no huevos and will keep hiding in the dark. Make no mistake though, these will be the people in front of your yard in a couple of months asking you to send them to Vegas to the Teamster Convention because they believe that they are the best choice to represent you there. If they don't have enough courage to stand up for what they believe in at this time when it is most important, what make you think they will have enough courage to make the best choice on your behalf at the convention. Cowards!!!
