    Some Old Guard "leaders" are abandoning hall and forming their own slate in 2016.

    Rome A the Secretary-Treasurer of Local 853 in Northern California, Chairman of the Teamsters Health and Welfare Fund in California, Trustee of the Western Conference of Teamsters Pension Trust Fund, President of Joint Council 7 in San Francisco and International Vice-President at Large of the IBT will seek the presidency of the IBT in 2016.

    He was seen at the 2014 Unity Conference in Las Vegas rounding up support. It appears the Southwest has verbally endorsed his candidacy; as have the majority of the locals that were moved from the company ran health plans to the inferior TEAMCARE plan following the disastrous UPS contract that was just implemented.

    What are your thoughts brothers and sisters?

    There's over a million non UPS Teamsters. I wonder what they think.

    That means the Old Guard is splitting.

    The people that ran on the Gegare ticket are sticking with Zuckerman and TDU will be joining their alliance.

    An Old Guard split is not good.

    It's all speculation at this point. All of it. All sides.

    Where are you pigs now?

    In Southern California the locals are freely telling the members that they are supporting Rome. Some say that Ron H will be his running mate as to get the Latino vote in Southern California.

    But I think this alliance has to do more with Hoffa and the IBT trying to tap into the Western Conference Pension Fund to save all the other ones.

    I could honestly ask the drivers in my center what they thought about the next general election and I would get the same look I get from mgmnt when I point out the obvious.

    Who would you support between hall/O'Brien, Aloise/H or Zuckerman/Pope slates?
  10. With about 15000 that vote. Lol
  11. Pope Zuckerman. Lol. Aloise H. Lol. I think they should all run. The three way split will be great.

    The Southwest will split between Rome and Zuckerman. All the locals here are upset at hall.

    If it's for the
    so if it's the best contract ever you wouldn't vote for it? Tdu is that evil?

    You think they should all run? Great! So do I! Umm...you do understand that an Aloise/H hall/O'Brien split benefits Pope/Zuckerman, right? Similar to the Durham/Shea split that worked to Carey's benefit.
