Teamsters United won the majority of the vote from Teamsters in the United States and elected six International Union Vice Presidents in the closest election in Teamster history.
We formed Teamsters United to win new leadership and a new direction for our union. That fight continues.
We are fighting for a rerun election to give members’ a fair vote.
We are uniting members to fight givebacks and win strong contracts, defend our pensions and benefits, eradicate corruption from our union, and elect leaders in our locals and our International who will fight for the members.
