Teamsters United supporters won five delegate positions yesterday in Los Angeles, as the Local 630 members Slate took the lion's share in the 6,600 member local. The Hoffa Slate won two delegates.
Local 630 has been considered a "Hoffa local" but no more.
Local 630 is made up primarily of warehousing and grocery Teamsters. The Hoffa administration' and Joint Council 42 leaders rammed through concessionary grocery distribution contracts and have failed to protect workers' jobs in the industry consolidation, or deal with unbearable productions standards faced by Teamster warehouse workers.
