Petition Drive

Petition Drive


Teamster members have launched a massive Accreditation Petition Drive to certify Tim Sylvester and Teamsters United as the official opposition slate running against Hoffa-Hall.

To be officially accredited, we are collecting a minimum of 50,000 petition signatures from Teamsters across North America by August 15.

We are building a Teamster-to-Teamster volunteer network that can collect the signatures and get the 200,000 votes we’ll need to win. Get involved today. You’ll find all the information you need to petition in your area. 

Click here to sign up to be a petition drive volunteer or to send your ideas or questions. Or call the Teamsters United Campaign at 718-693-0400.

Important Information for Petition Drive Volunteers

Make sure that petitions are signed correctly. To be valid, a petition signature must include name, signature, local number, and the last four digits of the member’s Social Security number. The last four digits are required by the Election Supervisor to verify that the signature is from a current Teamster member.  Members can only sign the petition for the region to which their local union belongs. Example: A member of Local 391 in North Carolina can only sign the Eastern Region Petition. See the regional listings above for details.

Promptly return all signed petitions to:

Teamsters United Campaign
315 Flatbush Avenue
