Carhaul Teamsters stood united and Voted No to reject concessions, not once but twice. Today, they overwhelmingly ratified a new national carhaul agreement—stripped of Hoffa’s concessions.
A year and a half ago, Hoffa and Carhaul Director Kevin Moore cut a deal with the employers that cut carhaulers wages and gutted their job security.
Members Voted No to reject concessions by 87 percent—and they’ve been networking and uniting ever since.
Teamster carhaulers deserved better than contract they ratified today. But by sticking together, they defeated the worst of Hoffa’s givebacks.
Hoffa will issue the usual press release bragging about the ratification vote. It will fool no one.
“Hoffa and his weak negotiators sold out the members, but carhaul Teamsters united to defeat the givebacks and defend our union standards,” said Fred Zuckerman.
“The members in carhaul showed that Teamster members have power when we stick together and hold out for what’s right,” Zuckerman said. “That’s a lesson we’ll remember and put into practice at UPS and wherever our union goes to the bargaining table.”
