Congratulations to the 251 United Action Slate which swept the Hoffa-backed 251 Strong slate in the Convention Delegate election in a 1158 to 537 rout.
The day after the vote count, Local 251 members voted overwhelmingly to change their local bylaws to strengthen members' rights. The changes give members the right to elect their shop stewards, elect rank-and-file representatives to their contract bargaining and vote on any increases in officer salaries.
The bylaws reforms lowered the dues rate for all members who make less than $15 an hour and established a Local 251 Strike Fund to help members win strong contracts.
Building union strength by empowering the members: that's 251 United Action and Teamsters United.
