One of the biggest betrayals of the Hoffa-Hall administration has been to allow runaway subcontracting.
Weak IBT leadership has allowed employers to use subcontracting to eliminate union jobs, weaken our job security, devastate working conditions and union standards and weaken our pension funds.
Teamsters in freight, grocery warehouses, UPS, and UPS Freight have all paid the price. It doesn’t have to be this way.
As Local 89 President, Fred Zuckerman has taken on major employers who tried to use subcontracting to cut wages and benefits and eliminate Teamster jobs—from freight companies to Ford Motor Company to Kroger.
Each time, Hoffa-Hall took a pass on the fight. And each time, Fred mobilized Teamster members and won.
As General President, Fred Zuckerman will use Teamster power to defeat subcontracting and protect Teamster jobs.
