Earlier this year we ran a Rebuild 695 slate to represent our union at the Teamsters National Convention. Usually, the officers of the union run unopposed.
We ran to be able to vote on rules for the whole Teamsters union. Results came back early spring: they only beat us by 27 votes!
Schultz, Bruger, Whedan, and the rest of them sent mail calling our people “trash”.
They had all the advantages — contacts, incumbency, money — and even with that it was CLOSE.
Teamsters in 695 are looking for a change up. Let’s keep workin’ on this rebuild.
