Zuckerman leading in East.
They're counting already? I figured they'd be sorting them out for a day or two first.
Yes. google teamster election. the election supervisor has a page that results will be updated. so official..https://www.ibtvote.org/election-results
It ain't over 'til it's over but this is a good start, thanks for that information, iam4us.
I wonder how late they'll work.
I remember past elections going late into night. only like 240,000 ballots returned. i would expect a result tonight. based on east count, alot to still be counted. will grow central, west.
Ouch! Currently not looking good for Zuckerman. 8233 to 7191 Hoffa's favor.
Well...the Southern region has done their part and Zucerman is closing the gap. They should start Central today and let us pray for more of the same.
Needs to gain some votes...canada wont be friendly. sending a message though..no doubt if hoffa wins, a protest due to hall issue. will be interesting.
And Zuckerman has taken the lead thanks to Central Region with a huuuuuuugge boot in the ass from the Louisville, KY local. let us pray that it continues thatta way.
Louisville and Chicago locals really came thru for him.
When the Eastern Region was tallied up Hoffa was ahead by 6000 votes, that was ugly for Zuckerman and us, it had to have him worried...but now that the Southern and Central Regions have been counted Zukerman is ahead by 6000 votes, that is a 12,000 vote swing and I'm sure that right about now Hoffa and company are shaking in their boots...literally...I bet that they are nervous, have lost their appetites and didn't get any sleep last night. I wish I could be there to witness this and I hope and pray that the trend continues. Those printers (GCC), the locomotive engineers (BLET) and the BMWED's (whoever they are) that Hoffa absorbed obviously are not happy with the man. He have obviously screwed a loootttttt of people out there. I feel for them but I can assure you that the arrogant James P Hoffa just views them as ungrateful indigents who should feel lucky to have the jobs that they have. It is unfortunate that we all had to take this screwing for so long before anything could possibly be done about it. Now...it's not over yet, "It ain't over 'til it's over", said the great Yogi Bera but it sure is looking good right now.
Even the Hoffa local is giving him the boot.
Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Engineers.........they don't drive the train...they just make sure it stays upright..
Tyson Johnson voted out.....by his own Local......
Gordon Sweeton voted out ........by his own Local......
The Hoffa cronies are falling thick and fast......poetic Justice will soon ensue.
The Fat Lady ain't sung yet,.......but she's putting on her breastplate and schpritzing cologne down her throat.... ...
I hope so but I always remain cautiously optimistic, it's just a flaw that I've got. Right now the trend in the west is Hoffa and he's narrowing the gap. GCC and BLET are last to get tallied so let's hope that they do what their Central Brethren have done, we need some help here.
I just checked the West vote count, and it seems most of the big Locals.....Denver, Sacramento, ...... haven't gotten a total yet.
That could be good or bad.......I think good.
Still leading by 3700 votes.
It will be interesting to see how SLC goes, for some reason I think that's a big hub area.
not good. needed a big surge, Canada also Hoffa strong. just replacing the VP spots is one thing, the people replaced are still active as local presidents and can be used in any position by Hoffa, negotiating contracts, national directors, etc.. Zuckerman needs to win outright or this is a lost cause. Sorry to be so bleak.. had a feeling the West coast where corruption and pensions are blossoming would be rough.
You don't need to apologize for speaking the truth. It isn't looking good for us right now.
Yes their good sized but this has always been a very strong Hoffa local.
I believe the tide has turned and Hoffa was defeated here today
