    Do you have any links or references or dates to when Hoffa did this upping dues without a vote?

    why do you need a link .if the hourly wage goes up the dues go up and when they went down so did dues .
    DUES = 2 1/2hours pay been that way 12 years I believe or maybe since last strike

    Dues increased from 2 Hrs pay/month to 2 1/2 Hrs pay/month back about the end of 2002. Dig out your old paychecks and take a peek.

    It was at the IBT Convention in 2003 I believe....it was voted on by the ELECTED delegates at YOUR Local Union at that time to change the IBT Constitution from 2 hours, to the current 2.5 hours per month....ask your Delegate at that time if you know who they were at that time.......KK

    It was right after CF went belly up. They had to get some of the $$ back that they lost.

    That building fund assessment should have been voted on by the Local members whenever it was instituted.

    This is correct, Blue Ribbon Committee was formed to assess the situation (takes heat off of Hoffa since someone else decided it was necessary) and they determined that an increase was needed. The distribution of the receipts was also modified (who got how much i e Local, Joint Council, State Conference and IBT). Then dues were increased by 1/2 hr's pay per month. And the phrase, "A nickle an hour for Teamster power", was coined. Ron Carey saw the need for a dues increase too but he put it to a vote and it got rejected (go figure) so Hoffa knew a vote on it was senseless.

    No but I do believe that there was a strike fund assessment many many moons ago.

    Additionally, Hoffa re-linked with the AFL-CIO in 1994 during the freight strike. The strike fund was broke and the AFL-CIO offered necessary financial backing for that strike.

    There was some kind of rumour ciculating, i think from this TDU rumour, that YRC was gonna be able to extend this MOU stuff for 2 years with no vote.

    I just got official word that this is untrue.
    The next contract will be done as it has been done in the past.
