James P Hoffa Statement on Reelection

It is a great honor to be reelected as General President of the Teamsters Union.

I want to thank my fellow candidates and supporters who spent countless hours campaigning for our slate.

I also want to congratulate our opposition for a hard fought campaign. There is more that unites us than divides us. Members may have their disagreements, but at the end of the day we are all Teamster brothers and sisters.

In the coming months and years, we will need to stand together to fight our real enemies: ruthless employers, unfair trade deals, attacks on our pensions and a hostile political climate. We will need to work together, regardless of which slate we supported, to win these battles.

Although this is a time of great division in our country, it is my hope that we can unite as brothers and sisters following our election and work to make a more perfect union.

- James P. Hoffa
