    IBT Locals Must Notify International Before Raiding AFL-CIO Unions, Memo States - Teamsters for a Democratic Union
    The Teamsters for a Democratic Union, in a July 29 statement, said the IBT memo 'appears to point in a dangerous direction. Instead of coming out squarely against raids, it provides a procedure to potentially initiate them, and even hints at a suggested reason: claim another union has a substandard contract.'

    TDU, which has not taken an official position regarding disaffiliation, observed that 'what the Teamster raiding policy will be in practice remains to be seen. Hopefully, the IBT will quickly arrange no-raid agreements with all AFL-CIO unions. We need solidarity with other unions and other workers, regardless of where their leaders line up on the AFL-CIO split.'
