Stop National Right-to-Work
DC2 is excited to join forces with Joint Council 42 in their movement to stop National Right-to-Work. Right-to-Work For Less equals lower wages and increased work place casualties. According to the Department of Labor statistics, in states that have enacted RTW, poverty is higher and school funding is lower. Join the movement to stop RTW and take the pledge at weareonebigunion.com.

James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and served as General President for 14 years, and, in recognition of his tireless service to the union and its members, was honored as General President Emeritus for life. At the November 1999 General Executive Board meeting, then-General Secretary-Treasurer C. Thomas Keegel presented a resolution to establish the new scholarship fund. This site describes the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund (JRHMSF) and outlines eligibility requirements and application procedures.
The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund is an independent organization established and registered as a tax-exempt entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Fund is established solely to provide scholarships to the child or dependent of a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and contributions to the Fund are deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law. In 2016 the Fund awarded $1,200,000 in scholarships.
In 2017, the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund distributed $1.4 million in scholarship awards to the sons and daughters of Teamsters in the U.S. and Canada. We appreciate the support of our local unions and joint councils who have kept this scholarship the strongest in the labor movement.
