Local 683 principal Hofficer Todd Mendez didn't want to pay a $100 fine that the Election Officer imposed on him for harassing and intimidating political opponents. So he appealed. His appeal did result in an altered penalty. HE NOW HAS TO PAY A THOUSAND BUCKS from his own money, instead of the 100.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Todd Mendez is a joke at JC 42! Even us Hoffa Supporters don't like him! Everyone in JC 42 knows that his attorney and Frank S from 952 call the shots for him! He isn't bright enough to make any decisions on his own.

TEAMSTERPETE.....I agree with you! Todd is an idiot! Our local has helped their local out with transit negotiations. Apparently the word is that he don't know S*#t! And to top it off, he hired a guy that actively campaigned and ran AGAINST our brothers at local 36! WTF.........Regardless of who this misfit wants to campaign for, we don't need a guy like this in the TEAMSTERS. Its guys like this that give our great union a black eye!

You guys are hating cause he's the youngest ST in the JC !!! Give the guy some slack, If he needs guidance then why shouldn't he get help from other locals and the JC. Teamsterpepe since your a Hoffa supporter why are you bringing a brother who's on our side down? Your in local 911 he's in San Diego, what do you know what Todd has done? Or what he has accomplished with his members.

I agree with organ63, Why shouldn't Teamsters help out other Teamsters after all this is a BROTHERHOOD !! I recently worked with Todd on a campaign and let me tell you i've seen first hand how in tune he is with his members.

Fat boy you don't know what you're talking about. Todd is taking care of business at 683. The fact is Silva can't let go and he is in the back ground stirring up the ****. Silva has embraced some To Dumb to Understand crack heads to go after Todd. Those dumb asses don't even know they are being used for silva's own personal reasons. He don't give a shot about the members only himself. It makes me sick that you ass holes who don't know shot run your mouths.

What local are you from fat boy. Please don't say 848 because if you are you should really keep your mouth shut. You guys got problems of your own.

Guess what FATBOY, he turned on his boss for a reason .. Lets talked about substandard contracts ! Crest Beverage comes to mind !! But you wouldn't know anything about that FATBOY ... Todds members even at Crest love him. He's there for them for whatever they need and he's making changes in all aspects of running that local for the better. Name one thing Shannon did for local 683

ARE WE MISSING THE BIGGEST THING HERE??? Who RATTED on Todd. Isn't there a line in our oath that states i will not knowingly harm a fellow brother? Sounds like brother Todd was harmed but by who??? I know it couldn't have been by the guy running for international president of the teamsters could it??? God I hope not.

Local 683 had a long history of political peace until Mendez came along. Who hired him? When Mendez turned on Shannon he should have known that Shannon wouldn't go away quietly. So because of his own disloyalty, I hope he NEVER has political peace.

And whats with you and the name calling? You must have a personal interest in 683. Are you Mendez? You could take a page out of IBeBad's book and engage in a little civil discourse.

And Organ63, if you are a Local 63 employee, why don't you keep your nose out of other Local Unions politics? And I know plenty about 683... its my Local.

I am a member at local 683, I also work at Crest and am very familiar with Todd and the rest of the staff at 683. The only reason any of us at Crest know Todd is because he USE to come around when he needed our support to run against Shannon. Now we see his flunkie come out here to try and represent us! I believe that I speak for most of our guys in saying that 683 continues to give us horrible representation just like they did when Shannon was here. Nothing has changed! The few times that we see Todd, he comes across as a THUG/BULLY who is highly uneducated and feels that he has to yell and argue if you disagree with him.

LuisD, if you are the Luis D that was here helping Edgardo organize our merchandisers then you know that this is a DYSFUNCTIONAL local. These guys cant get anything right! The fact that 683 and the so called "international organizer" left our merchandisers hanging is horrible. Edgardo the organizer along with 683 pulled out of the election. All the people that had committed to the Teamsters and 683 are now on the hotseat. These guys are pissed and will now never become union! When you have ignorant guys like Edgardo standing at our fence cussing and yelling at people, it looks really bad! It makes us all look really ignorant! I totally believe in the union! But I dont believe in people who are not qualified for the job! Our contract is getting ready to expire soon. The fact that these guys abandoned us last month is going to make our negotiations that much more difficult. The company now knows that Todd and the rest of his staff are weak and will cave in to any pressure. After the last fiasco with the merchandisers, some of the warehouse and side loaders are talking about getting rid of the union.

Zepeda, i am the guy that was there on the ground for that campaign. We pulled away from that campaign because there was no interest in those merchandiser going union. If you were at the BB-Q you saw that not one merchandiser was there. And as for them being pissed, is that our fault? We can't force anyone to become union if they don't feel they have the need to be. It's up to ALL of us to fight and support those merchandisers, if they really want to be union then you as a driver and the rest of your co-workers have a job to do and start talking to these guys, your on the inside and see your merch everyday. Good luck brother on your up coming contract negotiations.

If only every body knew the facts about the goings on at local 683 union house, there would be impeachment procedings happening sooner then later. Todd is only about himself, there are many questions about business dealings that have gone on down there, something's wrong and there are a lot of shady things happening that dont add up! they need to audit local 683 books! sooner than later were being ripped off as we speak. I still don't know how todd got elected! no experience no history, he sides with the companies in stead of the members. if he ever answers his phone hel say I'll get back to you so he can go somewhere and get the information that he needs to get back to you with he just dont have a clue, hes gotta go!
