Six leading contenders share with union members their views on pension reform, collective bargaining.
Teamsters were busy following candidates across the early states in the lead-up to the Thanksgiving holiday, with visits in Georgia, Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire. As usual, members kept presidential contenders on their toes by pushing for commitments on issues that workers across the country care about most.
As the presidential candidates turned their attention to “Super Tuesday” and swing states, Teamsters members were there to push them on Teamster issues. Local union members and officials in North Carolina and Pennsylvania got in on the action as part of the Teamsters 2020 primary engagement strategy.
Week six in the Teamster Nation Blog digest of Teamster-attended candidate events found members hearing from presidential contenders at two big events held in Philadelphia and Des Moines.
