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.
Teamsters turned up for presidential candidate events in Florida and Nevada this week, including the “First in the West” dinner in Las Vegas where members heard from several contenders about where they stand on the issues that matter most to workers.
Iowa was the center of much of the presidential campaign world last week as contenders were drawn to the Hawkeye State to attend the Nov. 1 Iowa Democratic Party’s Liberty and Justice Dinner.
Teamsters had a busy week 11 on the campaign trail, attending events in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and for the first time, North Carolina. With less than 100 days until the first Caucus in Iowa, Teamster members are out in full force to push all candidates to talk about our issues and what they would do to address them.
The trail was a little quieter than usual during week nine, with just one Iowa event to highlight. However, big news came Friday when the union publicly unveiled its Teamsters 2020 Primary Engagement program. More on that below.
Week seven of the Teamsters 2020 Primary Engagement program featured members and local union leaders raising Teamster issues at candidate events across the country from east to west. Virginia became the 14th state where Teamsters have gotten out to make sure our issues are being addressed in this presidential election.
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.
