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.
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.
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.
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.
