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.
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.
Action picked up on the campaign trail during week 10, which included members from two additional Teamster Local Unions getting into the mix with a Warren Rally in Virginia, as well as stops at events in Iowa and a training held for union members in Nevada as well.
In week eight of the Teamsters 2020 Primary Engagement program, the number of candidate hits ticked up over 100 … 108 to be exact. Union members from Iowa and South Carolina pressed candidates to go further in their commitments on Teamster issues like protecting our pensions and standing up for collective bargaining.
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.
