Dave Delloso knows what it’s like to work hard and fight. The President and principal officer of Teamsters Local 312 in Chester, Pa. began his career driving a delivery truck before moving into a leadership role with the union. Now he would like to bring that attitude to the Pennsylvania Statehouse.
Teamsters and other labor allies in western Pennsylvania worked long hours in the days leading up to a special U.S. House election this week letting union members in the district know there was only one candidate who would stand up for their families. And the effort paid off.
Courts are currently front-and-center in sorting out gerrymandering efforts. But it should be independent panels who decide what fair districts look like.
Here are the news items of interest to Teamsters for this week, June 17 - 23, 2017.
A bipartisan chorus of voices demands that Legislature stand with workers against RTW, paycheck deception bills.
Members go the extra mile to educate workers about the need to vote for leaders backing union rights, higher pay.
