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.
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.
Today, the Teamster Nation Blog kicks off a new weekly feature that will detail key issue responses from the 2020 presidential candidate field. It will highlight Teamster interactions with the candidates on the campaign trail, including answers to questions posed to them from union members and staff. We hope you find it useful.
