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.
Legislation would increase corporate taxes of companies that don't curb top executive salaries.
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.
Whether it was as candidates winning elections or as volunteers working hard to get pro-worker people elected, this union gave its all.
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.
Next week's election could significantly affect workers, especially in Kentucky and Virginia.
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.

Authorities need to come together to craft a plan that keeps workers in the middle class for years to come.
