  • Teamsters Triple Threat in Iowa

    Three Teamsters are seeking state office in Iowa – a direct response to the legislature’s decision to curtail the collective bargaining power of unions in the state.

     "The Republicans have acted like unsupervised spoiled children and have trashed the State House and broken the government,” said Jesse Case, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 238. “We need adults like Christian, Reenie and Jeff in the House to fix the damage. Their opponents need to be grounded.”

  • Taking on RTW in Illinois

    Angie Bodine, a member of Local 777 in Illinois, is running for State Representative in Illinois’ 69th district. She believes that the incumbent, Rep. Joe Sosnowski (R), has let the community down and avoids tough votes.

     “My opponent is actively attacking working families in our state. He is a proponent of right-to-work legislation in Illinois, one of the chief sponsors of the school voucher program and wants to cut pensions for teachers and employees,” Bodine said.

  • NV Teamster Taking on Anti-Union Forces

    A Local 986 shop steward won a seven-way Democratic primary race for a state House seat in Nevada. Susan Martinez, a 30-year employee at the Flamingo Hotel on the Las Vegas strip, won 46 percent of the vote in beating back her opposition.

     Martinez said she understands the needs of her district, which she has lived in for more than two decades. Her top priorities include improving the educational system and repealing the state’s right to work law.
