Long-time Rep. Dingell, a Friend to Workers

The Teamsters are saying goodbye to a long-time friend and champion of workers who made it his mission to be a voice for those who too often didn’t have one in the halls of Congress.

Retired Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), 92, the “Dean of the House” whose 59 years as a member of the chamber is the longest in U.S. history, died Feb. 7 after a battle with prostate cancer. He leaves behind a six-decades-long record of progress for labor rights, civil rights and health care expansion.

West Virginia Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, is up to his dirty tricks again. This time, it is at the expense of our children, their teachers and the community as a whole. In an attempt to ram through a bill (Senate Bill 451) that would tack harmful legislation on to the same bill providing for salary increases for teachers and school personnel, Senator Carmichael has manipulated the legislative process to achieve the outcome he wants.

Hoffa, Teamsters Call on Congress to Reopen Government

Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa joined other labor leaders at a rally today in the nation’s capital to call for an end of a partial federal government shutdown that has left 800,000 government workers without a paycheck for nearly a month.

Speaking outside of Nationals Park, Hoffa said it is time for the Senate to vote on a funding bill approved by the House earlier this month that would fully reopen the government and allow not only federal workers but contractors as well to return to the job with pay.
