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.
(TRENTON, N.J.) – Today, truck drivers, Teamsters and worker allies testified before the New Jersey Senate Labor Committee in favor of S4204, legislation that will expand employment rights to thousands of workers who are misclassified by their employers as ‘independent contractors.’
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.
With less than a year until the 2020 election, those seeking the nation's highest office must begin to focus on issues that matter to workers now if they want to win.
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.
