North America's Strongest Union

Joint Council 7 Wins Big in Elections

In 2010, Joint Councils 7 and 38 merged in California, uniting over 100,000 Teamsters in 23 local unions. Joint Council 7’s territory is vast, covering 50 of California’s 58 counties and all of Northern Nevada. 

Despite this, in 2010 Joint Council 7’s endorsement list was only two pages long. It made endorsements in most of the federal and statewide races, but at the local level – city councils, county boards of supervisors, school boards, and ballot measures – it mostly stayed out.
