Election Day – Time to Vote Like a Teamster


Election day is here and it’s time for the voice of working families to be heard. It’s time to Vote Like a Teamster! As Union members, this is your chance to make sure that the needs of working families are represented in government. There is simply too much at risk as General President Hoffa said, “A Better Way Forward Requires Showing Up to Vote. The issues before us are just too important not to weigh in on. ”

Not those who will always stand for corporate interests. “For too long, elected officials in Washington have sat back and done nothing while wages remain flat and roads and bridges continue to crumble. Meanwhile, the pensions of Teamsters and other workers are holding on by a thread and require government intervention., said president Hoffa.

This past weekend at the Teamsters Local 769 Annual South Picnic, President and Principal Officer Mike Scott spoke about the importance of having our voices heard at the polls. Members rallied around our current get out the vote campaign, “Vote Like a Teamster” and cheered as District 23 Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz called Teamsters to action stating “We have to vote like Union lives depend on it, because my friends they do.”

Teamster brothers and sisters, the moment is upon us. We will have to live with the results of this election for years to come and we cannot let all that we have gained be cast aside so quickly. If you haven’t already voted, please vote today and cast your ballot for labor. Vote Like a Teamster.
