Teamster-endorsed candidates, by state
Teamsters are facing a critical test with the upcoming Nov. 8 election. During the last two years, we’ve seen significant legislation pass that protects pensions, invests in vital infrastructure, and promotes good union jobs that allow workers to support their families. Still, many workers face roadblocks when they try to join together and bargain for better pay, benefits, and working conditions. That’s why we need to elect lawmakers who share our union’s vision. Getting out to vote is the way to keep corporate America in check. Check out your voting options and see what candidates Teamsters are endorsing in your area by going to www.teamstersvote.com.
