    Frederick Douglass died on this date. In an 1857 address Douglass said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will”.

  • Teamster Vote 2020 Survey
    Posted On: Jul 16, 2019

    Working Americans are facing numerous challenges. Despite top line economic numbers that may look favorable, many workers’ paychecks are not growing. Add to that concerns surrounding pensions and health care benefits, uncertainty looms for the U.S. middle class.

    That’s why the 2020 is so very important for this union and its members’ future. The Teamsters are committed to making our presence known and demanding that presidential candidates make commitments that are important to our membership. That starts with input from our members.

    “The Teamsters want to hear from members about what their top issues and concerns are as the nation prepares for this pivotal election,” Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa said. “This union will be putting on a full-court press to demand that any candidate for president listen to our members and address our concerns. The Teamster 2020 survey is an important step as we hear directly from our members on what issues they’ll be voting on.”

    “Visibility will be key to maximizing the voice of rank-and-file Teamsters,” said Lawrence Geho, president of Local 888. “So please fill out the survey to let union leadership know your thoughts about what issues mean the most to you. We want all our members to feel they are a part of the process.”

    Together, Teamster brothers and sisters can ensure that this great union plays a critical role in electing a president that will truly stand with 0ur members and the nation’s workers.
