A BIG Thank You goes out to all who participated in the Vote Like a Teamster Challenge and we have a winner for week number one. We received many photo submissions and Robert Brown of Gold Coast Linen in West Palm Beach Florida is the Teamsters Local 769 member who was randomly chosen from the first weeks entries to be featured above and to receive a FREE Teamsters Local 769 T-shirt.
There are many issues facing working families these days and all of them will be affected by the 2016 elections, both at the top of the ticket and all the way down the ballot. Each election we are faced with important choices and voters like the Teamsters pictured on this page, along with other labor unions across the nation, will be standing up for candidates that fight work workers rights and a strong middle class. The right to collectively bargain remains the only clear pathway to the middle class and it is under constant threat from corporate sponsored legislation and anti-union candidates.
This election season we ask our members as well as friends and family to stand up for candidates who are proud to stand with labor and to “Vote like a Teamster”. In past years we declared that we were Teamsters and we vote but voting itself is just not enough. We need to focus specifically on candidates that support collective bargaining and stand for union values and that is why this election season we are asking you to “Vote like a Teamster”.
The Airline Division is very involved in Capitol Hill, including raising the standards in the aviation industry which includes above and below the wing. This is of the utmost importance to everyone in the aviation industry and the public’s safety. That is why I Vote Like A Teamster.” says Teamsters Local 769 Business Agent David Renshaw.
You too can participate in the Teamster Challenge: Teamsters Local 769 is again challenging voters to show their Teamster spirit and participate in our “Vote like a Teamster” CHALLENGE! Print the flier below as a full page and take a selfie (picture of yourself) dressed for work or at work holding it (ON YOUR BREAK TIME-of course). Post it on your social media page with a brief comment of why you support labor endorsed candidates. Use hashtag #UnionStrong in the post so we can see. Each week until election day, 1 random Teamsters Local 769 member who participates in the challenge will be chosen to receive a Teamsters Local 769 t-shirt and a featured worker profile on our website.
As always we also encourage all Teamster members to participate in the Teamsters D.R.I.V.E. program which supports candidates from all parties who fight for labor. You can learn more about the Teamsters D.R.I.V.E. program here and always vote for those who have the backs of working men and women.
We have a tough battle ahead this fall, but Teamsters are always ready for a fight. Stand up, stand together and VOTE LIKE A TEAMSTER!
