Economic Stimulus

May 12, 2008: This week, the IRS will start sending out economic stimulus checks. You'll be getting one in the weeks to come.

You can no doubt use the extra money in your wallet. We're asking you to consider sharing some of it for another, important kind of stimulus.

In TDU, we are working to stimulate Teamster Power. We’re asking for your support today to keep our movement strong.

We’re organizing every day to return our union to the members—and return the fighting spirit to the Teamsters.

We’re mobilizing to defeat contract givebacks and benefit cuts that are taking money from members’ wallets faster than any Bush rebate will put it back in.

Building a movement to return this union to the members isn’t easy or cheap—but it’s worth it.

Right now we’re in the middle of a fund drive. In recent weeks, our members have pitched in nearly $10,000. Can you help?

If you can, put some of that IRS check to work with TDU. We promise you that we will not waste a penny.
