Letter from the Campaign Trail

August 12, 2011: I’m writing you from the campaign trail.  I’m in the middle of a Rust Belt Tour that’s taken me through Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Detroit. 

The response has been overwhelming.  Everywhere I go members tell me Hoffa’s time is up and we need a new General President that will stand up to employers, protect our contracts and benefits and rebuild our union’s power.

I have no doubt we can win this election.  But I’ll need your help.

In a three-way race, it will take 150,000 votes to win.  I got 100,000 votes in the 2006 International Union election. We’re within striking distance of making Teamster history. 

Here’s what it will take to win and how you can help.

I have no doubt that working together we can make win this election and make Teamster history.  Send me a message with your comments and what you can do to help beat Hoffa and rebuild Teamster Power.

In solidarity,
Sandy Pope

P.S.  A huge thank you to all my Teamster brothers and sisters who are contributing their time and hard-earned dollars to this campaign. We’ve launched a nationwide fundraising appeal to ask you to dig deep for the stretch run.  Click here to check it out.  And click here to donate online.

As the country honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember his often ignored contributions to the labor movement. Dr. King understood the ties between labor rights and civil rights. He gave his life while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He spoke firmly against right-to-work laws, saying that “in our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.”
