December 20, 2010: Our right to vote for top Teamster officers gives us the power to win a stronger union.
A lot of working people feel helpless in today’s economy. Fortunately, Teamster members don’t have to.
Unlike many workers, Teamsters have the power to do something to protect our jobs, our paychecks, our benefits, and our future.
We’re Teamsters—and our union can be a powerful force for fairness when we get our act together.
Our right to vote in this year’s International Union election gives us the ability to elect leaders who will put Teamster power to work for us.
The change we need is within our grasp. But it won’t happen by itself. It’s up to Teamster members to seize the moment.
It’s starting to happen. A thousand Teamster volunteers collected more than 50,000 signatures to make Sandy Pope an accredited candidate for General President.
It will take ten thousand Teamster volunteers to turn out the 175,000 votes we need to win when the ballots go out in October.
A volunteer army of 10,000 out of 1.4 million Teamsters. That’s an achievable goal.
Our future is up for grabs. Will you be on the sidelines or will you get involved? It’s up to us.
