Be sure to have several clipboards, petitions, and pens. A simple card table will help for holding supplies and increases visibility. It's always best to work with at least one partner. That focused effort helps us get Teamster names and numbers so we can get news on the contract out quickly. And standing at the gates or parking lot, shows management that members are mobilizing to win real improvements to the contract."
