The ballots are out and we’re on the verge of making history. As of Saturday, 122,745 ballots are in. Tens of thousands of members who will vote in the election have not mailed their ballot back yet. Here are five things you can do right now to get out the vote.
What you do now will help determine the outcome of this election and the future of our union. Here's what you can do to help win this must-win election.
Get Leaflets in the Hands of Other Teamsters
Print up sample ballot leaflets and get them into the hands of your co-workers and other Teamsters. You can pass out leaflets before work or after work in the parking lot or in any non-work area (break room, locker room) at any nonwork time (when you’re off the clock and the Teamster you’re giving the leaflet to is off the clock also).
Volunteers will call thousands of Teamsters this Sunday to remind them to vote. The OZ-Teamsters United campaign has an auto-dialer that makes calling members easy. You can do it from home. All you need is a cell phone and a computer, laptop or ipad/tablet. Click here to volunteer for a shift this Sunday.
Make Sure Members Call for a Replacement Ballot
If you run into a member that doesn’t have their ballot, tell them to call 844-428-8683 to have a ballot mailed to them.
Take a Day Off To Get Out the Vote
You can reach hundreds of voters in a day. We can help. Call the NY TDU office at 718-287-3283 if you need info on the priority worksites to reach out to in your area.
