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).

Text and send Whatsapp messages to the Teamsters you work with. Send them a graphic reminding them to vote or a photo of you mailing your ballot in. 


Volunteer at an OZ-Teamsters United Phonebank

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.
