Whis is it important for our members to be involved in the upcoming November election?

Steward, First Transit

The only way we can win is to be out on the streets. The Teamsters are a powerful union but we need members to be active. I'll do whatever is needed to win. Let's put on our armor and get out there!

It's a no brainer: if we don't vote, we don't have a say in what happens. Voting gives us a voice. I'm going to vote for the people who will do the best for us. I'm going to talk to members every time I can.

If you want change and want things to be better for you, then you have to get out and vote. I’m a shop steward so I try to rally the troops and let them know how important this election is.

We have to vote into office the people who best represent our economic interests, without regard to partisan political talking points. It’s all about economics. I’m talking to people and trying to involve as many in DRIVE as possible.

It’s very important for the Democrats to get in there. We have to stay together in unity to show how strong we are. If we don’t, we’ll get people in who are not for us. I’m going to talk to my peers and encourage them to vote the right way.

It all comes down to politics. The issues we care about are determined at the political level, so if we're going to have input we need to get involved. I've never phone banked before but this year, I'm going to do it!

We need to get the word out to help organized labor put in Democrats to help put food on the table for working families. As shop steward, I’ll talk to all the guys and encourage them to get registered and vote to win this election.
