Get more active: Political Action
Democrat, Republican, Independent Voter Education – Drive
Big Business spends big money in Washington and Sacramento to to influence elected officials and push their anti-worker plans. They outspend working families on politics by more than 15-1. Through grassroots political action and aggressive lobbying on Capitol Hill and in State Houses and City Halls across America, Teamsters have stopped some of the worst attacks on working people.
You can take a stand for working families by contributing to DRIVE – the Teamsters’ political action committee. Contributions to DRIVE support a wide range of Teamster activities:
- Keeping members and their families informed on the key issues that affect our future, including voter guides that show the records of our Senators and Representatives in Congress.
- Rallies, news conferences, advertisements, and phone banks to build support on issues of concern to working people.
- Voter registration, and financial support for political candidates who will stand up for working families. DRIVE is non-partisan and independent from any political party.
We can’t use membership dues to do this work. All funding for our political action comes from DRIVE.
$5 or $10/week can make a huge difference. Most employers will deduct it from your paycheck and you won’t even miss it. Talk to your Business Representative about getting a DRIVE donation card to complete.
