Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer and Sen. Bernie Sanders all participated and are currently still running for office. “America faces a momentous political choice, against a backdrop of escalating inequality and the ongoing erosion of workers’ rights,” said Guardian US editor John Mulholland. “The fact that CEO compensation has risen by 940% over the last 40 years while workers’ pay has risen by 12% in the same period is an outrage. Workers are getting a terrible deal and this type of capitalism simply isn’t working for millions of workers. We are pleased to partner with the Teamsters union to host a special town hall event where workers' voices will be heard." See where the candidates stand on worker's issues. On Election Day, November 3, 2020, please remember to stand with the candidate who most stands up for worker's rights.

Last month Teamsters Local 2785 won a grievance that secured approximately $14,000 in penalty pay that should have been payed out to UPS drivers for being forced to work on a holiday. The penalty pay situation was a complex contract item which the UPS feeder Driver Stewards picked up on and immediately reported to the Local. After Teamsters Local 2785 business agent Troy Mosqueda worked through two levels of the Grievance Procedure, the case was awarded in favor of the UPS drivers. Thanks to some diligent and smart work from both the Stewards and the Local, the Teamsters achieved one of the cornerstone goals of the Union, working together to protect members wages. Way to go Teamsters!!
