During our last DOC Retirement Committee meeting, members of the committee developed a survey to solicit your feedback about retirement.
The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and will help the committee make policy recommendations, which is the first step toward improving benefits.
Once the results are in, the committee will research what is fiscally and politically feasible and what will have the greatest impact on the membership as a whole.
As this process unfolds, we will continue to keep you updated on the work of the committee.
We are asking that you complete the survey by no later than September 16, 2019. Thank you!
The 2020 election is right around the corner and as union members we want to make sure candidates are listening to our issues.
Our International Teamsters Union has put together a short survey to help identify issues that are most important to members like you.
The survey asks you to rate the importance of things like retirement security, health care, and preserving collective bargaining. Will you take the survey?
Issues our union identifies will help us hold politicians accountable and ensure that candidates on both sides of the political aisle are addressing the needs of working families.
Thank you for your participation!
In 2017, we began an intensive three-year Strategic Planning Process for Teamsters Local 117. One of the priorities identified by Teamsters 117 members and staff was to grow our political program and to become the most politically-engaged Teamsters Local in the country.
As part of that planning process, we identified four key objectives for our political program. One of those included doing a survey of our membership to identify how politically involved our members already are.
Politics in this country all too often is divisive and polarizing, making it hard for well-meaning people on either side of a given issue to have constructive conversations. Understandably, this is the reason many Local 117 members don’t want anything to do with politics. We want to change that.
Please take a few minutes to participate in this survey. If you have any questions, please call or email our Political Director Dustin Lambro at Dustin.Lambro@teamsters117.org.
