We highlight all of our endorsements on our webpage so members know who we have endorsed, and we direct members to our webpage via social media and email before an election. Depending on the particular race and its impact on our members, as well as on our capacity, we will do direct voter contact including phone banks or door to door canvassing to help spread the word about the candidate or issue.
In some cases, we will do targeted mail to our members highlighting our endorsement before an election. We work closely with Teamsters Joint Council 28 on these types of mailings.
In some cases, we will also contribute to the campaigns using DRIVE or dollars from our segregated fund to help that candidate communicate their message to voters. We are subject to strict contribution limits when we make contributions from either DRIVE or our segregated fund. All contributions must be approved by our full Executive Board.
