DRIVE - TEAMSTERS NON-PARTISAN PAC
Big Business spends big money in Washington to influence members of Congress 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.
But Big Business is pushing their agenda harder than ever. That means we have to fight back stronger than ever.
And we have to move forward with our own programs, like improving job safety, fighting for affordable childcare, and stopping abuses by corporate health providers and insurance companies.
You can take a stand for working families by contributing to DRIVE – the Teamsters’ political action committee. Your contribution will support grassroots action by Teamster families to stand up to Big Business interests.
And your membership to DRIVE will help elect political candidates who care about working people. 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. DRIVE is a critically important way that your Union can build political power to fight anti-worker initiatives, like the recent attack on collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin.
TEAMSTERS TEAM FUND
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has also established a fund called the Teamsters Education and Mobilization (TEAM) Fund. Unlike DRIVE PAC, which is only for active Teamster members, the TEAM Fund can accept donations from family members, non-active members and retirees.
The new fund opens up the ability of everyone to donate funds to the Teamsters political program – an important aspect of our union that works to ensure politicians in Washington, and at the state level, are advocating for the best interests of our country’s working class and Teamsters in particular.
