DRIVE: Democrat, Republican, Independent Voter Education

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.

Recently and most notibly to Local 87 members and those across California was the Prop 32 Campaign. Thanks to DRIVE donations, the Teamsters and other Unions were able to rally together to fight this proposition and protect the rights of workers. During this past election, Local 87 member, Joe Sumlin, took on the responsibility to help spread the word about how devastating Prop 32 would be to Teamster members by visiting the worksite locations. In addition, Joe was able to help register over two hundred (200) of our members to be able to vote. Joe was a key asset to Teamsters Local Union No. 87 during this past election. We thank him for all of his hard work and dedication to this cause.

If you would like to donate to drive, please stop by our office to fill out a short form. You may donate any amount you would like (beginning at $1.00) to be withdrawn from your paycheck through automatic payroll deductions. It would be from each payroll paycheck issued. DRIVE is completely elective. We are proud to announce that we have approximately one hundred and thirty (130) members currently contributing to DRIVE.
