“Let’s Get America Working”

Why, after all these years

“I am still a proud Teamster!”

Big Business, not so much!

We need to fix and/or replace our infrastructure now.

“Motivating Congress to Rebuild America

Show Lawmakers Why They Need to Act on Infrastructure”

Back in September, the Teamsters rolled out its

“Let’s Get America Working” platform.

Now, the real work begins for all of us.

Getting these proposals instituted is a marathon, not a sprint.

Congress won’t just overnight decide it needs to hurry up and come up with a long-term funding proposal to cover trillions in infrastructure improvements, for example.

But if elected officials hear from scores of Teamster members and other everyday Americans, they will make it a priority.

There are Democrats and Republicans who already see the value in these issues.

But others need motivation.

Since 2008, Congress has used more than $62 billion in taxpayer dollars to keep the Highway Trust Fund afloat, and, at press time, it has been over a decade since lawmakers have passed a long-term highway bill.

At the same time, the transportation system continues to crumble and the safety of those who work and travel along the roads and rails is being jeopardized.

One thing that could change lawmakers’ minds, however, is if they saw pictures of deteriorating infrastructure in their own districts.

And that’s where you come in.

As part of the

“Let’s Get America Working” platform,

the Teamsters have received several photos from our members and friends showing the dire state of infrastructure in their areas. But we need more.

If you spot decrepit examples of roads and bridges in your travels, please send them to teamsterphotos@gmail.com.

It will help the union in its push to get Congress to focus on improving infrastructure that will help workers and businesses alike.

Infrastructure investment is key to creating new, better-paying jobs and getting the U.S. economy back on track.

Let’s show our elected officials why they should be focusing on the issue now!

Teamster Strong, America Stronger!

I am retired because of Congestive heart failure

because of my ‘company’!

The company tried to stop my worker comp insurance?

The Teamsters President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer and teamster family,

came to visit me in the hospital

and many teamsters came to the house

to help me and my family in our time of need.

I lost the only heir to the Royal Family in an accident soon after

and the Teamsters President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer and many Teamster family members came to his funeral in support.

Nothing, not a peep from the company

that I gave most of my life to?

So!

“UNION YES!”

Teamster Strong, America Stronger!
