Traditionally during Presidential and Statewide Elections, Teamsters Local 200 alongside our Wisconsin Teamster Locals work in unison traveling the State providing information and the endorsements made by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council No. 39.  This year, we find ourselves utilizing other means than the personal interactions at worksites and plant gates due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. With the recent increase in cases in Wisconsin, our thoughts and concerns are with our members with their health and safety first.

The Local Union has been heavily engaged in the “TEAMSTERS VOTE WORKERS WIN 2020” efforts underway that demonstrates candidates that support Organized Labor, Collective Bargaining, Pension Protection, Affordable Health Care, Social Security and Workers Rights. Available from the Local are pocket sized guides that will help you recognize these candidates, no matter which part of State you reside as a member of Teamsters Local Union No. 200. Please email tbennett@teamsterslocal200.com to request the guide and the Local will mail to you the guide for your area. If you would like additional to hand out to your co-workers let us know in your request.

Brothers and Sisters, my name is Mark Hanley. I am a proud 29-year Teamster and have been Union Steward for 9-years. I feel in order to make a positive change in favor for Organized Labor, we have to start at the top and work down. Therefore, the upcoming Presidential election on November 3, 2020 is of the utmost importance. People need to realize that who you place in power can impact you daily working environment, job security, workers’ rights, pensions, and healthcare.

Get out and VOTE! Make a positive change for Organized Labor on November 3, 2020.

As part of Local 200  “Teamsters Vote Teamsters Win 2020“ Member to Member outreach, please take a moment to watch and listen to this message by LU200 Recording Secretary and Union Steward Clayton Moesch. The importance of the upcoming General Election takes on many different aspects, but let’s look at one recent ruling by the Trump appointed National Labor Relations Board. “The NLRB announced employers will no longer be restrained from disciplining or discharging stewards or officers who use profanity or engage in “abusive” actions in violation of an employer’s enforcement code of conduct.” For the last 7 decades, Union Stewards had protections only to be upended by a recent ruling by the NLRB General Counsel. These tested protections prevailed for 70 years, only to be discarded by the action of those determined to weaken Unions.
