Through the political process, Unions have fought for and won overtime, the weekend, the Family Medical Leave Act, the 40-hour workweek, social security, workers’ compensation, and more. Labor unions are also the only major group left that is continuing to protect these basic rights that big business is fighting to take away from us.
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.
Take a stand for working families by contributing to D.R.I.V.E .– your Union’s political action committee.
Join the Political Action Team!

The Teamsters 856 Political Action Team is made up of members just like you — working people who want to make a difference.
