Anti-worker politicians are proposing national Right to Work legislation. These corporate politicians are doing the bidding of the employers and they must be defeated.
This is war and it is time for an all-out fightback by the Teamsters and all of organized labor.
So-called Right to Work has nothing to do with "rights" except the right of employers to try to weaken unions so they can pay workers less.
States with Right to Work laws have lower wages and workers have lower benefits. That's no accident. It's the goal of Right to Work for less.
Under Right to Work, workers can opt out of paying union dues, but unions are still legally required to represent them.
The corporate politicians behind this scam would never allow tax-payers to opt out of paying taxes. They are hypocrites doing the bidding the employers. The time to expose and fight them is now.
No local union can win this fight on its own. Our International Union should be leading the charge and uniting all unions and the public to fight this attack on workers. Hoffa has not been up to the task. He needs to get a clue.
I call on all Teamsters United supporters and every Teamster to do their part.
Teamster members are ready to fight Right to Work for less. We need leadership that will lead that fight to victory.
