From the Ballot Box to Capitol Hill

Today Teamsters and other working Americans face unprecedented challenges, as well as opportunities, at every level of government. More than ever, the success of the Teamsters' legislative and political programs will depend upon the direct involvement of Teamster members.

The Government Affairs Department is committed to educating, mobilizing, and equipping our members to become an army of activists so that—from the halls of Congress to the ballot box—the Teamsters will speak with a unified and overwhelming voice

Legislative Program

The Legislative Program ensures that the Teamsters have a voice in the halls of the United States Senate and House of Representatives. Teamster priorities are monitored and promoted daily by a core staff of legislative representatives who often work in coalition with allied organizations, including the AFL-CIO and other unions. The program also relies on the active involvement of Local Union and Joint Council leadership, as well as rank-and-file members, to reach Members of Congress, educate them on our issues and deliver the message that they will be held accountable for their actions on Teamster issues.

State Program

The purpose of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Government Affairs State Program is to communicate and advance the goals of the Teamster membership through state focused legislative and political efforts coordinated within our Union. The program enlists a field staff of State Government Affairs Coordinators who are each assigned a region of the country, working with Joint Councils and Local Union leadership to support existing legislative and political programs, as well as implementing new programs where none currently exists.
