In conjunction with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Teamsters Joint Council 25 is hosting a Building Teamster Political Power Member Training from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, May 7, 2016 in Park Ridge, Ill.
All Teamsters Local 700 members are invited and encouraged to attend this important training. Participants will learn how to speak about political issues with fellow members, persuasion techniques and how to get more involved in politics through their locals and Joint Council 25. After a classroom-style session, members will be asked to participate in a real world activity, like phone banking, leafleting or a rally.
Working closely with trainers from the Teamsters’ Department of Training & Development, the IBT is aiming to complete these training sessions before the International Convention in June. Nationally, the union is prepared to have trained political activists available to participate in Teamster election programs in the fall.
Any Teamsters Local 700 member interested in attending this political training MUST register online here.
