Vairma/Herrera 2021 Teamster Power Slate Petition Drive 2020

Teamster Brothers & Sisters, 

Thank you for coming to our campaign website and for your interest in helping us with our 2020 petition drive.  Your support of the Teamster Power Slate will help elect the wonderful, diverse group of leaders we have assembled on our team. We believe in a union that unites the membership to build Teamster Power through solidarity and diversity. The official election rules require we get 2.5% of our membership across our union to certify by petition that they want our slate accredited to be official candidates for the 2021 International Union elections. By helping us circulate these petitions you are helping us build a strong, grassroots campaign to take our message to our members and build Teamster Power! 

You may download petitions for your region and a copy of the rules for petition circulators below. Please review the materials below and read them carefully. We really appreciate you taking the time to support the campaign. 

In Solidarity,

Steve Vairma & Ron Herrera
