Biden-Harris Victory is a Win for New York’s Teamsters

Statement from George Miranda, President, Teamsters Joint Council 16

Teamsters Joint Council 16 wants to congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for their hard-fought victory.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters endorsed the Biden-Harris campaign because it put forward a bold pro-worker agenda that will enhance the ability of hardworking Americans to join together and collectively bargain for better pay and working conditions. They also will prioritize pension reform to boost workers and retirees and will do more to protect the more than one million essential Teamsters on the job during this coronavirus pandemic.

Thank you to all of our locals who participated in member to member education and virtual phone banks. It is always through our commonality, in fighting for good pay and benefits, that transcends political differences. Now is the time to build consensus and work together for a stronger future.
