Teamsters endorse Joe Biden??

MyTripisCut

“They” are coming for us.
You really think Fedex being under the RLA and paying their employees pennies, compared to our wages, doesn’t affect the hourly workforce? In the long run?

The Democrats are no longer the working man and woman party Like they used to be. They are the party of everything that is wrong today in America. The party of illegal aliens. The party of turning a bling eye to rioting and looting. It’s sickening.
They are free to quit Fedex and work here. Rioting and looting are unrelated to the RLA.

The democrats take the union vote and the black vote for granted, every 4 years they come around pandering for our money and our vote then forget us.

A "Teamster endorsement" means absolutely nothing now a days, maybe 20 years ago.

I presume in their minds that had to pick the worst of two evils, the Democrats are more concerned with the minority vote currently and with the Teamster's past history of leadership on the international and local levels it has a lot of explaining to do with their (nepotism, mob influences and the Good Old Boy - isms).

That is why they are pushing this BLM propaganda, Typical smoke screen to cover their asses. Maybe they are being fooled again by the Democrats that they will actually do something to bail them out of their underfunded pension plans, ain't going to happen and they know it, these plans count on healthy stock and bond markets, a strong economy and high new continuing membership. A Biden/Harris victory will shoot that to Hell, just look at their promises and platform...

They endorse just 3 months prior to the general election should show just all of us how wholeheartedly they are buying this Biden ticket. Many years ago the Teamsters distain for socialism and communism is well documented, apparently they are appeasing and cowering to them now.

I have not received any junk mail from them about their wholehearted endorsement, sort of glad about that...At least they are not wasting our dues money on a lost cause and overwhelming our suffering postal workers who are having a nervous breakdown over these potential mail in ballots.

The economy and stock market always do better under Democrats

Here is the link to the Teamsters official announcement

The Teamster's spokesperson provides some reasoning as to why they made the call, though its a PR event.

Here is the Biden's campaign page regarding unionized labor.

One could always read and consider these documents, as opposed to expressing knee-jerk anger at the discovery the world doesn't align perfectly to one's own world-view. But I expect such items might be instantly regarded as lies to be discounted based on their source. Meanwhile, a cursory and basic Google search turns up quite a few articles generally advising President Trump is adverse to union interests. I would not claim these are unbiased sources- but not many "Trump is pro union" articles pop up.

I'm a Pro-Union Teamster. A liberal. And I disapprove of Trump.

I exist. And there seem to be a couple others in this thread that are similar. So are the Teamsters really out of touch with their membership, since we are members?

This Browncafe site seems to have a vocal conservative membership. There is nothing wrong with that. But beware an echo chamber of your own creation. There is one person here saying they outright block anyone who supports Biden... a person actively and intentionally making their comfortable-ideas space smaller and 'echo-y-er'. They don't get more snowflake than that.

Don't be like that guy.

I won't say you can't be a Republican and be in a union. I will say your party doesn't support the labor movement and is actively trying to destroy your livelihood. It's just the way it is, don't be mad unions support unions.

Did I ever say I didn’t want Union wages and benefit? I would never work at Fed Ex. I am just expressing my displeasure with the Teamsters supporting Biden. People at our income level, with our work ethic have no business being associated with anyone or any organization that thinks Biden is the answer. Go to YouTube and type in Raccoon beaten by mob. Those are the Biden voters.

It's funny you think Biden/Harris are left. They'd make one helluva Republican ticket. The only difference between Biden and Trump is that one is a corporatist and the other is a fascist corporatist. It's more of the fake choice presented to voters to keep the status quo. These fake/centrist/right leaning Dems just put a kinder, gentler face of the same policies that Republican support. Why? because they're all beholden to the money of Wall St and multi-national corporations. If you're not part of the donor class your voice isn't heard.

Despite Democrats not doing anything for private unions in many years. Public unions? Yes. Dem slush funds. But bringing in more illegal aliens to replace union workers is more important to them.
Unions don't need politicians to "do" anything for them, other than leave them alone

Biden is half dead. The guy doesn’t even know where he is half the time. He will be a puppet if he wins controlled by the far far left. Imagine being the Democratic nominee and never sitting down for legitimate interviews by credentialed journalists 3 months out from Election Day. Lolol. Cardi B. There is a reason he is doing zero one on one interviews and he‘s hiding in his basement. Because short of his team feeding him every line he says, he doesn’t even know what day it is, what time it is, or what state he is in.

Good point, still sadly better then the alternative. Maybe we need another puppet POTUS, the war criminal GW still can't sit right. Also mine as well go with a hand from the far far FAR left to ram up old Joe.
