Sideline The Filibuster
Dear Union Sisters, Brothers, and Supporters of Labor:
As you know, Anti-Union politicians are working to take away our democracy. As union members we are very familiar with efforts to keep us from having fair union elections. We know corporations try to rig the outcome of elections to maintain their power and stop our organizing.
Undemocratic elections silence workers and empower companies to exploit them. If voters are not able to have our votes fairly counted, we will no longer have a government of the people, it will further become a government of the powerful and connected.
We need to pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act. To do this we need to turn up the heat on all Senators to ensure they know our unions are paying attention, and we’re ready to fight.
President Shuler has challenged every state to drive 1,000 calls during our call-in actions, which starts today, for each Senator to turn up the heat.
What this will require is outreach to leaders and delegates of our councils to drive calls into both Senator Johnson’s and Senator Baldwin’s offices. Think of the best ways to drive as many calls as possible from your council and labor union. We must act now.
HOW TO MAKE A CALL TO PROTECT DEMOCRACY:
There is a click to call link that has gone out, which makes this process simple.
- Click on this link and fill out the contact information including your cell phone number.
- Once you submit the form, your phone will automatically receive a call which puts you through to the AFL-CIO Legislative Hotline.
- Since you have given your zip code they will direct you to the offices of your Wisconsin Senators.
- It will prompt you with a message to Sideline the Filibuster and pass voting rights bills to protect our free and fair elections.
- You will next be connected to your first Senator. You will likely get their voicemail and will need to leave a message. After the first message you will press the * [star key] on your phone, which will automatically push you through to do the same with your second Senator.
- This process should only take a few minutes and will send a message that the Labor Movement in Wisconsin is plugged in and paying attention to what the Senate is doing to protect our voting rights.
You can also dial directly: 1-866-832-1560
Share this on your social media accounts and ask your board members and delegates to participate.
Our democracy is under attack. To protect it we must sideline the filibuster and protect our right to vote. Call your Senators TODAY!

Teamsters JC39 Announces New Executive Board! Teamsters Joint Council 39 Supports the PRO Act
The Senate is currently considering their version of the bipartisan infrastructure package that is a major policy priority for the Senate, President Biden, and the Teamsters. We need to let senators know that Teamster members like you are in support of this bill. Will you take two minutes and write an email to your senators to let them know that you support the bill?
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act represents the greatest investment in the American workforce in over 80 years and will create an average of over 2 million jobs per year over the next decade. As Teamsters, we know that any infrastructure bill before congress needs to make significant and lasting investments in every community before it is worthy of our support. The Senate bipartisan infrastructure bill does just that.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act includes $550 billion in new federal investment in America’s infrastructure. This includes significant funding for roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports, airports, water and energy infrastructure.
President Biden has been clear that this infrastructure investment must create good union jobs. To that end, the bill includes important labor standards like broad Davis Bacon coverage and a comprehensive Buy America provision to ensure that all taxpayer-funded infrastructure and public works projects are built with American manufactured products and construction materials.
We need your help – email your Senators today and tell them that you support the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. As a Teamster, you know just how important it is to make lasting investments in our nation’s infrastructure. By passing this bill, we will be one step closer to making President Biden’s campaign promise of Building Back Better a reality.
Congratulations Scholarship Winner Sophie Albrecht!
Secretary Treasurer Tim Wentz congratulates Sophie Albrecht, the $10,000.00 recipient of one of the James R Hoffa scholarships for next fall. Sophie is the daughter of member Amy Albrecht, who is the Treasurer/Clerk for the village of Milltown. Sophie will be attending the university of Wisconsin La-Crosse. I had the opportunity to visit with both of them recently. Amy is a very proud mother who states that Sophie was so excited when she found out she won that she could barely talk but was very honored to receive the scholarship. Sophie states she is not sure of what her major will be at this point, but will be pursuing something business related. Sophie was very active in high school and is looking forward to starting her new adventure in college. Sophie is a very bright and outgoing young lady with a great personality who we are sure will succeed in anything she pursues, and Local 662 would like to wish her continued success in what ever career she chooses.
