Day of Action planned for Wednesday, January 30

CLEVELAND, January 25 All BLET members are being urged to participate in a Day of Action on Wednesday, January 30, to let Congress know that we do not support cuts to Railroad Retirement, Social Security, Medicare and education.

Millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations have hired an army of lobbyists to invade Capitol Hill and persuade Congress to make cuts to these important parts of our social fabric, while keeping tax breaks for the rich and corporate America. We may not have their army of lobbyists, but we do have a coalition of Teamsters and other groups across America that are mobilizing our own grassroots army to stop these draconian cuts that only benefit the top 1% of Americans.

On Wednesday, January 30, events are being held across America to let Congress know loud and clear that we will not stand for cuts to the earned benefits of all Americans and that it is time for the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share.

The BLET National Division is urging Divisions, the BLET Auxiliary, General Committees of Adjustment and State Legislative Boards to participate in this January 30 Day of Action and to make your active and retired members aware as well. To find an event happening in your area, please go towww.americawantstowork.org. Please check back often as events are continually being added as they are finalized.

If your Division, Auxiliary, GCA or SLB plans to participate in one of these events, please let the Teamsters Department of Field & Political Action know by calling (202) 624-6993. Rally signs are available for your use.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Field and Political Action at (202) 624-6993 for more information.
