Teamsters Honor Workers, Including Law Enforcement, on May Day
04.28.17 — A Message to Union Brothers and Sisters from Teamsters Local 700 President and Teamsters Joint Council 25 Trustee Becky Strzechowski: The May Day event scheduled for May 1 in Chicago is supposed to be a celebration of International Worker’s Day — a day to empower the middle class to stand up for all workers’ rights. However, we have learned this is not the only message that is being communicated to the labor community. In the flier being distributed under the guise of a day about workers’ rights, there is a direct attack on a segment of the workforce — the law enforcement community. The statement acknowledges these are union brothers and sisters and then goes on to attack their contracts by saying “[i]f the people who run this city and the people who are running the federal government think they can move all our tax dollars away from jobs, schools and health and into police contracts to patrol us, they are making a big mistake.”
