I will never apologize for standing up for my fellow Teamsters and all American workers.
All workers want is a fair shake.
Congress has turned its back on America's working families. There are Teamster families in every congressional district in America, and those families vote. Those who would oppose these families have done so at their own political peril.
We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face - a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party. And there's only one way to beat and win that war - the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight.
Corporate tax dodging impacts us across generations and over time. It is corrosive. It is unethical. It is unsustainable.
What's going on in this country? Unions stand against those trends. We've got to somehow insulate the robust American economy from this global economy that seems to want to devour our standard of living.

Today we are united, strong and on the move. Today we have a strong strike fund. Today we have the resources to run large-scale organizing campaigns against global employers. Today we have $100 million in the bank.
That's what unions do. They can get money, they can get support, they can get manpower.
Labor Day is seen as a day of rest for many hardworking Americans.
The mob's not coming back in the Teamsters Union. We've gotten rid of them, and we're free to be free of government supervision.

We vote - if the public votes 50 percent, we vote 70 percent. So we have a bigger impact with our numbers, and the organization and the manpower we can bring to a race.

If we're all together, we have money, and we start to organize, you're going to see the Teamsters Union start to bloom.
