Politics may be distasteful to some, but there is no denying how heavily politics and politicians affect our lives each day. It is important for us to be educated and to exercise our right to vote in each election.

Local 1150 encourages its members to always be politically active, to vote when given the opportunity and to continually educate themselves about political issues. Nothing impacts our lives on such a broad scope quite like politics does, so it is important for us to understand the issues that affect us and to take action when necessary.

Education is the key to strong political action. Please use the link below to visit our Political Action page and learn all you can about the issues and people who affect your life at home and in the workplace.

The Teamsters National Black Caucus (TNBC) is an organization of black Teamster men and women, who are united by their special concerns for rights and conditions of workers. Working within the framework of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Constitution, the TNBC seeks to address pressing issues confronting black workers ranging from increased participation to outreach to the African-American community and other communities of color. The TNBC is not a union.

We are committed to raising awareness of different sexual and gender identities, eliminating homophobia, transphobia, and all sexuality-related phobias from the workplace, and advocating for equal treatment for all union members.

The Teamsters Veterans Caucus, Connecticut Chapter 1 have organized and assembled for the purpose of serving those who have taken it upon themselves to serve our great nation in both times of war and times of peace. We seek to foster an atmosphere of camaraderie amongst veterans and non-veterans and stand unified under the common cause of tending to the welfare of our country’s military veterans of the past, present, and future. We strive to become a reliable source of knowledge and resources that veterans within our community can access quickly and effectively. Our primary goals are to ensure that the veterans with whom we interact are accurately informed of their rights and benefits, which they so justly deserve, and to act as a mobilizing and diverse group of volunteers who stand ready and able to answer the call when a veteran is in need. We stand to acknowledge and enrich the lives of these noble servants so that their acts of patriotism and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
