Teamsters Launch Campaign To Support Health Care Reform
Date:7/27/2009

Web Site, Ad Campaign, e-Activism Part of Unprecedented Union Effort

WASHINGTON, July 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa on Monday announced that the union will campaign vigorously for health care reform using a new Web site, an ad campaign, call-in days, e-activism and events planned throughout Congress's August recess.

The campaign will kick off with a new Web site today, teamstersforhealthcarereformnow.com, to mobilize members in the fight for health care reform. The Web site launch will be supported by a Web-based ad campaign on targeted state blogs and on-line publications.

Tens of thousands of Teamsters activists will be asked to call Congress on Tuesday to support quality, affordable health care for everyone now - part of a national call-in day sponsored by Health Care for America Now.

"Health care reform is too important for the labor movement to sit on the sidelines," Hoffa said. "The high cost of health care is burdening American workers, crippling U.S. companies, hurting the economy and adding to the deficit.

"I am personally urging Teamsters local unions to get out there and support President Obama's efforts to fix our broken health-care system. This is an unprecedented effort on our part."

The Web site features a toolkit for taking action, news, legislative updates and facts about the health care crisis facing America.

"Our e-activist effort is only the most recent in our ongoing mobilization of our members as we pursue our priorities: protecting and expanding American jobs and improving the quality of life for American working families," Hoffa said.

Founded in 1903, the Teamsters Union represents more than 1.4 million hardworking men and women in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
