We cannot strengthen families without supporting and expanding organized labor. I will always stand with the Teamsters for the right to good wages, safe working conditions, and the right to organize just as fiercely as I will stand against any legislation that takes power away from workers. I look forward to working with Al, his leadership team, and his members to support working families in the 8th.”

“We are proud to endorse Robert Menendez for Congress,” said Alphonse Rispoli Jr – President of Joint Council 73. β€œHe has shown us that he stands for Teamsters, so we stand with him. We look forward to helping get Rob elected and building our relationship once he is elected.”
