What is DRIVE?
DRIVE stands for Democrat Republican Independent Voter Education—a political action fund built by and for members of the Teamsters union. DRIVE is by far the largest program of its kind in the United States.
DRIVE raises money from Teamsters in government and private sector jobs. The standard contribution is just one dollar a week. DRIVE spends its funds wisely—contributing campaign funds to public officials who stand up against layoffs, cutbacks, contracting out and indecent treatment of working men and women.
DRIVE dollars contributed by Teamster members like you go to defeat politicians who trample on the rights and needs of workers in city, state and federal jobs.
DRIVE is voluntary and every bit as important as your union membership. DRIVE means a more effective union that is better able to fight privatization efforts and cutbacks.
