International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 391 Endorses Cal Cunningham for U.S. Senate, Building On Growing Support For Cal’s Campaign

Local 391 President: “Cal Will Make Sure The Concerns Of Working Families Are Once Again Heard In The United States Senate.”

RALEIGH, NC – The International Brotherhood Of Teamsters Local 391 endorsed Cal Cunningham’s U.S. Senate campaign, citing his strong support for working families, marking continued momentum for Cal’s Senate bid against Senator Thom Tillis.

Teamsters Local 391 in Greensboro is the largest private sector union in North Carolina, representing thousands of members in key industries including beverage production and delivery, law enforcement, public schools, and freight drivers.

“The U.S. Senate is not working for the middle class and it’s time to make a change,” said President of Teamsters Local 391 Mike McGaha. “On the issues that matter most to our members – protecting a secure retirement and preserving pensions, protecting and creating quality jobs, and investing in our infrastructure and expanding opportunity – Cal Cunningham has a record that we can trust and support. Cal will make sure the concerns of working families are once again heard in the United States Senate.”

“As I travel North Carolina, one of the top concerns I hear from working families is that they feel left out and left behind by decades of failed Washington leadership that’s put tax cuts for international corporations before real relief for families who most need it,” said Cal Cunningham. “The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is fighting for a stronger middle class, and I’m ready to work beside them in the Senate to finally put this seat to work for North Carolina families.” 

The Teamsters’ endorsement builds on the growing momentum for Cal’s campaign, including 140 endorsements from leaders across North Carolina and support in all 100 North Carolina counties. Cal is also supported by End Citizens UnitedVoteVets, the League of Conservation Voters, the Voter Protection Project, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
