Prop. 32 is the most recent effort by anti-union forces to strip union members in California of their voice in the political arena. Pushed under the guise of campaign finance reform to "stop special interests," Prop 32 is specifically aimed at crippling unions while allowing corporate special interests to continue their free-wheeling spending through Super PACs.

In addition to worksite visits and rallies, Hoffa will be available for scheduled media interviews. Please contact Galen Munroe at (202) 439-7427 or gmunroe@teamster.org with any media requests.
