Union-Friendly Politicians Support Workforce Issues

Source: Teamsters

Recently, Secretary of State Jesse White and State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka addressed the Joint Council 25’s delegates meeting in May. In addition to the meeting, the Chicago-based Joint Council 25 hosted a fundraising breakfast that morning for White.


“Both Secretary of State Jesse White and State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka have respect for working families and are doing fantastic work supporting the labor movement,” said John T. Coli, Joint Council 25 President. “We were honored to have them speak at our delegates meeting.”

White told the delegates about how he continues to improve the Illinois Secretary of State’s office by supporting legislation on fake identification cards, expediting the license plate process and changing the face of the organ donor program.

Topinka discussed how the State Treasurer’s office respects working people’s rights and how the office successfully makes a profit for Illinois through its unclaimed property program. Topinka will look for the Teamsters’ continued support in future labor-friendly legislation.
