The International Brotherhood of Teamsters’ Joint Council 16 has endorsed Rory Lancman for City Council. The thirty-three separate Teamster locals that make up the Joint Council represent 120,000 members and their families, and work in private and public sector jobs critical to New York's economy and well-being.
New York City's Teamsters are the backbone of our middle class, and they consistently stand up for the economic interests of hard working New Yorkers trying to provide for their families and give their children every opportunity to succeed.
George Miranda, President of the Teamsters Joint Council 16, had this to say:
"Rory Lancman has fought hard for Teamsters and their families during his time as a State Assemblyman — for safer workplaces, job security and fair treatment in the workplace. Rory has always been someone we can count on to do the right thing for his constituents and our members, and we know New Yorkers can count on him standing up for us in City Hall."
