MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic is proud to announce she has been endorsed by Teamsters Local Union 200 and Teamsters Local 344.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of our local Teamsters union. Milwaukee workers deserve respect and dignity. No one who works full-time should ever be in poverty,” said Dimitrijevic. “As Mayor, I will fight for our organized labor, protect the right of workers to organize, and ensure every worker is paid a living wage.”
“We stand by Marina in her campaign for Mayor because she shares our values and commitment to working people, fair wages, and a better Milwaukee,” said Bill Carroll, President of the Teamsters Joint Council 39 and Secretary-Treasurer of the Teamsters Local 344.
“As the daughter of an immigrant, Marina knows the value of hard work and that hard work should pay. We know we can count on Marina to stand with us,” said Tim Pinter, President of Teamsters Local Union 200.
Dimitrijevic’s endorsement by Teamsters Local Union 200 and Teamsters Local Union 344 adds to her continued support from organized labor, including a previous endorsement from American Federation for Teachers 212, Milwaukee Area Technical College.
