Teamsters Joint Council 16 Endorses Ramos
August 11th, 2010

Charlie Ramos, who is challenging Sen. Ruben Diaz in the Democratic Primary, has received the endorsement of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Joint Council 16. Ramos has racked up endorsements from progressive groups that support same-sex marriage as well as pro-choice groups because of Diaz’s stance on those topics. This endorsement gives him a little more help from labor.

The union includes 32 Teamster locals in New York City and surrounding areas. Teamsters Joint Council 16 has over 120,000 members.

“I am proud to endorse Charlie Ramos for New York State Senate. His work ethic and commitment to working people make him an ideal candidate to clean up Albany and protect the needs of Teamster families in the Bronx and across the State, said George Miranda president of Teamsters Joint Council 16.

Ramos was more than happy to receive the endorsement.

I am humbled by the Teamsters Joint Council 16 endorsement, said Ramos. The Teamsters have been at the forefront of empowering working people and I am honored to stand with them and I kindly accept their endorsement.
