Teamsters Joint Council 42 Endorses Dr. Asif Mahmood’s Congressional Campaign

May 12, 2022

TUSTIN — Today, Teamsters Joint Council 42 announced its endorsement of Dr. Asif Mahmood for Congress. The group represents 23 Teamster Union Locals in Southern California, Southern Nevada, Guam, Saipan, and Hawaii. Nearly 250,000 working and retired Teamsters are affiliated with JC 42, the largest Council in the entire International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

Dr. Mahmood believes that we need more leaders in Washington who will fight for workers’ rights and safety while helping families make ends meet. In Congress, he will work across the aisle to pass legislation that the people in CA-40 need.
