For those of you who wait each year to watch those famous “Super Bowl” commercials, remember the beautiful Clydesdales and their drivers are Union (traditional Teamsters!), too! The health and safety of the players who put their bodies on the line for your entertainment are members of the National Football Player’s Association. Their Union has given them improved healthcare coverage and protections for injured players.  The retired players who built the industry also have pensions and healthcare coverage protected by their Union.
