RIP brother.

(Washington) – The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is saddened by the loss of Teamster brother Philando Castile in this week's tragic shooting in Minnesota. Brother Castile was a 14-year member of Minnesota Teamsters Local 320 which represents public and law enforcement employees.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Brother Castile's family and friends," said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. "We must continue to address issues of racial and economic inequality to ensure that tragedies such as Brother Castile's death cease to occur."

The Teamsters call on the state and federal governments to hold transparent and fair investigations to ensure that justice is served in Brother Castile's brutal death
