This is what we union thugs do on the runway

Teamster Fashionistas.
...We model clothes to raise money for a children's charity.

Illinois State Police Master Sergeants represented by Teamsters Local 700 joined several State Troopers this month for a fashion show fundraiser to benefit children battling pediatric cancer. The amateur Teamster models walked the runway in Chicago’s West Loop. They raised more than $19,000 for Compass to Care, which helps families with lodging and travels expenses related to their children’s cancer treatments.

Joint Council 25 in Chicago tells us,
Both active and retired Master Sergeants participated in the show. The Teamster police officers included Fierstein, Dan Likens, Bob Meeder, Joe Micci and Lance Powell. 
“It’s very much a trend that our members love going above and beyond,” said William P. Logan, Local 700 President. “We’re proud of all these members who did something that was new—and probably a little intimidating—to support a wonderful cause.”
