Explanation:
Creo que es más bien una "campaña de organización" que una marcha.

En el transcurso de una campaña de reclutamiento organizada por los Teamsters


Explanation:
Don't translate Teamsters. It is a well known union of truckers and warehouse employees, but it is a unique group, very well known as Teamsters. Their political power as a union compells the Democratic Party to include their agenda at the party's political platform.
Campaign drives are the typical 'campañas de reclutamiento' in Spanish.
