In a massive display of union solidarity, Teamsters who work at the Darigold processing plants in Seattle and Issaquah, voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike over the weekend.
The final vote was 163-0. Voting took place at the Teamsters hall in Tukwila throughout the day on Saturday.
"This vote sends a powerful message to the company that Teamsters at Darigold are serious about defending their livelihoods," said John Scearcy, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters 117.
Our next scheduled meeting with the company is on May 25. We are also tentatively scheduled to meet on June 1.
