Members of Teamsters 117 at Seattle Cold Storage facilites in Algona and Tacoma will be working under a different ownership group now that the company has sold two local warehouses to California-based Lineage Logistics.
After Americold, Lineage is the second largest cold storage company in the country. The company also owns and operates Seafreeze and City Ice, two cold storage facilities in Seattle.
Workers at all four Lineage locations will have protected Teamster wages and benefits and will be represented by Teamsters Local 117.
