New Teamsters who work in Transdev dispatch: Eric Nyberg, Lana Bonilla, and Chelsie Brumit.

Let's congratulate and welcome a group of 14 Transdev dispatchers who voted to become Teamsters in an NLRB election on February 10.

The dispatchers join 260 drivers at Transdev who became Teamsters in 2015. The drivers won their first Union contract last July.

"We are excited to welcome the Transdev dispatchers to our Union," said John Scearcy, Local 117 Secretary-Treasurer. "By joining Teamsters Local 117, they have the strength and unity of 16,000 members standing with them. We look forward to sitting down with the group to establish their priorities for bargaining so that we can work together to negotiate a strong Teamsters contract."

The dispatchers' Union Representative, Carrie Barnett, has scheduled demands meetings with the group on Wednesday, March 1 and Saturday, March 4.
