(Seattle, WA) – Waste Management rejected a new, good-faith offer by Puget Sound recycle and yard waste drivers to give the bargaining process an opportunity for success.

Local 117 offered to take down picket lines throughout the region at 9 A.M. on Saturday morning if Waste Management would agree to negotiate at that time and fulfill its legal obligation to bargain in good faith.

Waste Management rejected the Union’s offer and demanded that recycle drivers cease picketing this evening as a condition to meet.

“We made a reasonable offer to stop picketing when the parties meet to give the bargaining process a chance for success,” said Local 117 Secretary-Treasurer, Tracey A. Thompson. “Given Waste Management’s track record of not playing by the rules, it is not surprising that the company rejected that offer and continues to hold our communities hostage.”
