Great news for Teamsters in the food service industry! This weekend our members at Sysco voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new 4-year contract.
There was not a single no vote in the house. All Teamster drivers and warehouse workers who packed the union hall for the Sysco meeting on Saturday cast their vote to authorize a strike.
Sysco is proposing eliminating restrictions on the amount of overtime and access to vacation, but the bargaining team is not prepared to make any concessions.
"It's Our Union - And We'll Fight For It!" That's what Teamsters at Sysco are saying.
Members of Teamsters 117 who work in the food service industry are sending messages of solidarity to their Brothers and Sisters who work at the Sysco warehouse in Spokane.
