Members at US Foods voting on their new contract at the IBEW Hall in Tacoma.
Teamsters who work at US Foods voted overwhelmingly yesterday afternoon to ratify a new 4-year contract.
"It takes care of our kids...It's absolutely fantastic."
The agreement covers 128 drivers and warehouse workers who operate out of the US Foods facility in Fife as well as members of three other Local Unions.
"This is an industry-leading contract that provides strong, family wages, excellent health and welfare benefits, and retirement security for our members and their families," said John Scearcy, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters 117. "Our bargaining committee did a tremendous job."
Secretary-Treasurer Scearcy headed up the negotiations that involved four Teamster Locals - Locals 117, 162, 483, and 690.
"This is a really good contract," said Richard Milestone, a 33-year member and Shop Steward. "It takes care of our kids, we've got four more years of good quality medical, four more years of good quality pension. It's absolutely fantastic."
Teamsters at US Foods house and deliver food service products to restaurants, hospitals, daycare centers, and retirement homes throughout our region.
