Recycling Workers in California Join Local 350

On Friday, December 19, the workers at the Newby Island Landfill in San Jose voted 17-11 to join Local 350. There are 28 workers in the bargaining unit.

“The workers are seeking fair wages, improved benefits and they want to be treated with respect,” said Larry Daugherty, President of Local 350.

Workers want to negotiate a Teamster contract that will help put an end to management’s unfair treatment and stop the favoritism that is going on, Daugherty said. Workers also want to have their seniority recognized.
