Workers at All American Redi Mix in Kansas City, Missouri have voted to join Local 541.
The election took place November 15 and was certified November 29. The unit consists of 10 redi mix drivers, one materials truck driver and one mechanic.
“The workers are seeking fair wages, improved benefits and better working conditions,” said Jed Cope, President and Principal Officer of Local 541.
Cope said the International Union’s Organizing Department helped with the campaign. Manny Valenzuela, the Teamsters’ Western Region Organizing Coordinator and Greg Chockley, an International Union organizer, did a market analysis of the area’s redi mix market and worked to train Local 541’s agents, Cope said.
