Solid Waste Workers Join Local 350

Thirty-five workers at Republic Services, a waste company in San Carlos, California, have voted to join Local 350 in Daly City.

On February 10, the customer service employees, clerical workers and dispatchers voted to form their union with the Teamsters.

“The workers want improved benefits, fair wages and better working conditions,” said Bob Morales, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 350 and Director of the Teamsters Solid Waste, Recycling and Related Industries Division.

On November 18, 2009, about 30 mechanics at the same Republic location overwhelmingly voted to join Local 350.
