On January 4, more than 200 ramp agents at Sun Country Airlines voted to join Local 970 in Minneapolis.
“We want this to be a career with good wages and benefits,” said Sly Oliver, a ramp agent that was one of the first workers to seek out union representation. “Now that we have the Teamsters, we have a voice.”
The organizing campaign was a coordinated effort between the local, Joint Council 32 and the International’s Organizing Department.
“This victory is a great example of what can be accomplished when we all work together,” said Tom Erickson, President of Joint Council 32 and International Vice President for the Central Region.
